‘Renegade war veterans have no say in Zanu-PF affairs’

ZIMBABWE National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) vice chairman Cde George Mlala has said Christopher Mutsvangwa and his allies are renegade freedom fighters and cannot speak on matters affecting Zanu-PF.

Cde Mlala yesterday told ex-freedom fighters who were gathered at the Zanu-PF provincial offices in Bulawayo that Mutsvangwa, Victor Matematanda, Headman Moyo and Zenzo Ncube were fired from the party for denigrating Zanu-PF’s leadership.

He said time has come for war veterans to make a decision on where they stand between the party and renegade freedom fighters.

“We agreed to introspect as an executive that was elected in Masvingo on where we stood vis-a-vis developments in the party.

“We all agreed that we are all children of the party, we were created by the party and we belong to the party Zanu-PF.

“We agreed that we work for the party and once you are fired from the party you can no longer be a representative of the party. We then identified the people who were fired from the party. These include Mutsvangwa, Headman, Matematanda, Zenzo and Nhando,” said Cde Mlala.

He said the party also expelled Douglas Mahiya but as war veterans they could not expel him because he was never an elected executive member.

He said his team has engaged the Zanu-PF leadership, including National political commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere, secretary for administration Cde Ignatius Chombo and secretary for war veterans Cde Sydney Sekeramayi, informing them that war veterans were submitting to the party’s leadership.

“From today onwards we submit ourselves to the party. We will work with the party and follow the party’s programmes. The party is supreme, our duty as party soldiers, military wing of the party, we will take instructions from the party.

“We will be given programmes by the party and we’ll execute them accordingly. We’ll not at any level or time tell the party what to do. We will implement what the party has decided,” said Cde Mlala.

Those expelled from the party, he added, cannot sanction any gathering on behalf of the association.

“Anyone who holds meetings saying he or she is a member of the Mutsvangwa-led faction should not find a space in our security system,” said Cde Mlala.

He said Zanu-PF should reclaim the war veterans’ Entumbane offices as they have been personalised by Mutsvangwa and his loyalists.

He said Mutsvangwa’s loyalists who were denigrating the First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe saying she was the leader of G40 faction in the party were actually targeting the President.

“How can one claim that they love the President when they are insulting his wife? When they say the First Lady is the leader of G40, it’s not the First Lady they are targeting but the President himself.

“They also tell the South African media that they have their presidential candidate for the 2018 elections who is a leader in the party. Isn’t that a coup? We want the leader who is loyal to the party to distance himself from them,” said Cde Mlala.

  • Grace for VP / ED to Chairman

    If you are not 100% loyal to the One Centre of Power, you expell yourself from ZANU-PF.

  • Mthwakazi

    They are renegades only to you, Mugabe and ZANU PF because they disagree with the president? Their leadership was certified by the courts and you can’t wish them away. The next congress to elect a new executive is in 2019. You are screwed!!!

      Another idiot in the making ….. poor reasoning capacity , shame.

      Good point.

      • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

        Wow. You are so out of touch.

  • msongelwa

    Uzamukuzisikela kwenonileyo Mlala, that’s the problem engulfing our country once you criticise Mgabe u are deemed a renegade, everything is written on the wall that Mgabe is corrupt and had failed to transform people’s lives as we don’t have medical facilities and schools in rural areas, abantu kabazinuke amakwapha wabo kuqala ngoba abantu babuhlungu ngendlela abaholwa ngayo yilombutho osembusweni.

    • MakhosiXamu

      Mugabe is corrupt ?. maybe you are big fool who loves Pink thugs …. The Brishity. A slave madoda…kikikikiiiiiiiii.

      • Mthwakazi

        Yindaba uthanda ukuphendulela abantu ongabaziyo njengo mpentsho kanyoko.

  • Gen Gowon

    It’s very unfortunate that book licking reaches such frightening levels.It has gone to an extent of trampling rights of individual war veterans enshrined in the Constitution.Demand of accountability from political leadership either at local or national levels of governance requires critical censure and is quite in order. Labelling individual members or groups of society as renegades is disproportionately dishonest and anti constitutional behaviour.

    • N. Sithole

      These guys are on a mission to outdo George Orwell’s sheep in ‘Animal Farm’. Their bootlicking is nauseating. I even doubt that some of them are war veterans.

      • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

        They have no interest in personal responsibility other than as a phrase to hide their complete indifference to responsibility of any type.

    • MakhosiXamu

      Boot or Book ?. This guy is just one bad idiot, shame. No War Vet can talk ZnPF matters from outside the ruling party- Mutsvangwa and company must join Dabengwa, Muhlwa, mutasa etc. Why is mutvangwa still clinging to Zanu PF… He must form his own party , period. Constitution ?. Ulilema , mgodoyi

      • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

        Reading some of your earlier posts I had the distinct impression that you were an amusing troll.
        I now realise that you’re quite serious which in a way is even more amusing. More power to your (mad) elbow I say!

      • silungisn

        Wena …Xamu….ZANU belongs to ZANLA Forces….so be it ….not to Mugabe Family and his Relatives….Mutsvangwa belongs to that Party Xamu…..he is ZANU AND ZANU is Mutsvangwa……what is your challenge on that?…………………………….

  • Rovambira

    Such a shame that a man can utter all those words and its absolute hogwash… there is only but one God that’s what your fellow Cdes are saying Mlala.. and you can not wish away being a war veteran because you are refusing to accept abuse.. Well Done Tshinga, Well done Chris… a lot of people died so that people could have equal and free opportunities not a select few!!!

    • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

      I’m not sure what your point is here.

      • makhosi

        • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

          for not being sure of what that imbecile is talking about, surely you must be deranged.

  • Nkunzemnyama

            A woman cannot be both a prostitute and a wife. Combine this with the fact that marriage can be an important source of income for women.

  • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

    As for you have you managed to impregnate your wife or at least get someone to do it for you??

    Do admire your cunning ways of going to hospitals under the guise of invitro fertilization when in actual fact you’re just begging the shiet out of Doctors to bang your wife on your behalf.

    So what’s in those big black nuts, peanut butter or worse still umxhanxa or inopi!!
