Mugabe Is A Sellout, His “Dirty Name” Must Be Removed From RGM International Airport – War Veterans


The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) has called for the renaming of the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport after denouncing the former president as a traitor. The war veterans denounced Mugabe and his wife, former first lady Grace Mugabe for allegedly working with opposition leaders Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti to cause chaos in the country. The former freedom fighters said they would rather have the airport named after late hero Herbert Chitepo. Speaking at a press conference, ZNLWVA secretary-general Victor Matemadanda said

We are going to demand the removal of Robert Mugabe’s name from the international airport in Harare. Tomorrow we are going to Harare international airport to demand the removal of Mugabe’s dirty name. Mugabe has failed. We cannot have the face of Zimbabwe to the world – given the name of a last minute traitor. We don’t want.

…Handing over petition so that Mugabe’s name is removed at the airport with immediate effect. He does not deserve such an honour as he has taken a betrayal stance…He has strayed and chose an unholy matrimony with MDC. Tomorrow we are going to Harare International Airport not Robert Mugabe to demand the removal of that name because Mugabe is a last-minute traitor. We want names of our heroes, not sellouts…The name Robert Gabriel Mugabe will be remembered for a leader who gave up his flock to raveners

The airport was renamed last November after then Zanu-PF youth secretary Kudzanai Chipanga threatened not to invite ministers to the 2018 edition of the 21st February Movement celebrations if the Airport was not renamed. A few weeks after the renaming ceremony Mugabe lost power after the Zimbabwe Defence Forces launched Operation Restore Legacy.

  1. Now that Matemadanda is supposed to be an Honourable MP, its high time you show respect to the old man. Remember RGM’s policies produced massive positive results but had poor finishing, do not insult elders Mr Mujibha or taxi driver during your days in Lusaka. concentrate your enegies towards Gokwe Centre

  2. It is customary to bestow such honours on people that would have lived their lives and died with honour. Naming streets and national institutions after a living person is ill-advised for this very reason where we find we do not believe the honoured person remained honourable throughout.

  3. War Veterans aren’t helping the nation IMO. If Mugabe helped Chamisa to have the truth come out, what wrong is in that? Kwavo kuda kungot ZANU PF ingoramba ichitonga even if there is something amiss? Ngavatibatsirewo nekuve non-partisan and stand on the side that’s right. I think this is what we need as general Zimbabwean citizens, to call our wrong as it is, to give other people a chance to exercise their right, respect all and become non-partisan in our conduct.

  4. Mxxm, e airport is ok with that name.. He is a sellout to you now selikhohlwa ukuthi belisidlla kuye. RG is my hero long live Bob.

  5. Iiii ngativaregei sekuru. Ngatirangarirei pressure yavaopiwa nemukadzi wavo ivo vakwegura. Ngatirangarirei ma challenges anowanikwa nevakwegura kuti mafungiro nematiro osiyana nepavaive vachinzwa. Please i pray.Let the old man be. Tinavowo wani vakwegura mudzimba.Vanonetsawo sei?asi hativarase. Please ngatiregei kuzvikokera zvituko nekuda kwekushatirwa kwedu.

  6. I would be greatfull if Robert Mugabe’s name is removed as soon as possible as it only hold a very bad memories on all Zimbabweans. A dictator who only brought corruption, poverty, starvation, tribalism and small house in our beautiful country
