We will salute Chamisa
Contrary to past rumours, war veterans have followed the military by pledging that they will not block the way for opposition leader Nelson Chamisa if he defeats President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the crunch July 30 polls.
The development come at a time the run-up to the polls has been infested with threats, alarm and despondency that could compromise the credibility of election outcomes.
“As war veterans, we believe in the voice of the people, that only the people through an election will decide the country’s leadership and that their decision must be respected by all.
“And so, the Constitution will dictate what happens after these elections”, Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA), Christopher Mutsvangwa said.
It is reported that Mutsvangwa made these remarks after he had been referenced on micro-blogging site Twitter, where an apparently fake account using his name alleged falsely and outrageously said that war veterans would not accept an opposition victory in the much-anticipated polls.
The polls will be the first ever since Zimbabwe’s independence from Britain in 1980 not to feature former president Robert Mugabe, who resigned from office last November after Parliament had started damaging proceedings to impeach him.
