    Quite fascinating, what is the illegal weighting of this incident. What bearing does it really have on the peace and security situation of the Zimbabwean?

    Just make sure this is not a retaliatory or vindictive outcome or else all his former lieutenants since 1980 should go through the same process for justice to prevail.

    Question 1: does the ZNA use camouflage umbrellas as a part of their uniform? If yes, then why? Wouldn’t it look silly for soldiers to go into battle with umbrellas? I think so.
    If the answer is no (which I suspect it is) then how can it have been stolen from the ZNA if they dont use them.

    Question 2: The army are looking for army camouflage uniforms allegedly used by alleged fake soldiers during the recent riots etc in Zimbabwe, was anyone of the demonstrators or fake soldiers witnessed demonstrating or whatever while using a camouflage umbrella? I really doubt if there were any camouflage umbrellas used.

    Question 3: Why is the army conducting this law enforcement, is Zimbabwe under military rule? Can ZRP not do this?
