War Veterans in fresh plot against Mugabe
London, Oct. 28, 2017 (AltAfrika)– A faction of Zimbabwe’s ex-freedom fighters is reportedly planning a “crunch rally” in Harare next week – in what has been described as “a fresh campaign targeting President Robert Mugabe“.
NewsDay, a local tabloid reports that the rally is to “consolidate their (war veterans) position in the Zanu-PF succession conundrum and provide a clear idea of where the country is going”.
The rally is also meant to pre-empt First Lady Grace Mugabe‘s interface rally with apostolic sect members in the capital.
Reports indicate that the war veterans who used to be staunch Mugabe defenders had in recent years become his most aggressive critics.
They demanded that Mugabe cedes power to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa,
