MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa has spoken on his visit to former Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) chairperson Jabulani Sibanda at his Nkulumane residence in Bulawayo.
There have been mixed feelings concerning Chamisa’s visit to the ex-war veterans leader with some applauding the MDC-T leader while others criticised him. Chamisa reveals that he spoke to Sibanda for one and half hours were they shared their aspirations and the vision for the future and discovered that the two share the same passion for a brighter Zimbabwe. Said Chamisa:
From the Joshua Nkomo museum, I went to Nkulumane to meet with another distinguished son and war veteran—Jabulani Sibanda.
For one and half hours while at his home, we shared our aspirations and the vision for the future of the country that both of us so much love. At the end, we discovered we shared the same passion for a future with multiple possibilities for the people of Zimbabwe.
This April being the independence month for us as a party and as a leadership, I discovered that there was more that united us; that we had the same unstinting affinity for our country and its people.
I discovered we suckled from the same breast of patriotism and soon.
Thanks brother Jabu for the great conversation as we prepare to step hand in hand into the new Zimbabwe that is coming in a few months time.
I also noted that there have been outright distortions, lies and spin around my visit to the Joshua Nkomo museum and my meeting with Jabulani. Yet lies have temporary legs and the truth shall be revealed in the fullness of time.
