War Veterans minister, Tshinga Dube has urged the Finance ministry to take over the payment of fees for war veterans instead of letting him deal with school heads directly. He also revealed that his ministry was dealing with unpaid medical and funeral policy bills for war veterans.
We have been getting calls nearly every day on the state of school fees from worried war veterans and schools who want their money. There is nothing much we can do except wait for Treasury to disburse the money they promised us, but unfortunately all we get are promises. It has made our work more hectic dealing with school heads and college principals. Some understand us while others just don’t especially those in private schools. It would be less hectic if the ministry of Finance just takes over that bit.
