Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander General Constantino Chiwenga has called for order following the resignation of Robert Mugabe as Zimbabwe’s President.
He said that people who want to revenge will be dealt with and said that law enforcement and security forces will be deployed to deal with malcontents. Said Chiwenga:
Against the backdrop of the latest developments in our country, your defence and security services would want to appeal to all Zimbabweans across the political divide to exercise maximum restraint and observe law and order to the fullest.
Our vaunted character and tradition as a peaceful and law abiding nation must now show in practical terms through unconditional observance of the law. The country’s security forces and law enforcement agencies will be out in full force to ensure that law and order is observed, life, limb and property are secured.
Acts of vengeful retribution or trying to settle scores will be dealt with severely. Religious organisations across denominations are encouraged to pray for peace and stability in our country. In the same vein, students are encouraged to be well-behaved and concentrate on their studies. We further appeal to everyone to avoid abuse of the social media or any other platforms to inflame feelings or incite public disorder in the country.
We also urge the business community to go about their normal operations as always. The defence and security services expect maximum cooperation from all members of the public who must observe the country’s laws to the fullest.
