ED: War Vets & Collaborators Should Forsake Welfare-oriented Mindset

President Emmerson Mnangagwa said members of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWA) and the Zimbabwe Liberation and War Collaborators Association (ZILIWACO) should not expect any more freebies from the government.

Mnangagwa said this while addressing the media before the 335th ordinary session of the Politburo on Wednesday that marked the beginning of Zanu PF’s Annual Conference currently underway in Goromonzi. He said:

This past weekend, I had occasion to address a Zimbabwe Liberation and War Collaborators Association (Ziliwaco) meeting at the City Sports Centre here in Harare and I congratulate the leadership for a successful event.

Various issues were raised which affect that constituency of our party and we will do our best to address the matters which they raised.

However, we appeal to the association to shift their paradigm from a welfare-oriented mindset to that which has a membership primed at working hard using our God-given resources.
