Zimbabwe will celebrate its Heroes of the liberation struggle that fought gallantly and selflessly to bring about independence from colonial rule. This is an important date on the calendar as it reminds us of why men and women took up arms and sacrificed their lives for the freedom we enjoy today. This will be a 2 part article as we commemorate Heroes Day on 13th August. I must say this article is inspired by political developments in the country especially comments attributed to the Prime Minister during a memorial service of the late Nationalist, Reverend Ndabaningi Sithole.
The PM said, “Leadership is very unique, it must inspire future generations and shape where the country is going and what you are leaving for the children”. These words will form the basis of my article in relation to our country’s history.
