The commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Valerio Sibanda has made it clear that the ZDF doesn’t belong to any individual or a certain group but to the nation.
He said this during an interview that appeared on ZBCtv as he was advising Zimbabweans to use social media wisely.
Sibanda said reports spreading on social media that certain individuals and groups are controlling the Defence forces are false and should be disregarded.
“The ZDF are for the people, we are here to serve and protecy Zimbabweans we serve the nation not individuals,”
This comes after some social media users have accused the ZDF for being controlled and influenced by certain people or cabals in political arenas.
It is also important to note that these claims are not backed by anything except conspiracies.
Zimbabwe has generally suffered from flooding of fake news as the internet remains unregulated im the country.
