War veterans leader, Christopher Mutsvangwa has disowned a Twitter handle registered in his name saying he never had an account on the microblogging site.
He speaks when the handle in his name has been used to exchange insults with fellow ZANU PF official, Victor Matemadanda. Mutsvangwa said:
I do not have a Twitter account now and never had one. The Twitter account bearing my name and my picture is a creation of G40 Jonathan Moyo. He feels entitled to the ZANLA wing of the historical national liberation movement by hereditary writ.
He views his Christopher Mutsvangwa as his nemesis as in the November 2017 Operation Restore Legacy. This stems from my role as Chairman of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association-(ZNLWA). We spearheaded the drive to thwart his treacherous G40 antics at power grab by this traitor of long practice since he absconded from Mgagau Camp ZANLA ranks in 1975-6.
The conversation that was circulated on social media reads:
Victor Matemadanda: Joana Mamombe mwana mudiki panhau dzepolitics, dai ari munhu anofunga asiyana nazvo nekuti anofa ari mwana mudiki. Ndapedza zvangu [Joana Mamombe – MDC Alliance MP- is too young for politics, she must shun politics if she is level headed.]
@cmutsvangwa: Do you forget comrade that when we went to war as teenagers, these are some of the grievances we had against the Settler regime. Even as we rise from taxi drivers to ministers, let us spare a thought for the suffering masses!
Last year, Mutsvangwa was also forced to disown the account or another one after the handle proposed a dialogue between Nelson Chamisa and President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
