Government says it is putting in place measures to ensure that those who participated in the liberation war are afforded the proper recognition and benefits.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Welfare Services for War Veterans, War Collaborators, ex-Political Detainees and Restrictees Retired Brigadier-General Walter Tapfumaneyi who was addressing members of the Zimbabwe National Liberation Association of War Veteran Cadres in Harare this Thursday underscored governments commitment to ensure that those who brought about the country’s independence are rewarded.

The association’s cause has received a sympathetic ear from the revolutionary party, Zanu PF says the party’s director of veterans of the liberation struggle, Cde Ezekiel Zabanyana.

The Zimbabwe National Liberation Association of War Veteran Cadres says it remains committed to the ideals that Zanu PF stands for, particularly in ensuring that the previously marginalised black majority become part of the mainstream economy.

The war of liberation was won after a protracted struggle through the concerted efforts of Zimbabweans who contributed to the attainment of independence in 1980.
