War veterans from Bulawayo province celebrated the Unity Day in style at their provincial headquarters at Maplanka with veteran nationalists saying the new dispensation has cemented the unity of purpose amongst Zimbabweans.

On the 22nd of December 1987, the liberation movements Zanu PF and PF Zapu represented by their principals Cde Robert Mugabe and Dr Joshua Nkomo signed the Unity Accord to form the united Zanu PF.

Guest speaker at the celebrations National Assembly member for Makokoba constituency Retired Colonel Tshinga Dube urged those attending the event to heed President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s call to let bygones be bygones.

Politburo member Cde Joshua Malinga said unity remains alive amongst Zimbabweans while veteran nationalist Gogo Jane Ngwenya says Zimbabweans are united by a sense of nationalism that goes beyond the liberation struggle.

The Unity Accord brought a fresh sense of togetherness in the country, ushering a new era of peace and tranquility ideal for national development.
