The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association structures in Bulawayo Province say the inauguration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa has signaled a new chapter where the veterans of the struggle have reclaimed their social standing after years of being sidelined by the G40 cabal that they accuse of having clandestinely captured the state operations.

Veterans of the liberation struggle from Bulawayo Province have hailed the inauguration of President Mnangagwa this Friday (yesterday) as a historic event that has restored the liberation legacy that they say was seriously under threat from enemies of the revolution who had infiltrated the ruling party.

In an interview on the sidelines of a feedback meeting over the events that took place in the past week that culminated in President Mnangagwa taking over the country’s leadership, some war veterans said they have faith in the President whom they urged to weed out corruption in the country.

In his address, the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association Bulawayo provincial chairperson Cde Cephas Ncube thanked the Zimbabwe Defence Forces for their intervention and congratulated Cde Mnangagwa on his new assignment.

The war veterans’ leader said the ascendency of Cde Mnangagwa as the President of the country marks an end to the association’s leadership squabbles.
