ZANU PF political commissar Victor Matemadanda has warned the country’s youths to guard against being used by politicians to commit murder against their opponents, saying they will be risking torment from avenging spirits.
Matemadanda, who is also the Deputy Minister of Defence and War Veteran Affairs, was addressing students at Kwekwe Polytechnic College recently. He said:
Be wary of some veteran politicians; they will destroy you and the impact will still be felt even after we have long died.
Most of you, you don’t have money, but you have needs. Politicians can abuse you for a laptop that you will never get.
You will be told to eliminate political enemies, but you don’t ask yourselves why the politician is sending us to do their dirty bidding; where are his children!
Matemadanda castigated politicians who lose in elections but then refuse to accept defeat.
The losing politicians then turn to youths to incite them to commit acts of violence against perceived opponents, he added.
