ED Pfee: War veterans throw weight behind Mnangagwa for 2023 elections


The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) has added its voice in endorsing President Emmerson Mnangagwa as the party’s presidential candidate in 2023.

The national executive of the association held a meeting in Harare today ahead of the 17th Zanu PF annual people’s conference where they affirmed full confidence in the leadership of their patron, President Mnangagwa and commended the work being done by the presidium.

ZNLWVA Secretary General, who is also the Deputy Minister of Defence and War Veterans Welfare, Cde Victor Matemadanda told a media briefing this Tuesday that the war veterans association distances itself from a section of war veterans who are working against the values of the party.

He also said the war veterans association are going to lobby for a constitutional amendment to raise the presidential age limit from 40 to 52 years to ensure anyone who contests for the presidency is mature enough to shoulder the responsibilities.
