The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) have said that former president Robert Mugabe must retire and avoid speaking on political matters. The former freedom fighters are still angry at Mugabe’s alleged betrayal when he said that he would not vote for President Emmerson Mnangagwa, a day before the elections. The war veterans have gone as far as writing a petition to have Mugabe’s name removed from the Robert Gabriel Mugabe international airport. Speaking to the Daily News, ZNLWVA spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said,
Congratulating … Mnangagwa was a good move but not enough. For us war veterans we think it’s irrelevant to engage him. He must just retire and keep quiet. From what he did in the past we saw that he has never been Zanu PF. He said he is supporting the MDC Alliance and by so going he is also calling for sanctions. Mugabe caused the suffering of many Zimbabweans and he has demonstrated that he is a failure.
