Chiwenga causes a stir in Parliament


HON. ZINDI: Thank you Mr. Speaker Sir. My supplementary question to our Vice President is to do with the pension or welfare of war veterans. With all due respect, I appreciate his response that the country does not have the financial capacity to make sure that war veterans have been rewarded for the task they undertook to liberate this country. With all due respect, we have seen chiefs being given vehicles…

THE HON. SPEAKER : Order, order. Hon. Member, can you ask a straight forward supplementary question.

HON. ZINDI : Yes, the question then is, can those plans also be put in place in order to make sure that war veterans’ welfare is also given a priority. I thank you.

HON. RTD. GEN. DR. CHIWENGA : I repeat again – not only to the Hon Member who has asked the question, but to all Members of Parliament; the matter for war veterans and all pensioners in this country is receiving the attention it deserves. I thank you.
