Mutsvangwa vows to take Zanu-PF to court over war veterans' leadership

Christopher Mutsvangwa has vowed to take Defence Minister and Zanu-PF war veterans secretary, Sydney Sekeramayi to court if he goes ahead with plans to dissolve the current Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) leadership.

Said Mutsvangwa:

The ZNLWA executive will meet soon on this issue. As the law stands, (Defence minister) Sydney Sekeramayi, with his ‘ostrich head in the sand’ needs be reminded that he is outside of the law of the land, according to the Constitution of the republic. We will not hesitate to enjoin him to the existing contempt of court ruling that was already rendered by the High Court. The issue of holding an extraordinary elective congress of veterans association is not imminent and the association leadership are not cheap pushovers. Even the President knows and understands the rule of law. This association is a private organisation just like Zanu PF. It has its laws and regulations. Sekeramayi is the secretary for war veterans in the politburo, has no powers to decide over to the veterans association, but to advise. The leadership of this association will hold their congress in 2019, according to their constitution.

Addressing a rally on Saturday, Sekeramayi said Zanu-PF had agreed to dissolve the Mutsvangwa executive their expulsion from the ruling party for openly campaigning for Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa to succeed President Robert Mugabe.
