ZANU-PF is set to amend its constitution to create a war veterans wing, similar to the youth and women's leagues, the Daily News reported.

Speaking to journalists after yesterday's politburo meeting at the party's headquarters in Harare, Zanu-PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said they were awaiting the central committee to affirm the decision to have the war veterans league.

"We have resolved to affiliate war veterans to become a wing of the party just like the women's league and youth league. In this case, war veterans include war collaborators, war detainees and war prisoners, among others," Moyo said.

Moyo said the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) would not be dissolved.

The war veterans have been an integral part of the ruling party and have been instrumental in campaigning for the party over the years.
