'Selfish' Mugabe could have named barracks after himself - Mliswa
Published: 07 December 2017 (523 Views)
Norton house of assembly legislator Temba Mliswa has hailed the renaming of army barracks by President Emmerson Mnangagwa before blasting former president Robert Mugabe for being selfish.

"The exercise of renaming army barracks after the resigning of Mugabe shows that the former president was not for our legacy anymore, actually he could've named it after himself like what he did with the airport," said Mliswa.

The Zimbabwe National Army and Air Force of Zimbabwe headquarters were on Thursday renamed from the KGV1 Barracks to Josiah Magamba Tongogara Barracks.

The barracks have been renamed after the late General and ZANLA Chief of Defence, General Josiah Magama Tongogara.

KGV1 was derived from King George VI was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth.
