War veterans in the late army commander General Solomon Mujuru’s Mashonaland East stronghold have abandoned his widow Joyce Mujuru to support her rival, vice president Emmerson Mnangagwa, Now Daily has learnt.
The veterans said the death of Gen Mujuru in a mystery fire had exposed them to attacks from members of Grace Mugabe’s G40 faction of Zanu PF.
‘We decided to rally behind Ngwena because he is the only one who can protect us. G40 is taking our farms and Mai Mujuru cannot help us,’ said a war vet in Marondera.
Joice Mujuru recently launched the Zimbabwe People First party. Several of her backers have had their farms invaded by Zanu PF militants.
