JUST IN: Plaudits to Zim’s unsung heroes
This picture shows people doing last-minute Christmas shopping in the Harare central business district on Thusday.

Herald Reporter
Zimbabwe joined large parts of the Christian world yesterday in celebrating Christmas Day, with most citizens spending the much-awaited day with relatives and friends, aware that their safety was guaranteed.

But as the rest of citizens enjoyed, for some being home was a luxury they could not afford because of the nature of their jobs.

Such people include firefighters, police, soldiers, Air Force personnel, doctors especially emergency responders, nurses especially the delivery room men and women, bus drivers, customs and immigration officers, and journalists, among others.

While others may trivialise their contribution in keeping people safe, healthy and providing other critical services, those that have benefited from such professionals are thankful.

Experts suggest that society should find a way of “acknowledging them, thank them for their service, show them love”. They are hard at work keeping our country going and safe

    Looking at that photograph it seems that many people at home are now breathing through their chins…
    But as usual The Herald made me laugh when they ask that we should think of our policemen and soldiers.
    And that we should be “acknowledging them, thank them for their service, show them love” as they are “hard at work keeping our country going and safe”.
    Just imagine it. Please Mr Policeman put that whip down as I want to give you a big hug!
    All I ever hear of them doing is beating hell out of people so as to keep our thieving politicians and their cronies in the extreme luxury that they have become so used to.
    For example, where in this world earth would you find a Deputy President spending more time in very expensive foreign hospital beds than at home …and paid for by a starving people.
