Zimbabwe war veterans leader Christopher Mutsvangwa has made an announcement indicating that his association is joining the main opposition party so to de-campaign President Robert Mugabe political organisation ahead of 2008 elections.
Mutsvangwa said this in Harare yesterday, Wednesday 13th September, when he addressed journalists.
He said they have started a campaign against Mugabe because of his association with a Zanu PF faction known as the G-40 which is fronting his wife Grace to succeed him .
“We are democrats and we are going to support any politician who is needed by the people on the ground. We are supporting anyone who is not G-40(Zanu PF) regardless of political affiliation,” said Mutsvangwa in a veiled proTsvangirai-MDC tone.
Mutsvangwa said they are uniting with all progressive forces(opposition movements) to get on the ground throughout the country and fight against Grace Mugabe led G-40 faction.
“We have an issue with the G-40, and anybody else who is progressive will get our support,”said Mutsvangwa.
He warned the pro-Zanu PF Zimbabwe electoral commission not to work for the interests of Mrs Mugabe’s faction reminding them of dire consequences if they manipulate elections like what happened in Kenya.
