While addressing Zanu-PF supporters at Cheziya Community Hall at Gokwe Centre yesterday, Zanu-PF secretary for War Veterans Victor Matemadanda said President Mnangagwa is a leader unlike his predecessor Robert Mugabe who was a ruler like Rhodesian leader Ian Smith.
Matemadanda said Mnangagwa is a team leader. Said Matemadanda:
There is a difference between a ruler and a leader. Since the Ian Smith regime until the end of the Mugabe regime, Zimbabwe was under a ruler.
