Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans (ZNLWVA) Bulawayo provincial chairperson Cephas Ncube responded to Zanu PF youth leader Kudzanai Chipanga’s threats to bar them from attending President Robert Mugabe’s youth interface rally at White City Stadium on Saturday.
We follow the revolution not individuals. In this case, we follow Zanu PF the revolutionary party and we cannot be told by misguided individuals whether we must attend Mugabe’s rally or not. We did not join Zanu PF like Chipanga, we have been in Zanu PF for years. It is in our blood and we, therefore, cannot be told by a kid now that we must not attend Zanu PF gatherings. The Zanu PF youth league must concern itself about issues surrounding the youths, not war veterans. Mutsvangwa is our leader. He was elected at our congress and until then and the next congress, no one can then say Mutsvangwa’s team is renegade. They are the ones who have gone rogue.
