Stanley Goreraza | I am now more convinced than ever that this country will only move forward in 30 to 40 years time when all War Veterans have been wiped out by natural death. Only when nature has deleted this entitled and parasitic group, will we stop hearing about the liberation war and the right to rule by those who fought in it. Then can Zimbabwe have a real chance and shot at prosperity and economic transformation.
War Veterans are very much the people who have looted and ruined Zimbabwe and the lives of her people. Mr Mugabe is a War Veteran right? So is Obert Mpofu and others who have been running this country. Since 1980 to this day it is War Veterans who have been in charge as the country has descended downhill for decades. In the nineties it was them who were responsible for the sudden crash of the Zimbabwean dollar after demanding to be paid for their participation in the liberation war.
Until we are free of War Veterans we will never know peace, we will never have freedom because they are always demanding something from us. If it’s not 20% of the land, it’s school fees. If it’s not this it’s that. They always have their hands out for something.
They have put it on record that they will never ever allow anyone who did not go to war to lead Zimbabwe. It’s like they fought to rule and not for freedom.
It’s almost 40 years after the war and they are still making demands. They don’t intend on handing over to the next generation, no.
So we will have to wait for God to press the delete button on them to be free of their nagging and constant irritation.
Personally I thank fallen War Veterans, who died during the war for their sacrifice which was almost in vain because of their living Comrades who became the new oppressors.
