Secretary general of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) Victor Matemadanda said Zimbabwe’s current problems are a result of former President Robert Mugabe’s rule.
He said Mugabe should be grateful Mnangagwa did not resort to revenge or violence when he came into power. Matemadanda was responding to Mugabe’s latest statements in which he criticised Mnangagwa of killing civilians. Said Matemadanda:
Many people expected Mnangagwa not only to harass him but at least some measure to put Mugabe to order because he did not only kill people but destroyed this economy. These problems that we have are a result of Mugabe’s rule, even the sanctions; he had fun travelling and insulting people like a crazy person. Africa treated him like its crazy person and clapped hands for him. Now we have all these problems, yet he wants to act like a messiah.
