Mugabe Risks Prompting War Veterans To Spill His Dirty Secrets

 Mugabe Risks Prompting War Veterans To Spill His Dirty Secrets

GOVERNMENT has threatened to fish out and crack down on all those behind the widely covered war veterans statement calling on Mugabe to resign.
“Government, therefore, dismisses the said traitorous so-called communiqué which is treasonable in the constitutional democracy that Zimbabwe is, with utter disdain and all the contempt that it deserves,” said secretary for the War Veterans ministry Brigadier-General (Retired) Walter Tapfumaneyi.
“While multi-agency investigations are underway to establish its origins, authorship, ownership and purpose which will bring all associated with it to justice, the ministry urges all patriotic veterans of the liberation struggle to remain loyal to His Excellency the President and to the party, to remain disciplined and principled while at the same time being wary of the divisive machinations of Zimbabwe’s detractors.”
Loyalty is a double-edged sword that cuts both ways; Mugabe cannot expect anyone, especially these rogue war veterans who have already betrayed the people by teaming up with him to impose this corrupt and tyrannical regime, to remain loyal to him when he has not been loyal to them. The root cause of this dog-eat-dog fight within Zanu PF itself and between Mugabe and the war veterans is that they are poor and hungry. They are sick and tired of waiting for him to throw crumbs from his table at them.
The war vets have betrayed the people, denying them their freedoms and rights, including the right to free, fair and credible elections, to ensure Mugabe and Zanu PF remain in power all these years. Talk of blind loyalty!
Mugabe has promised them a good life, but has never honoured his promise. When they recently tried to demand better welfare and to discuss pressing national political and economic issues, he teargassed the lot. How is that for repaying someone for decades of blind loyalty.
Now that the war veterans know Mugabe has declared war on them they know this is going to be a bitter fight to the finish; no-holds-barred battle.
The regime cannot charge any of these “rogue” war veterans with “treason and trying to remove a democratically-elected government” because these men and women were its storm-troopers who carried out its order to cheat, harass, beat, rape and even kill to impose Mugabe’s no-regime-change mantra. 
One cannot steal elections, harass and kill political opponents and terrorise voters at large and still claim to have been “democratically-elected” — it is an oxymoron.
Mugabe is the one who granted the rogue war veterans carte blanche to ruthlessly deny the people their freedoms and rights, including committing murder. If Mugabe arrests any of the war veterans for demanding that he resigns, they will hit back by revealing the details showing how they helped him terrorise the opposition and rig elections.
 No one can ever be guilty of “trying to remove a democratically-elected government” if it can be shown that the same said government was in fact never democratically-elected in the first place.
