Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ON this He­roes’ Day, we say re­flect on the cost of our hard-won In­de­pen­dence. We salute the lib­er­a­tion fighters, liv­ing and de­parted, whose sac­ri­fices made Zim­babwe pos­si­ble. We hon­our the masses whose sup­port made vic­tory cer­tain; they are wa­ter in which the guer­ril­las swam as Chair­man Mao taught. We thank God for bless­ing us with this side of par­adise. We re­mind re­ac­tionar­ies and im­pe­ri­al­ist prox­ies that they be­long to his­tory’s dust­bins. We strengthen the pa­tri­otic and tal­ented youths who will make this na­tion great. — Tafadzwa Hungwe. THE Mighty War­riors might have dropped cru­cial points al­ready but their rep­re­sen­ta­tion of Zim­babwe at the global arena de­serves ap­plause. They are giv­ing us the best un­der the cir­cum­stance and the onus is on Zifa to in­vest more into the de­vel­op­ment of this sport. Right now, it seems the girl child is side­lined by Zifa in favour of the men’s team. I would like to wish the team and their tech­ni­cal depart­ment all the best. — Baba Gari, Harare.
