Discuss plight of retirees as well

Dear editor,
I AM surprised that none of the presidential candidates is talking about resolving the plight of retired civil servants.
It is unfair for the aspirants to ignore the suffering of the government retirees because it is a governance issue.
These retirees have no homes, their children are out of schools and higher institutions of learning because of failure to pay fees, yet government owes them huge amounts of money in form of benefits.
This must be one of the campaign issues because these are Zambians who served the nation under very difficult circumstances.
