Soldiers turn rogue and join protestors?
Published: 15 January 2019 (258 Views)
There are reports reaching us that some elements of the Zimbabwe National Army and the Zimbabwe Republic Police assigned to restore and order in high density suburbs of Harare and Bulawayo have gone rogue and resorted to assisting residents to loot from shops.

A top lawyer from Bulawayo who spoke to us in the afternoon said, “In Sekusile and Emganwini soldiers and police are assisting the residents to loot. They are telling them to get what they want but they must not burn the shops.”

In Mabuthweni, Pelandaba, Old Lobengula and Lobengula extension it was reported that soldiers were accompanying residents to loot from the shops and they were protecting them too.

One ex-military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said, “On Monday I was seated by the roadside in Chitungwiza watching the road. I saw a group of young men with almost shaven heads jogging, they were very fit. They swiftly took car tyres set them on fire and put them on the road. They then started running.

“Those boys were too fit for ordinary men. And the bravery and the resilience they had to overpower police men shocked me.

“The boys also led in the destruction of shops and safeguarded  people as they were looting in Chitungwiza. I have my own suspicions but to tell you the truth, those boys who led the residents were not ordinary boys from the ghetto. Yes ghetto boys developed courage when they saw some of the guys overpowering police even inside police stations and joined  in the operation.”
