Mugabe behind violent Harare protest

War veterans have accused ex President Robert Mugabe for allegedly having a hand in the violence that shook Harare on Wednesday, where soldiers allegedly opened live ammunition on opposition protestors and killed six, leaving others injured.

Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson Douglas Mahiya claimed yesterday that Mugabe could have funded the protests to cause anarchy in the country.

“The alliance forged between bitter Advocate Chamisa and bitter former President Robert Mugabe is worrying as we feel it is a recipe for violence,” he said.

“We cannot rule out the involvement of Selous Scouts in the protests. Up until Mugabe’s latest emergence on the political scene, there was no violence. It seems to us that the objective is to reverse the gains of the new dispensation and block any other candidate other than Chamisa who would advance the Mugabe agenda.”

Mahiya said Mugabe had spoiled his his legacy and should not be considered for national hero status however he condemned the killing of civilians by the army.
