Former ZANU PF politburo member and minister for Higher and Tertiary Education, Jonathan Moyo, says the Commander of One Presidential Guard Infantry Battalion at State House, Lt Col Samson Murombo has been suspended from duty following a shooting incident at State House earlier this week.
A young soldier reportedly fired shots into the air whilst on guard duty at State House, complaining of “hunger” and was promptly taken into custody over the incident. He was subsequently tortured and later taken for a mental examination.
Writing on microblogging site Twitter on Friday, Moyo said:
Meanwhile, the Commander of One Presidential Guard Infantry Battalion at State House, Lt Col Samson Murombo, has been suspended from duty over the State House shooting incident, for which he’s being blamed. He’s been replaced by Col Chicha. Murombo is of the Auxillia audio fame!
