The representative of the War Veterans Association of Zimbabwe (who happened to be the most loyal supporter of Zimbabwe’s President Mugabe) has been captured and accused of subversion, as per the orders of President Mugabe, on Thursday, July 28. Douglas Mahiya and General Secretary of the association, Victor Matemadanda was captured on the Wednesday night.
In case you are wondering, here is the quick throwback, a few days back, where President Mugabe was planning to win the upcoming election in 2018 and rule over the Zimbabwe till he died, on the other hand, Zimbabwe’s Veterans Association made a statement in which they clearly mentioned their withdrawal of backing for President Mugabe. The main reason they described in the statement was the critical condition of the economic system or a failing economy.
Veterans Association also insisted the President to resign or give them the proper answer of their inquiries. They wanted a proper solution to their problems. Later on, when the pressure on President Mugabe increases, the supporters of him came out of their homes and walked in the streets of Zimbabwe’s capital to show their immense support for him.
While addressing to them, President Mugabe clearly mentioned that the Veterans Association will be given punishment for what they did as he can’t tolerate violence in Zimbabwe at any cost.
The lawyers who declared the capture of Douglas Mahiya said his charges incorporates insulting the president publicly, however, they don’t have the foggiest idea about that of the General Secretary Victor Matemadanda.
