Addressing former freedom fighters at the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association Bulawayo offices yesterday, the association’s secretary general Victor Matemadanda praised President Mnangagwa’s new cabinet appointments.
Matemadanda urged war veterans to support Mnangagwa’s new ministers but said they must not do so blindly. Said Matemadanda:
Let us support our President, let’s support his ministers because some people are going to use you to complain about the people he appointed as ministers. Who thought that Kirsty Coventry would be appointed a Minister? Mthuli (Ncube) has been appointed. Let us support the President, let us support every initiative but I’m not saying we must do it blindly.
