WAR veterans have claimed that President Robert Mugabe has surrounded himself with a group of liars who pretend to love him while their motives are to destroy the ruling party.
Speaking at a press conference in Harare on Tuesday, Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said the problem the country is facing is that government officials “who link people to the president are lying” to the nonagenarian in order to destroy the party from within.
“As the war veterans we say if government does not react to public demands, let us go back to the beginning.
“The society has solutions to its problems and they have to continue what they are doing until they get what they want. Zimbabweans know how to solve their problems, let them do what they think will proffer solutions to their problems,” he said.
Mahiya said the “wheels of justice” will soon catch up with corrupt officials.
“War veterans condemn all acts of corruption and lack of foresight on those that are tasked to oversee proper corporate governance in both public and private media.
“The land has become the new driver of the appetites of the corrupt and greedy and deceptive officials entrusted into positions of authority.”
The ex-combatants said Zanu PF bigwigs chased all investors away by soliciting for bribes from them on any meaningful investment.
“They wanted a slice from all who invested, we now call upon the highest office in the land to author the removal of all red tape aimed at investors. Most offices entrusted with the licensing investors in numerous sectors have become drivers of corruption, whereas each of these offices demands a bribe for the issuance of these licences. The bureaucratic red tape should be removed.”
Mahiya added that government has destroyed the entire formal sector through corrupt activities.”
“… they have now trained their sights on our land which they are selling to unassuming citizens who don’t even have the capacity to build a decent habitat for themselves.
“After lining their pockets with money from poor citizens, they facilitate their evictions and demolition of their structures on the guise that the structures were built without following local government processes.
“The destructions and evictions will destroy any evidence of their atrocities, however, the wheels of justice will catch up with all of them.” daily news
