ROBERT Mugabe’s terror group masquerading as War veterans have declared that
they will “not allow” Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC to win
harmonised elections expected later this year.
Addressing journalists at Gweru Press Club last week war veterans’ leader,
Jabulani Sibanda accused the MDC leader of betraying the liberation struggle
by calling for economic sanctions imposed by Western nations against

“You ask me what we will do in the event that MDC and Tsvangirai win
elections,” said Sibanda. “I am a revolutionary and revolutionaries do not
live by assumptions. The party must not win the elections.”

Pressed further to elaborate what he meant when he said war veterans “will
not allow any other party other than Zanu PF to win the next plebiscite”,
Sibanda said they would achieve their goal of preventing Tsvangirai from
winning without using political violence.

“War veterans do not believe in war, revolutionaries do not believe in war
but in ideas. We believe that one day ideas will overcome weapons,” he said.
“We will go out there campaigning and educating our people and come
elections day, they will know where to vote.”
Sibanda however pointed out that in any revolution, the use of arms of war
could not totally be ruled out.

“If the worst comes to the worst, our weapons will defend our ideas,” said
Sibanda, without elaborating.

Turning to corruption, Sibanda said he was opposed to the scourge adding
that Zanu PF was not corrupt but just certain individuals within the party.

War veterans have been behind Mugabe’s violent elections campaigns in
previous polls.

In 2000, they spearheaded a violent land invasion displacing hundreds of
commercial farmers and their workers resulting in food crisis in the
country. –
