Govt fo­cused on car­ry­ing out its work

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — It is a mis­in­ter­pre­ta­tion of re­al­ity to say that war vet­er­ans have united with op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal par­ties in fight­ing against Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe’s rule.

That as­sump­tion is be­ing made by false alarmists who want to cause alarm and de­spon­dency in the coun­try.

It is not true to say war vet­er­ans threw their weight en masse be­hind these new so­cial move­ments. Only a few in­di­vid­u­als with their own agen­das have cho­sen to side with them.

We should all rally be­hind the Pres­i­dent for try­ing to im­prove the lives of the former free­dom fight­ers. Those who used op­por­tu­ni­ties fully are do­ing well in life.

We should also take into cog­ni­sance that be­yond war vet­er­ans are the masses who also need a piece of the same cake.

There­fore, in their de­mands war vet­er­ans should think of oth­ers, not to be self­ish and con­sider the state of the econ­omy, oth­er­wise they might be re­ferred to as in­con­sid­er­ate.

In fact the war vet­er­ans should ap­pre­ci­ate what Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe and the Gov­ern­ment have done and still con­tinue to be do­ing.

The new so­cial me­dia ac­tivists need to be told that Zim­bab­weans are peace lov­ing peo­ple who need to be re­spected.

The Pres­i­dent and his Gov­ern­ment are fo­cused on ful­fill­ing a man­date that they were given when elected in July 2013.

De­trac­tors will not de­ter the Gov­ern­ment from car­ry­ing out its work. Ste­wart Murewa Harare
