War veteran, Ambassador Chris Mutsvangwa, who is also Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, has been nominated un-opposed to be the incoming national chairman of the war veterans association.

Mutsvangwa was nominated today at the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) congress underway at a hotel in Masvingo.

Also nominated un-opposed is Robert Ncube, who is the incoming national treasurer.

Eight other posts are up for grabs and these are:

Secretary General, political commissar, security, information, transport and welfare, legal affairs and women's affairs.

The war veterans will elect members for the eight posts on Sunday.

Speaking at the congress, local traditional leader, Chief Mugabe said this is a good development.

Another war veterans' member, Brigadier General Engelbert Rugeje said for the past 11 years war veterans have been short-changed by the Jabulani Sibanda administration as they have not held a congress.

He commended their patron, President Robert Mugabe who gave a directive for the holding of the congress which is underway.
