  1. I am confused…
    The story is about members of the Zimbabwe Defense Force abusing their own people in broad daylight on the streets of Harare… But the photo you put at the top of this story is that of the Armed Red Berets elite soldiers of Equatorial Guinea. This may be a tall order but next time please put a picture of the ZDF when writing stories about the ZDF. If you lack the testicular fortitude to do so, please call up a cartoonist to create a sketch for you. I’d appreciate it, the Zimbabwean people would appreciate it and the people of Eq. Guinea would surely appreciate it.

  2. We dont want guns in the streets! What exactly is the military trying to convey? Has the govt declared a martial law? The days of the coup are gone. I thought we have returned to civillian rule. If so, the soldiers must return and be confined to barracks. The behaviour of soldiers is very abusive. Everywhere they are harassing civillians while totting AKs. This is a pure recipe for dissaster. The situation is degenerating to a crisis as guns will be loosed in public. These soldiers are harrassing inocent civillians. Ativade muma streets. Armed soldiers can only be loosed in the streets if there is a coup and after declaring martial law!! Ngavabve Zimbabweans stand for your rights. Protest against the guns in the streets. No more soldiers in the streets.

    1. corrections: that photo is also depicting members of the Zna of the elite parachute regiment which is an airborne special force that also does counter insurgency ops. But that pic is when they were in Guinea for the afcon and not the story the writer is telling. The paras were the maroon beret nkt the red beret.
