War Veterans: ‘Mugabe is an Ancestor, Belongs to the Dead’

Harare - War Veterans secretary general Victor Matemadanda reportedly said former President Robert Mugabe’s advanced age now made him an “ancestor” whose only suitable place was among the dead.

While speaking at a media briefing in Harare on Tuesday, Matemadanda took a swipe at MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa for allegedly jumping into bed with the country’s former leader.

This comes after Chamisa’s appeals during campaigns for the July 30 elections for Zimbabweans to embrace their former leader who had been forsaken by his former allies. 

A move which frustrated war veterans who felt Chamisa was displaying double standards by associating with Mugabe.

“Chamisa was referring to Mugabe as a monster and today, he says he is referring to him as a good old…I don’t know whether he calls him a brother.

“He (Mugabe) is not even supposed to be alive because people of his age are all dead. I don’t know whether to call him his (Chamisa) ancestor or what,” Matemadanda said. - New Zimbabwe
