“Accept President Mnangagwa’s Govt”: Army boss urges soldiers

Speaking at a Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) passout parade of 1 325 recruits at Lookout Masuku Barracks yesterday, Commander Lieutenant General Philip Valerio Sibanda urged soldiers to accept the country’s new Government led by President Emmerson Mnangagwa. He also urged soldiers to be vigilant and said that there are individuals that want to reverse Operation Restore Legacy.

Said Lieutenant General Sibanda:

I want to urge you all to accept the new dispensation and play your part in ensuring a peaceful environment for our country’s development. Let us all forget the past mistakes and look forward as the new government takes charge and outlines its development agenda. I need not emphasise the need for vigilance during this period as there are still some individuals who believe that they can reverse what has happened.

Lieutenant General Sibanda also commissioned a $375 000 science laboratory at Induna High School in honour of the late, Dr Sikhanyiso Ndlovu.
