Green Bombers, war vets children threaten Chipanga…link him to People First

Youths aligned to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Team Lacoste have blasted the party’ secretary for Youth Kudzanai Chipanga for threatening war veterans.
Zanu PF is currently in a nasty battle to succeed the 92 year old Robert Mugabe and two groups have emerged in race to succeed leader.
Chipanga who is believed to be aligned to the G40 faction in the past week made statements to the effect that ‘youths would deal with war veterans’ who wanted to demonstrate against the removal of their leader Christopher Mutsvangwa.
Mutsvangwa recently won a court battle in which the High court ordered Mandy Chimene who is linked to G40 to stop interfering with the organisation’s business.
Speaking in a press held at the ZANU PF headquarters a group of National Youth Service popularly known as the Green Bombers vowed to deal with the Chipanga claiming he was a murderer.
“How crooks in the likes of Chipanga Kudzanai who had the blood of a war veteran in his hands, whom he killed with his thugs can only this day work up and say he is defending the First Family” said the National Youth Service Abson Madusise Secretary General.
Madusise further said Chipanga derived his morals from the former Zanu PF Secretary for Admnistration Didymus Mutasa.
“Where are his morals derived from when his mentor Didymus Mutasa who have the blood of many in his hands, whom we know of his violent nature has a natural hatred of our symbolic leader Cde Robert Mugabe” he said.
The National Youth Service Commander Kelvin Murapa said as an organisation they did not trust him.
“Whilst Didymus Mutasa is with the People First Project how do we trust Kudzi Chipanga who is an admirer of his mentor who beneficiated him with a house located at house at number 135 Nyanga Drive in Rusape be of good standing standing to defend our most revered liberator.” said the former commander of once violent group.
“It has come to our attention that they should stop forthwith to masquerade as spokespersons and defenders of the First Family when in actual fact Kudzanai Chipanga a defacto Chairman of the so called People First Youth League and Innocent Hamandishe as its Secretary for Administration”
Hamandishe said Chipanga wanted to revenge what was done to Mai Mujuru.
“Their hatred for the war veterans is well documented on the wall for everyone to see. Their hatred is compounded by what they perceive as the role war veterans played I the ouster of Joice Mujuru from Zanu PF” they said.
Another group known as the Children of Zimbabwe Liberation War Veterans Association led by Innocent Mhlanga advised Chipanga to read ZIMASSET instead of attacking war veterans.
“We advise Chipanga that he could have spent such valuable time reading and understanding ZIMASSET and perhaps helps in its implementation than threatening war veterans” said Mhlanga.
Efforts to get comments from Chipanga were fruitless as his phone rang unanswered.
