War veterans in Mashonaland West province have resolved to recall Christopher Mutsvangwa, chairperson of the Zimbabwe National Liberations War Veterans Association. Mash West provincial chairperson Cornelius Muwoni confirmed the meeting and the decision made at Cooksey Hall in Chinhoyi. He spoke to Newsday and said
Yes, I can confirm that the Mashonaland West war vets provincial council recommended that Mutsvangwa is recalled from the leadership of the association with immediate effect, but I cannot give reasons at the moment. Get in touch with me tomorrow (today), and I will furnish you with all what you want.
A communique issued after the war veterans’ meeting which decided to recall Mutsvangwa read in part
At the above meeting held today at Cooksey Memorial Hall in Chinhoyi, it was resolved that Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa is recalled from the ZNLWVA national executive committee of the organisation with immediate effect. Reasons for the recall: unfaithfulness, self-centered, lack of respect to His Excellency and the Executive, creating divisions in the organisation and making utterances that brought the name of the organisation in disrepute, a thing unexpected of a member of the politburo.
- Have been fighting monopoly since 2015, we can’t have one person eating for everyone.
- Mutsvangwa no longer special advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
