Can anybody explain how liberation hero status is given?

Zanu PF Proportional Representation MP for Beitbridge Lisa Singo 47 was declared a liberation heroine and yet she was 5 years old when the liberation war ended in 1979. Is this hero status not yet another looting avenue since families of heroes and heroines are paid hefty amounts of money and their funerals are 100% sponsored by the State? Biggie Matiza was declared a national hero when he was at Goromonzi High School in 1978, 12 months before the war ended.
