The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWA) has disowned the group of war veterans that picketed at President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Munhumutapa offices last week. The group demanded that Mnangagwa fulfils the promises that were made to them by the government in 1997.
ZNLWA Chairperson for Matabeleland North Province Sonny Nyoni had this to say
Bonafide freedom fighters understand the protocol and in the case of last week’s incident, the manner in which the demonstration was staged shows those behind the action have no clear understanding of the ethos and values of the liberation struggle.
He said this in Kadoma where ZNLWA chairpersons from seven provinces and some national executive members met. The Kadoma meeting was attended by chairpersons from Mashonaland West, Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Bulawayo, Harare, Mashonaland East and the Midlands provinces.
