The Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) together with the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) warned individuals who seek their services to settle personal scores, taking advantage of the ongoing Operation Restore Legacy.
Part of the statement reads:
Members of the public are warned against seeking the services of the ZDF to settle old personal scores taking advantage of the ongoing Operation Restore Legacy. Such cases are clearly a violation of the law,” the statement says. Operation Restore Legacy was launched by the ZDF last month to weed out corrupt elements that were causing social and political instability in the country. The defence and security services said vengeful retribution was against the spirit of unity in the new political dispensation. While we are mindful of citizens’ constitutional rights to express their views through various forms, there are certain individuals and groups who are continuing to organise unsanctioned retribution-related demonstrations.
