ZIPRA Labels Veterans Leader Sibanda 'Sellout'

ZIPRA alleged that Sibanda has been a money monger since the time of liberation struggle in the 1970s.

Speaking to journalists on Sunday evening in Bulawayo during ZIPRA annual general meeting, the organisation’s chairman Buster Magwizi blasted Sibanda for terrorizing  Matabeleland South villagers saying he was a sellout in even during the time of the liberation struggle.
“We have known Sibanda as a sellout, even during the time of the liberation struggle he used to do anything for money. There is a time we suspected him of having been sent by Rhodesian government when were in Angola. Now being paid by Zanu-PF to terrorise innocent villagers, “said Magwizi.
Magwzi added; “We have already disowned him from being a ZIPRA cadre because of his behaviour of terrorising innocent villagers.”
Two weeks ago Sibanda moved is terror campaign from Masvingo to Matabeleland South province where he has warned villagers to prepare for the worst in the next elections.
At one of his meetings in Chief Nhlamba’s area in Gwanda the former freedom fighter lashed out at villagers for abandoning Zanu-PF in the past election in favour of Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) formations.
Zanu -PF won two out of seven parliamentary seats in the province and Sibanda has vowed to win all seats back.
In Masvingo the self proclaimed war vet leader forced villagers to attend rallies where he threatened to murder those who do not support Robert Mugabe in elections.
Sibanda has lined up various meetings across the province and will be meeting traditional leaders, fellow war veterans and villagers.
