Watch: ‘Army lieutenant’ advises soldiers not to protect Zanu PF
An anonymous ‘member’ of the Zimbabwe National Army’ has said it was high time the citizenry, including uniformed forces, stopped protecting corrupt politicians in the country.
The official who was identified by exiled former Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education Professor Jonathan Moyo only as a Lieutenant Colonel who commands a Battalion said that only good governance can transform the lives of the people of Zimbabwe.
He speaks when there is an increased government crackdown on dissent and arrest of anti-corruption crusaders.
He said state security forces should disobey orders to harm innocent civilians.
