True war vet­er­ans re­main loyal to Pres­i­dent, Zanu-PF

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Leader & Comment -

EDITOR — As war vet­er­ans, we are sure of what we want and it’s the au­then­tic lead­er­ship that Zanu-PF has mas­tered over the years.

Our loyalty to Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe can­not be moved, how­ever the cir­cum­stances.

What Re­tired Colonel Tshinga Dube says is true, we sup­port our God-given Pres­i­dent.

Rogue el­e­ments should be warned and know that what­ever their at­tempts, 10 Zanu-PF prov­inces in this coun­try have en­dorsed Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe as our can­di­date and we are happy with that.

Any­one who fought the lib­er­a­tion strug­gle in the early 1960s knows that the code has al­ways been that the party is supreme, the party com­mands the gun, it’s not the gun that com­mands the party and there is no rea­son for any gen­uine war vet­eran to be against His Ex­cel­lency.

Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe is our fig­ure head and as chil­dren we would al­ways come back to him for guid­ance. He is the sole cen­tre of power in the coun­try and party.

One per­son can­not speak for all of us as it has been proven over and over again by Christo­pher Mutsvangwa’s mis­placed out­bursts.

He is en­ti­tled to his opin­ion, but that should not be in­ter­preted as a blan­ket opin­ion rep­re­sent­ing all of us. Many of us war vet­er­ans are loyal to the Pres­i­dent and we shall con­tinue to be. As war vet­er­ans, we want to send a clear mes­sage to any doubt­ing Thomas spec­u­lat­ing on who would be the party’s can­di­date in 2018.

We know there are prophets of doom who are talk­ing about suc­ces­sion and spec­u­lat­ing on the party’s can­di­da­ture, de­spite the fact that we have been clear and al­ready en­dorsed our can­di­date as Zanu-PF.

Op­po­si­tion per­son­al­i­ties should stop try­ing to play ref­eree in Zanu-PF’s af­fairs and fo­cus on their medi­ocre po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

Cde Nyahuma, Kwekwe.

Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe
