Acting President Phelekezela Mphoko (pictured) says war veterans are a product of Zanu PF and must stand guided by the party constitution and principles at all times.
Addressing the Matabeleland North Zanu PF Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting in Lupane, Mphoko said the Matemadanda group of war veterans is a misguided group that is working against the party implementing a document titled: ‘Blue Ocean Document’ whose thrust is to destroy the party leaders for them to impose their own leadership.
Mphoko said the group is using the so-called report back meetings following President Robert Mugabe’s meeting with war veterans to try to damage the character of some senior party leaders, including himself.
He warned war veterans to be wary of these treasonous acts which would be dealt with by responsible authorities.
He said the notion that the war veterans are the ones who ushered President Mugabe into power is not true as the President was always a leader of the party and the military wings of the liberation movements have never been bigger than the parties which mobilised them.
