Rodney Dangarembizi has denied Zanu-PF national secretary for youth affairs Kudzanayi Chipanga’s statement that he authored the press statement which denigrated the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and its commander General Constantino Chiwenga.
Dangarembizi said that Chipanga should own up to his mistake and not implicate him. Said Dangarembizi:
The leader of the Zanu-PF Youth League Kudzanai Chipanga issued an apology to the Defence Forces. Instead of owning up to his gross and grievous error in judgment he chose to implicate me and insinuate I was the author of the misconceived statement. I would like from the outset to categorically and unreservedly deny any involvement with the said statement and any association with the press statement in any manner.
Dangarembizi implicates Jonathan Moyo as the author of the statement in question. Said Dangarembizi:
I am reliably informed that there is a WhatsApp screenshot circulating where Jonathan Moyo is ordering Tongai (Kasukuwere) to ensure Chipanga reads the full statement. This explains why Chipanga was jittery. No wonder why everyone is happy with the stance by the millitary to place these culprits behind bars,
