Hundreds of children of the ex-fighters are reportedly being send home by schools due to non-payment of their fees by the government.

COZWA said if their matter was not attended to as a matter of urgency, they will take on war veterans minister Tshinga Dube, head-on.

“Section 19 of the Constitution provides for access to education to all Zimbabweans including children of war veterans. We have received reports that some schools especially in Matabeleland Province have already started sending war veterans children with debts away from school despite the fact that the government promised to settle all the debts,” leader of the association, John Muchenje, said. “This development adversely affects the students and it must not be allowed.”
