Zimbabwe’s War Veterans Hail Army’s Actions



THE Zimbabwe army’s takeover of the state broadcaster and action against some members of President Robert Mugabe’s government has been praised by the chairman of the Liberation War Veterans’ Association.

Chris Mutsvangwa, head of the war veterans’ group issued a statement from Johannesburg praising Constantino Chiwenga, the Army general, for carrying out “a bloodless correction of gross abuse of power.” The statement said the army will return Zimbabwe to “genuine democracy.”

Mutsvangwa and the war veterans’ group are staunch allies of Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was fired from his post of vice president by Mugabe last week.
