War veterans call for breaking up of ministry saying it has failed

Posted by Tayana

The Christopher Mutsvangwa-led Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) has called for the disbandment of War Veterans’ ministry because it has failed to serve the interests of its constituents and society in general.

ZNLWVA spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya accused Tshinga Dube of failing dismally to run the ministry. He said,

The ministry is not necessary, as it has neither spoken in defence of its constituency. The ZNLWVA and its membership condemn in no uncertain terms the evil in the ministry’s efforts to undermine a legitimate leadership of liberators of this country. It’s shameless and hypocritical behaviour that after a published letter in which the minister denied any involvement in the affairs of the association still commits itself to ignore the provisions of the Zimbabwe Constitution and that of the war veterans’ association.

ZNLWVA secretary-general, Victor Matemadanda also claimed that the ministry was manned by people, who were ignorant of their mandate.

That ministry should just be disbanded. They have failed on their duties. For example, we still have war collaborators, who are supposed to be vetted, but instead of concentrating on that they worried about plundering the few dollars the ministry has on accumulating hotel bills and paying allowances for a few.
