Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) chairman Christopher Mutsvangwa has reprimanded regime change agents who are threatening Africa’s sovereignty as the country observes Africa Day today.

Mutsvangwa said in a statement yesterday that intruding and destructive elements, such as George Soros of the Open Society Institute Society of Southern Africa (OSISA), were being defeated on all fronts.

“George Soros has long hidden behind the false veil of democracy and human rights gauntlet to undermine populist governments of progressive Third World countries. Under this guise he then effects regime change so his business interests could establish reach and thrive,” he said.

Mutsvangwa said the Second Republic led by President Mnangagwa had completely transformed the investment landscape and levelled the playing field in Africa.

“On the diplomatic premise of friendship to all and enemy to none, global entrepreneurs are being welcomed regardless of their country of origin.

“An enterprising investment dollar has neither geography, nor colour, nor creed nor ideological inclination.

“That’s precisely the reason George Soros is falling short. Hence his resort to the abuse of onside and sponsored NGOs. They have fallen to new lows in their discredited role of subversion,” he said.

Zimbabwe had the business acumen to make large multibillion-dollar projects thrive, such as the burgeoning lithium projects and the Mvuma-Chivhu-Manhize Steel Plant, without the interference of Soros, Mutsvangwa added.

The $1 billion steel plant is expected to transform the economy, creating thousands of jobs both directly and indirectly for citizens.

The project will, most importantly, generate more foreign currency for Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Local Government and Public Works issued a statement urging all drivers to be cautious during the holiday to avoid accidents.

“It is disturbing to note that we continue to lose lives from road accidents, with the majority of them attributed to human error such as speeding, overtaking where it is prohibited, impatience, and fatigue, amongst others.

“Fatal road traffic accidents have become a common occurrence and the trend is on the increase in our country,” said acting secretary for Local Government and Public Works Lameck Mudyiwa.

He urged law enforcement and responsible authorities to step up efforts to enforce traffic laws and control reckless drivers on major highways.

Two Zupco buses collided head-on between Beatrice and Chinhoyi on Monday, killing four people. Meanwhile, the victims of the Harare-Chirundu Road accident have been identified by police.

The victims’ next of kin have already been contacted, according to National Police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi.  

“Four victims were positively identified by their next of kin as Cuthbert Chinyanga, a male adult aged 41 of Kuwadzana 6 Harare, Chengetai Matyenyika, a male adult of Unit N, Seke, Chitungwiza, Sifelani Harati, a male adult aged 24 of Chikonohono Chinhoyi and Diana Marowa, a female adult aged 43 of Cherima, Chikonohono Chinhoyi,” he said.
