Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) chairpersons who spoke to The Herald said they will meet and discuss Mashonaland West’s decision to recall Christopher Mutsvangwa.
War veterans in Mashonaland West resolved to recall Mutsvangwa for sowing division and undermining their patron, President Mnangagwa. Mutsvangwa also stands accused of alienating himself from the ZNLWVA membership after being appointed President Mnangagwa’s special advisor, a post he no longer holds. War veterans in Bulawayo said the decision required a national executive meeting, while Midlands chairperson Virginia Mpaso said the province’s executive will meet on Monday to discuss the issue.
ZNLWVA Mashonaland East provincial chairman Daniel Sigauke last night said they are going to meet over Mutsvangwa’s issue. Masvingo chairman Ignatius Murindi confirmed that they would meet today (Friday) and a position would have been made by afternoon. Harare chairman, Hoyini Bhila said while the province had not yet called for a meeting, he said he agrees with Mashonaland West for recalling Mutsvangwa. The Herald could not get comments from Matabeleland North and Matabeleland South. ZNLWVA national spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said the resolution to recall Mutsvangwa remains a desire until the national executive sat and ratified it.
