Herald taking patriotism too far



THE Herald recently reported that some local major generals were honoured for defending the “legitimate” government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Nevertheless, I think using the adjective “legitimate” in reference to the late President Laurent Kabila and his government who seized power in a bloody coup is taking “patriotism” too far – even by Zanu PF standards.
