The war veterans have petitioned President Emmerson Mnangagwa to fire former cabinet ministers who have been redeployed to head Zanu-PF departments. The deployments were made to ensure that Zanu-PF becomes supreme to government and directs its policies. However, the war veterans want Obert Mpofu (Administration), Patrick Chinamasa (Finance), Sidney Sekeramayi and David Parirenyatwa (Health) as well as Zanu PF politburo administrator Dickson Dzora to be fired alleging that they cannot be trusted as they are counterrevolutionary.
In a letter signed by 10 provincial chairpersons, the war veterans say,
Obert Mpofu needs to clear corruption allegations levelled against him…These elements are known for factionalism and cannot be entrusted with such a responsibility (to run the party).
Our President’s vision of a new corruption-free dispensation, sanity and economic turnaround cannot be realised as long as counterrevolutionaries are operational within the party system…More critically no restructuring is possible with G40 in charge at headquarters.
