Women call for respect of national events

HARARE - With Zanu (PF) still holding on to national events and monuments, the Women Coalition of Zimbabwe says that the government should promote national building and ensure that all people are represented in such matters.

In a statement the coalition of womens organisations said government should promote national building above party politics.

But it was business as usual on Thursday, when Zanu (PF) monopolised National Heroes Acre and unilaterally declared the late CIO director, Menard Muzariri, a National Hero.

Because of the big brother behaviour of Zanu (PF) both MDC formations boycotted the burial of the spy chief who was deeply involved in the 1980s Matebeleland disturbances.

The Coalition said such monopolisations should be stopped in order to promote national healing.

The state should ensure non-partisan use of state resources, humanitarian aid, traditional leadership structures, it said.

Zanu (PF) routinely monopolises national events, including Independence Day, to vilify political opponents and the international community.
