Army warns Mugabe, Zanu PF

HARARE - Zimbabwe could be on the brink of a calamitous political crisis, after the country’s restless military bosses sharply rebuked President Robert Mugabe and Zanu PF yesterday — warning ominously that they would not hesitate to step in if the ruling party continues with its worsening mindless bloodletting.

Speaking in Harare in the unprecedented public reprimand of Mugabe and Zanu PF, the commander of the Defence Forces — General Constantino Chiwenga — also warned the former liberation movement against firing struggle stalwarts from within its ranks.

Civil servants have been living a miserable life in Zimbabwe. They are the purest and can only survive by corruption and the Army generals have been quiet about it. Now it is the VP who is fired and they now raise their heads. Keep it up Generals

putting limited material online hoping that people will buy more hard copies is not a 20th century way of doing business. are you not for online adverts which we see in numbers in other local online publications

You may as well not post full story, as diasporans we now reading news from friendly websites. By the time you post full story it will be stale. Munya wakarara. Embrace effects of rapid changes in technology or you will forever be trapped in the past like NOKIA

don't be fooled the military are not your friends. in 2004 they declared to not salute anyone with no liberation war credentials, in 2008 they reversed people's will by killing and maiming during the run off election and now they have suddenly become democrats? no way. they are made of the same cloth as zanoids, only speaking up when their luxury lives face extinction. go hang, all of you.
