The Zimbabwe National Army has condemned the acts of violence perpetrated by alleged members of the military to unsuspecting citizens.
This was said in a letter signed by the Army Public Relations Director Alphios Mokotore.
“The Zimbabwe National Army has noted with concern allegations of violence by people purporting to be members of the organization. These actions by these bogus elements have subsequently put the image of the organization into disrepute.”
The army also urged members of the public to report to the military police if they are abused.
“In view of the foregoing, ZNA would like to urge members of the public to report any acts of misconduct by anyone purporting to be a member of the organization.”
President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who first swept to power through a popular military coup in November 2017 also vowed to bring to book rogue members of Zimbabwe’s gung-ho military who left a trail of blood around the country during last week’s fuel protests.
The under-pressure 76-year-old Zanu PF leader announced these bold moves soon after he returned to the country late on Monday evening, after he cancelled his scheduled trip to Switzerland where he was due to attend this year’s meeting of the World Economic Forum (Wef) — which kicked-off yesterday.
