Zimbabwe is now under the military rule for the first time in 37 years. The army has been behind the ruling party since independence as most of the army generals fought during the Chimurenga liberation struggle.
They witnessed the dismissal of Joice Mujuru, one of the Liberation Struggle veterans being humiliated like someone who did not sacrifice their blood and sweat for Zimbabwe. The previous week the noticed the sacking another liberation cadre Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.
General Chiwenga has warned the politicians that the country belongs to the war veterans who put their life on the line. He reminded the politicians that they are civilians who work for the citizens. He also asked the citizens not worry about anything but to enjoy the freedom they fought for.
The army has refused to be silenced by the president’s wife who wanted to highjack power with her G40 friends in Zanu PF deviating from the Zanla forces agreement before independence.
The army will dismiss the govt and parliament and take control of the status quo and suspend the impending elections.
That will allow Emmerson Mnangagwa to gather his followers and be voted back in the party thereby booting out the Mugabe family in the process.
Chiwenga and others were fired and they refused to step down and now they have taken control of the country. The security branch CIO is now reporting to General Chiwenga as Acting Head of State.
There are discussions already to bring back Joyce Mujuru as Vice President to Emmerson Mnangagwa alongside Morgan Tsvangirai, President of the Movement for Democratic Change. This will be a transitional govt appointed by the army to pave way for fresh elections giving time for Zanu PF to sort themselves out.
The army has now started doing Police patrols in all cities of Zimbabwe protecting the citizens from Police.
