The Zanu-PF Youth League has been criticised by party leadership following utterances by the organ’s deputy secretary Mr Kudzanai Chipanga that the wing was ready to fight veterans of the liberation struggle, as well as staging a demonstration against state owned newsnewspapers.

Mr Chipanga told some youths that they should get ready for war against war veterans whom he said were fewer than the youths whom he said constituted 65 percent of the population.

He also claimed that war veterans were suffering from sugar diabetes, and as such, would not last a protracted confrontation.
