Terrence Mawawa, Masvingo Psychomotor Minister, Josaya Dunira Hungwe has said Zanu PF members and war veterans will go to war if President Robert Mugabe loses to opposition parties in the crucial 2018 elections.
Hungwe, who is the most senior party member in Masvingo Province said soldiers would be hired to campaign for the ruling party ahead of the 2018 polls. Speaking at a Zanu PF inter district party meeting held at Masvingo Polytechnic last Saturday, Hungwe boasted of the orgy of violence perpetrated by state security agents against supporters of opposition parties.
Hungwe mentioned Major General Engelbert Rugeje who helped Zanu PF in the June 2008 violent campaign-saying soldiers were ready to defend Mugabe and the ruling party. In 2008 Rugeje produced a pistol and threatened to shoot supporters of the Morgan Tsvangirai led Movement For Democratic Change (MDC) party.
