In the realm of hardships, where poverty casts its heavy veil upon our land, I hold deep respect for every Zimbabwean soul, toiling ceaselessly day and night.
We find ourselves entrenched in a nation besieged by destitution, where the vast majority, if not all, who dwell in the realm of the impoverished, languish in its suffocating grip.
These days, both yesterday and today, serve as poignant reminders of the indomitable spirit that courses through the veins of many Zimbabweans.
Truly, we are the unsung heroes and heroines, entangled in the intricate webs of political quagmires and economic tribulations.
Yet, with unwavering determination, we press on, striving to make ends meet in a country plagued by corruption, soaring unemployment rates, economic turmoil, political unrest, and the relentless persecution of those who dare to speak up.
Men and women, girls and boys, have played instrumental roles in the positive transformation of our nation, though their efforts often go unnoticed.
It is not solely the veterans of the liberation struggle to whom we owe our gratitude, for even the born frees have contributed their part.
The absence of participation in armed conflict should not be a cause for condemnation, but alas, it becomes a burden when one finds themselves persecuted for not shouldering the burden of war.
Among us, there exists a multitude of individuals who have tirelessly worked to make Zimbabwe a better nation.
Unsung heroes of the Zimbabwean dream
Today, I find it fitting to pay homage to the musicians, both mortal and immortal, who have labored to bring about positive change in our beloved land.
Let us recognize the contributions of figures like Oliver Mtukudzi, Thomas Mapfumo, Simon “Chopper” Chimbetu, Leonard Dembo, Chiwoniso Maraire, and countless others who have used their melodies to inspire and uplift.
In the realm of literature, we encounter the luminous presence of Dambudzo Marechera, David Mungoshi, Charles Mungoshi, Tsitsi Dangarembga, and their peers.
These literary gurus have fearlessly wielded their pens, painting vivid portraits that illuminate the pursuit of freedom for the black man.
Their unwavering efforts, often underappreciated, have served as beacons guiding us towards a brighter future.
Let us channel the spirit of God, embracing his boundless creativity, as we acknowledge the multitude of Zimbabweans who have fervently supported the transformation of our nation.
Together, we stand united, a tapestry woven from the threads of resilience and hope.
May the credit and recognition they deserve be bestowed upon their weary shoulders, and may their unwavering dedication continue to shape Zimbabwe into a beacon of progress and prosperity.
