Borrowdale - Zimbabwe war veterans leader Chris Mutsvangwa has just thrown down the gauntlet at embattled Zimbabwe leader Robert Mugabe.

Addressing over 20 000 people, Mutsvangwa has told the crowd to go to Mugabe’s $10million palatial palace in Borrowdale and “ claim back their country”

“I don't care how long it will take us to get there but let’s go chase him out,” he thundered. 

The restive crowd has started making their way to Borrowdale where the Zimbabwe leader has been holed up with his wife Grace, two prominent members of his cabinet Professor Jonathan Moyo and Savious Kasukuwere since the military took control of the country.

Joined by former vice President Joice Mujuru, #This flag leader Pastor Evan Mawarire, the crowd has started heading for Mugabe’s home in a situation that may end very badly for the First Family. It is unclear whether or not the army will allow them to enter the forbidden palace.

However judging by the way today has unfolded, the military may again decide to give the people access to the President’s home.
