Pressure is pilling on troubled Zanu PF political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere  with war  veterans' leaders  saying they feel vindicated in that they raised a red flag on Kasukuwere last year but ignored.

Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans' Association spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya said  they were expelled from Zanu PF  merely exposing Kasukuwere's plot to destroy the party from within by creating parallel structures.

"We had made our own analysis that Kasukuwere, then, did not qualify to be the political commissar of Zanu PF and still does not, he was just after destroying the party and building his own presidential ambitions. The things that are being demonstrated against him today we had already seen them," he quoted by NewsDay.

Last year, war veterans laid siege on Kasukuwere, demanding his ouster and accusing him of being a political novice.

Mahiya said the war veterans would want to see Kasukuwere's back because he remained an enemy of the people who did not understand the principles of the liberation war.

"Initially the war veterans came from the war with three things — with principles, the gun and aspect of prosperity — and it is that aspect of prosperity which has some agreement with the people and they are yet to experience that," he said.

"We will see by the action he (Mugabe) is going to take on Kasukuwere," he said.
