INFORMATION Ministry permanent secretary has denied swirling reports President Emmerson Mnangagwa has deployed troops to northern Mozambique to help fight an Islamic insurgency that erupted a few years ago.
The claims have set twitter buzzing with critics slamming the underfire Zanu PF led government for acting outside the law.
Journalist and government critic Hopewell Chinono said, “by law, Mnangagwa should inform Parliament, it can reject & recall them or simply give a nod & a wink.”
Writing on Twitter Mangwana said:
"Zimbabwe has not deployed the Zimbabwe Defence Forces(ZDF) in Mozambique."
Meanwhile, MDC Vice president Tendai Biti has said its unlawful, costly and foolish to deploy the army to Northern Mozambique.
