‘Children of war vets’ call for Kasukuwere resignation

Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere

A GROUP calling itself Children of Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (CZNLWVA) has called for the resignation of Zanu PF political commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere and other politburo members accused of fronting a ruling party faction known as Generation 40.


Addressing journalists at the War Veterans ministry’s offices yesterday, CZNLWVA said it was no longer acceptable for Kasukuwere to continue as the party’s commissar unless he apologised for making disparaging remarks against war vets.


Kasukuwere, the Local Government minister, is accused of describing war vets as taxi drivers and drunkards.
CZNLWVA chairperson, Innocent Mhlanga said Kasukuwere’s alleged remarks were a direct attack on President Robert Mugabe, as the patron of the ex-fighters.

“It is no wonder that the sixth Zanu PF people’s congress of 2014 resolved that the PC [political commissar] position should be given to a person with liberation war credentials, a war veteran, who understands the ideological principles of the party and intricacies of building and interfacing with party structures,” Mhlanga said.

The association also accused G40 of engineering the “unfair” dismissals of former Zanu PF Harare chairperson Godwills Masimirembwa, Ziyambi Ziyambi of Mashonaland West, youth leader, Godfery Tsenengamu of Mashonaland Central and attempts to fire Mashonaland East chairman Joel Biggie Matiza and Manicaland’s women’s league boss, Happiness Nyakuedzwa.

The group also said Youth and Indigenisation minister Patrick Zhuwao should be monitored on how he handles the newly-launched $10 million youth fund.

It also touched on Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo, saying he should address pressing issues facing students at tertiary institutions instead of using social media to insult other party leaders.

Last week, another Zanu PF-linked group, Zimbabwe Youth Action Platform (ZYAP), threatened to manhandle Kasukuwere, Zhuwao and Moyo if they ever set foot at the National Heroes’ Acre.

The so-called G40 is reportedly locked in a succession fight with Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Contacted for comment last night, Kasukuwere, who has repeatedly denied the existence of G40, said he was in China on government business.

Moyo and Zhuwao could not be reached for comment.


  1. Kasukuwere is just a big gay gangster. Him and Jonathaniel Manheruel are useless Zanoids hoping to succeed Matibili. No way!

  2. In 30 years’ time we will have GCZNLWVA, for the grand children of these mercenaries who are holding back progress of entire generations at ransom for fighting for freedom which hardly exists.

    • @Sagitarr. Seriously speaking these are merely one man organizations like the now forgotten Sangano Munhumutapa. Its existence ended with the demise of Warlord Chakaredza.

  3. The Rhodesian lobby has always fought against the revolution. They have now created the G40 to finish off the revolution/war veterans. After the war veterans are gone, Zimbabwe will be easy meat.

    • Not on pay dates but always at shops overseeing bases that are axtivated towards ERECTIONS. What is their purpose; no value addition to the country. They did a good job back then but are now doing themselves a disservice by being manipulated for a PENSION.

  4. I’m also going to start my own ‘Friends of War Vets’ association (FOWVA), maybe I can also get some recognition in this country

  5. @Sagitarr.sure l was also thinking of that. vafana ava vakudawo kudya zvemahara,hee hee Association and very soon they will try to claim compensation on behalf of war vets.anyway their association won’t live to the test of time.they are just day dreaming.

  6. @Sagitarr.vafana havachadi kushanda busy forming zvima Association zvisina kana basa.anyway they won’t live to the test of time.very soon they will be claiming compensation on behalf of war vets as children. kikkkkkkkkk.that is day dreaming.

  7. Off topic but help:Can I ask you fathers? What are the toll gates meant for? Our beloved friends are being sacrificed by the road which has toll gates. WHAT ARE THE TOLL GATES MEANT FOR?

    • children of war veterans again? oooh what a hell. i thought by 2025 all war veterans would be dead. we cannot recycle the same mechanisms that made us suffer for 35 years
