Updated Gvt must listen to the people : War Vets…


… as War vets back protests

The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) has said that it is backing the planned stay away slated for tomorrow.

Several movements have been pushing for Zimbabweans to stay away from work tomorrow to protest the worsening situation in the country.

The country yesterday witnessed protests  in Epworth, Ruwa and Mabvuku as touts clashed with police, while cross border traders staged their own violent protests in Beitbridge on Friday.

Addressing journalists at a press conference in Harare today, ZNLWVA National spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said that society knows how to solve its problems as was the case during the liberation struggle.



“Zimbabweans know how to solve their problems, let them do what they think will proffer solutions to their problems,” he said.

Mahiya added that the government must let people air their grievances.

“As the War Veterans we say if government does not react to public demands, let us go back to the beginning.

“The society has solutions to its problems and they have to continue what they are doing until they get what they want,” said Mahiya.

Mahiya also urged the government to listen to its people, saying this was the only way to end the recent wave of protests.

However, the War Vets Spokesperson called on citizens to protest peacefully to avoid destroying other people’s properties.

“We therefore urge every citizen to demonstrate peacefully without damaging other citizen’s property,” he said.
