    We are sorry, ZANU PF used us – Mavhaire

    – ZPF elder Dzikamai Mavhaire has said that he and his colleagues who have now formed ZPF are sorry about their history in the ruling party and added that he now realises that they were just being used by President Mugabe.
    Mavhaire, a former senior Zanu PF Politburo member said this when he addressed over 200 people gathered at Mucheke Hall in Masvingo where ZPF held its first public meeting in the city.
    He described Zanu PF as a cruel party that did not only kill to win elections but has been rigging elections in order to retain power.
    Mavhaire said he and his new team in ZPF had never been willing members of Zanu PF because of that party's cruelty and added that it is those who have remained in Zanu PF who are the actual architects of the violence that had rocked the country since 1999 when MDC T was formed.
    He said Zanu PF assigned senior party members to go and unleash violence in areas where people had turned away from the ruling party to join the opposition MDC T.
    "We were just being used, we are sorry about what Zanu PF has done to the people. We were sent out to unleash violence against the people. I never killed but I know of people in the party that I was with who killed people," said Mavhaire.
    ZPF provincial war veterans co-ordinator, Brian Badza who also attended the meeting sang praises for Tsvangirai. He told the meeting that Tsvangirai was a real comrade, a champion of the people's rights and there was no one who can stand an election and win against the MDC T leader.
    Badza said Tsvangirai won two clear elections against President Mugabe but President Mugabe did not accept the results on the guise that to do so was to give the country back to the whites.
    He said he saw his fellow comrades kill people during election violence.
    "Let it be known that Zanu PF, my former party are masters of rigging. I did not kill anyone but I witnessed incidences where my comrades were involved in barbaric violence and killings. In 2008 Zanu PF lost and stole the vote. Mugabe knows very well that he cannot stand an election against Tsvangirai," said Badza.
    Badza who was close to tears during the address told the gathering that there was no need to blame sanctions for the poor state of the economy. He said Zanu PF policies were there to blame.
    He bemoaned the closure of the Cold Storage Commission which was one of the biggest industries and employers in Masvingo.
    He also decried the high rate of unemployment in the country.local news
