War Veterans Regain Ground In ZANU PF Main Wing Structures
The ZANU PF Commissariat Department has written a circular directing its structures countrywide to incorporate war veterans into influential positions as part of implementing the resolutions of its 2017 extra-ordinary congress.
This directive is argued to be in line with the December 2017 Zanu PF extraordinary congress which resolved that war veterans be elevated both within the party and government.
Part of the commissariat circular reads:
Pursuant to this resolution, you are by way of this circular directed to ensure that war veterans are incorporated into the main wing party structures from cell to provincial level in view of the restructuring exercise.
In this regard, war veterans should be considered for the post of chairperson and vice chairperson in the event that if a chairperson is non-war veteran, then the deputy should be a war veteran or vice versa. “The same should happen to political commissar and deputy political commissar.

The posts of political commissar and deputy political commissar from cell to provincial levels should preferably be filled by war veterans.
Relations between the party and the war veterans have been deteriorating particularly towards the end of the tenure of the former president.
Some war veterans have however been given top posts in ZANU PF and the government.
