Army sources have reportedly told Team Pachedu that they are also incapacitated and the airforce has 4 functional helicopters countrywide.
Team Pachedu revealed this as they were encouraging people to go out and protest on 31 July and not to be intimidated by the show of force by the security forces.
Team Pachedu Tweeted:
#ZanupfMustGo Contrary to the supposedly ‘Show of force’ by Zim Security forces over the past days. The Airforce has only 4 functional helicopters countrywide. ‘Even us in the army we are incapacitated too don’t let the few trucks fool you’. #31July
The government through the ruling party has said it will descend heavily on protesters claiming it does not tolerate anarchy. Furthermore, Jacob Ngarivhume, the Transform Zimbabwe leader who called for the protest was arrested together with journalist Hopewell Chin’ono for allegedly enticing public violence and were remanded in custody till next month.
