Mnangagwa says underutilized land will be re-allocated


Mnangagwa said his administration continues to accelerate the consolidation of democracy, constitutionalism and rule of law.

“My administration therefore makes no apologies for fixing our systems across the socio, economic and political spectrum. Accountability and transparency will keep on being enforced in every facet of our society. The door to the old manner of doing things is closed. The corrupt way is shut and those who choose that route will face dire consequences,” he said.

He appealed to all Zimbabweans to remain united in the face of adversity such as sanctions imposed by the Western powers.

“Peace, unity, harmony and love are prerequisites for the achievement of our country’s prosperity and sustainable socio-economic development.

“We are forever grateful to our security service sector, which continue to protect our independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity,” he said.

He said government would mount more statues of heroes and heroines of the first and second liberation struggle, to immortalise their sacrifices.

“Other heroes and heroines from the early wars of resistance will also be honoured in a similar manner. Among them, General Mtshane Khumalo, who commanded the Imbizo Regiment, under King Lobengula, that defeated the Allan Wilson Patrol at the Battle of Pupu on 10 December, 1893.

“Other distinguished heroes and heroines of the First Chimurenga/ Umvukhela such as Sekuru Kaguvi, Chaminuka, Mkwati, Queen Lozikeyi Khumalo, Chinengundu, Mashayamombe, Mgandani Dlodlo, Chiwashira, Muchecheterwa, Chingaira Makoni, and Mapondera, among others, will be accorded appropriate recognition.

“From the Second Chimurenga/ Umvukhela, the late General Josiah Magama Tongogara and General Alfred Nikita Mangena, Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe, Cde Joshua Mqhabuko Nkomo and Cde Simon Vengesai Muzenda, among others, will also be honoured,” he said.

The Heroes Day commemoration was held virtually because the government made a conscious decision to set aside public events in light of the rocketing Covid-19 cases which currently stand at 4 649 including 104 deaths.-New Ziana
