Zimbabwe war veterans turn on “dictator” Mugabe, exposing rifts (Youtube-Clip)

“Zimbabwe’s National Liberation War Veterans’ Association has denounced President Robert Mugabe as dictatorial, manipulative and egocentric. It’s issued a strongly-worded statement in Harare saying it will no longer support Mugabe. The Association says the Zanu-PF leadership has failed to address the country’s mounting economic problems. The war veterans have traditionally been president Mugabe’s strongest backers.  The surprise revolt comes after a series of recent nationwide anti-government protests” (SABC Digital, 2016)
