Liberation War Veterans have called each other to action to mobilise two million votes for Zanu PF and President Emmerson Mnangagwa for the 2023 election.
Addressing Zanu PF supporters and war veterans in Gwanda over the weekend, Zanu PF secretary for war veterans, Douglas Mahiya, said the war veterans owe Mnangagwa for taking care of them and so must go out and get the votes for him.
“We have been recalled back to the party. The enemy was taking advantage of our absence on the main political platform for over 40 years to defend our side,” Mahiya said.
“We urge all war veterans to join the war veterans wing in order for us to win the 2023 elections. The department will look into the welfare of civil servants,” he added.
War veterans are known for engaging a violent election campaign for ZANU PF in the 2000 and 2005 elections.
The war veterans also led the chaotic land grab from white commercial farmers throughout the country.
