Harare – Zimbabwean War veterans have reportedly told President Robert Mugabe to ditch the Generation 40 (G40), which is largely believed to be allied to his wife Grace, if he wants to work with them again. 

According to NewsDay, the war veterans' chairperson, Christopher Mutsvangwa said that they would only start working with Mugabe again if he ditched the G40 group.

The war veterans made a significant break with Mugabe in July for the first time, calling him dictatorial, manipulative and egocentric.
