Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander General Philip Valerio Sibanda says the corruption & greed displayed by Zimbabwean leaders are against the teachings & ethos of the liberation struggle. It’s a telling remark, coming from the country’s top soldier. But what will he do about it?
General Sibanda’s remarks come a few short weeks after security service council addressed a press conference and dismissed “widespread rumours” that a coup was imminent in Zimbabwe. Meanwhile, over the past few weeks, the media has unearthed corruption scandals involving the president’s close family and other government officials.
