The study utilised a predominantly qualitative design and therefore all the 134 respondents were purposively selected.

These measures included a resettlement program for the landless veterans, an educational/vocational training program to enable the veterans acquire locally marketable skills, a health care fund for the chronically sick veterans and financial assistance to the disabled veterans to improve on their health status and assist them set up income generating projects, assisting the veterans to acquire finance and thus engage in income generating projects and self-employment and counteracting community stigmatization of the veterans through various public relations programs.
