Addressing a provincial war veterans meeting at Masvingo Polytechnic on Saturday, Zimbabwe National Liberations War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) national commissar Francis Nhando said they have recommended that Jabulani Sibanda, former Cabinet Ministers Rugare Gumbo and Didymus Mutasa should be readmitted into the association and Zanu-PF party.
There are some of our members who were expelled from the party on allegations for belonging to the former Vice President Dr Joice Mujuru’s Gamatox cabal by Mr Robert Mugabe, the former President. Their crime was of seeing problems in the party ahead of the rest of us, otherwise they did not commit any crime. At the top of our list, we want former chairman Cde Jabulani Sibanda back in the association and the party. He was instrumental during the party’s 2013 general elections and during the One Million Men March held in Harare. We also have Cdes; Gumbo and Mutasa who deserve the same treatment because they are our members, so are Cde Kudakwashe Bhasikiti and Retired Colonel Claudius Makova.
Zanu-PF secretary for war veterans Victor Matemadanda, who was the guest of honour at the meeting, advised ZNLWVA to write a letter to his office to formalise the former members’ readmission.
