Army Responds To Reports It Has Deployed Soldiers To Terrorise Villagers Ahead Of Elections

In a statement yesterday, Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) Public Relations Lieutenant-Colonel Alphios Makotore dismissed claims that they deployed soldiers in Nkayi, who were terrorising villagers. 

Said Lieutenant-Colonel Alphios Makotore :

Reference is hereby made to a story ‘Soldiers Causing Terror, Havoc in Nkayi’ which was published in an online edition on 23 January 2018.

In the story, it is stated that Zimbabwe National Army members have been accused of abusing villagers in Nkayi, Gwelutshena area ahead of this year’s elections. The ZNA would like to state that no members of the army are deployed in the Nkayi area or any of its surroundings. None of its members are therefore involved in the aforementioned activities.

Furthermore, the organisation is not involved in any ZANU-PF political campaigns as suggested by the article. The ZNA would like to take this opportunity to appeal to you (Bulawayo 24 news) in particular and any other news organisations to verify with its Public Relations authorities first whenever you have stories of that nature.
