Shiri Praises Chiwenga For Not Being Power Hungry

Addressing Zanu-PF supporters at Chakari Stadium in Mashonaland West on Sunday, Retired Air Chief Marshal Perrance Shiri praised former Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander and Vice President Retired General Constantino Chiwenga for not seizing power but following due procedure during Operation Restore Legacy.

Said Shiri:

General Chiwenga is the person who orchestrated Operation Restore Legacy. He is a principled man who does things in honesty. If it was someone else, he could have taken over power, declaring that he was in charge (of State and Government). There was nothing that could have stopped him since he was in charge of the army. General Chiwenga is a person who is politically mature and with the people and country at heart. Due to political orientation, he understood that hove huru dzinofamba nemurongwa (leadership renewal follows laid down procedures). As a result, the party chose President Emmerson Mnangagwa to lead the party, while VP Chiwenga wanted to return to the barracks. However, President Mnangagwa appointed him Vice President and second secretary of the ruling Zanu-PF party.
