We Are Still Waiting For Real Political, Economic Change Six Months After Mugabe: War Veterans


Members of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) have complained that they are still to experience any real change after helping in the fight to oust former President Robert Mugabe. The veterans claimed that they have been discarded by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government. Speaking to NewsDay, ZNLWVA spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said,

The ZNLWVA has noted with serious concern that hardly less than six months, the nation has forgotten the brave and unwavering battles against Mugabe and his wife (former First Lady) Grace’s [Mugabe] endeavour and restless desire to establish a dynasty.  The show is being stolen away from the war veterans… Those who were idling, bootlicking, hiding in trenches got promoted at the expense of the war veterans and the masses.

Those who were staunch supporters of G40 are now starting to congregate around the political leadership and the President, this way not much change will be realised. Political cheating, lip service to both government and the party (Zanu PF), those with political eyes can recognise the ugly face of the former. I pray to God for  new mandate of government. War veterans are waiting eagerly and expecting real change politically, economically and socially.
