MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa has said that the military knows the constitution and will salute whoever emerges as the winner of the 2018 elections. Speaking at a rally, Chamisa said,
The army is the people’s military. They salute the people and the leader chosen by the people. We are going to elections and the military will salute the leader who would have been chosen. They will not be saluting the people, but the Constitution,” Chamisa said to applause….We are happy that our military knows the law. They will salute not the leader, but the Constitution. We do not want hungry soldiers and we will correct that including all working conditions for government workers across the board.
