Speaking to journalists, Zimbabwe National Liberation War veterans Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya said:
It is the war veterans that have benefitted, being recognised by the region.
Never ever at any point has the opposition been recognised in the southern region or accorded or given such a post.
This is a milestone, this is an achievement for the people of Zimbabwe and even journalists must applaud that.
So we are organising a big event for that and all war veterans are coming to support the President…
The announcement comes after the ZANU PF youth league also announced that they will be holding a party for Mnangagwa.
