There will never be freedom in this country for as long as that fear or risk remains. Even President Mnangagwa is no longer safe in his office for as long as this fear persists. Anytime, Operation Restore Legacy may crank into motion.
ZUNDE also lamented the fact that the military’s intervention codenamed Operation Restore Legacy had benefitted a few people?
First, they ( Zimbabe Defence Forces) did not restore anything, not even a legacy, they propped themselves up and forced their own legacy on Zimbabwe. It was abusive of the masses to march them onto the streets to remove an evil person and his criminals from office only to declare a holiday in honour of the same evil person.
How can we tell our children we removed Mugabe from office and then ask them to celebrate him?
