Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) secretary-general and deputy minister for War Veterans, Victor Matemadanda has called on banks to give war veterans loans on favourable conditions. Addressing war veterans at Entumbane in Bulawayo on Sunday,
When we approached the funeral houses, wanting comrades to be buried, they did not want to work with us even when we have money as we are getting something from our pay, they did not want. Even banks think that giving the comrades money is risky, but give the tsotsis (fraudsters) who have stolen millions.
We are going to approach banks that want to work with us with the conditions the comrades have so that those banks will be remembered for empowering comrades. I know there are some banks which were opened by our monies and some of them have closed.
