War veterans are not yet liberated, says Chinotimba

Outgoing Zanu-PF Buhera South MP, Joseph Chinotimba said war veterans needed to be liberated through a proportional representation in parliament.

This comes after most war veterans lost their posts within their respective political parties to a younger generation using money to elbow them out.
Speaking during a parliamentary session, Chinotimba said war veterans are not yet liberated because the 20% quota for them has not been implemented,.

“Right now, there is a women’s quota in Parliament, youth quota in Parliament but the war veterans do not have a quota on anything. We just stay and if you want to become a Member of Parliament, you have to go and contest with others like Chinotimba when the war veterans are the ones who fought for this country.

“As far as I am concerned, the war veterans are not yet liberated because the 20% quota for them has not been implemented,” Chinotimba said.

Chinotimba landed in hot soup after he was captured on social media claiming that President Emmerson Mnangagwa wants to impose a candidate for Buhera constituency.

Chinotimba fell to Ngonidzashe Mudekunye in Buhera South primary elections.
