Information minister Simon Khaya-Moyo has urged the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) to engage President Emmerson Mnangagwa directly on matters on his security. This comes after the war veterans denounced Mnangagwa’s security team and said that they should take over his protection following the Bulawayo explosion. Speaking to the Daily News, Khaya Moyo said,
Government will not go that route because there is protocol regarding security issues and besides that, the president is the war veterans patron so they have direct access to him so they can make that request directly to him,” he said, adding that “it is not under my purview hence I have not heard anything to that effect”.
