Harare. (News of The South) Zimbabweans must know that they cannot wish away ex military members in politics. They are not monsters. In the British House of Commons there are 56 ex military men and women as MPs. In the US Congress the number of ex military men has actually dropped from 108 to 97. Actually military people are more disciplined than civilian politicians using the military.
Former Conservative leader Ian Duncan Smith, a former Lieutenant in the British Army and Spokesman for the Brexit would not have been approved in Zimbabwean politics. Being in military is being political and dropping into mainstream civilian politics is only a change in the phase of politics.
In 1971, member of the US military service was at its peak, veterans made up 72 percent of members in the Congressional House and 78 percent in the Senate. In 1981, that number dipped to 64 percent of members, but veterans still made up a majority of Congress..
So you need to adapt and stop moaning.
