Mnangagwa poll results anger war vets

HARARE - In a fresh sign that all is still not well within Zanu PF, war veterans are seething with anger over the "small margin" by which President Emmerson Mnangagwa defeated opposition leader Nelson Chamisa in last month's elections.

Cde Mnangagwa won and ZANU PF got more than 2/3 of parliamentary seats. The evil mechanitions of the Mr Mugabe and the G40 failed to derail the ZANU PF train. The war vets must sit down and relax and celebrate together with ED and the ZANU PF MPs. The war vets must stop destabilising ZANU PF. The reason ED won with a low margin was that in the Presidential election voters did not give a dem to the other 21 contestants. There was a straight fight between ED and Chamisa. In parliamentary elections, the various opposition candidates split the vote and at times ZANU PF won the seats with less than 50% of the voters. I think Mugabe's endorsement of Chamisa also cost ED a few votes in ZANU PF 's traditional Mashonaland stronghold. May be if Mugabe had not endorsed Chamisa, ED would have won with 56% of the vote.
