War Veterans Declare Mugabe Judas Iscariot And A Sellout
War veterans in Bulawayo yesterday slammed former President Robert Mugabe for being a sell out after aligning with the MDC Alliance in the harmonised elections.
Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) Bulawayo province treasurer Lazarus Nyoni compared Mugabe to the biblical Judas Iscariot for going to bed with the opposition.
Nyoni was addressing mourners during the burial of liberation war heroine Ketty Dube at the Provincial Heroes’ Acre in Nkulumane, Bulawayo.
Mugabe on Sunday last week said he would vote for the opposition MDC Alliance in the just ended harmonised elections.
“The highest level of deception is when a once respected liberation war fighter comes out and announces that he is voting for the MDC Alliance, the same party he used to chant slogans against.
“Our own people used to hear stories of Judas Iscariot’s betrayal and they thought it’s a fairy tale but just some hours before voting they saw a carbon copy of Iscariot,’’ he said.
Nyoni said Mugabe spent decades denouncing the MDC but in a split second they have become strange bed fellows.
The war veterans warned the youths against following the footsteps of “such sellouts’’ just because of money.
