‘Matemadanda speaks nonsense and is a fraud,’ says Jabulani Sibanda
War veterans secretary-general Victor Matemadanda on Tuesday attacked the two accusing them of vilifying the two newly-appointed vice-presidents.
But Dabengwa and Sibanda said Matemadanda a Zanu-PF central committee member is a fraud who spoke nonsense, after attacking the two while addressing war veterans in Zvishavane.
“Topical issues are what we have been hearing from opposition newspapers castigating VP Mphoko; that is Dabengwa and others,” Matemadanda was quoted as saying.
“Some are saying VP Mnangagwa cannot hold this office because he was Security minister.
“They seem not to know that a minister cannot have an individual authority to decide on ministerial issues.” But Dabengwa declined to respond saying he was not Matemadanda’s peer and would not respond to him.
Matemadanda also attacked Sibanda, saying he had misled people when he said they would march to State House to seek audience with Mugabe. He said Sibanda took advantage of civilians’ ignorance and misled them about the march, which he described as blasphemy.
Sibanda like Dabengwa also refused to be drawn into a war of words with Matemadanda.
