Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) boss Philip Valerio Sibanda yesterday accused MDC Alliance for causing the deaths of six people shot by soldiers during post election violent protests in Harare over presidential election results announcement.

In an interview with a local publication ahead of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Day today, ZDF Commander General Sibanda said six people would not have been killed had it not been for the opposition which incited violence.
Said General Sibanda:

“Zimbabwe remains secure despite the recent politically motivated violence that erupted a day after the harmonised elections on 30 July 2018.

That notwithstanding, the country has continued to enjoy peace, security and stability during the harmonised elections.

Had it not been for evil intentions of some opposition political players who went on to 8incite violent protests, unnecessary loss of life of six people who were caught up in the unfortunate shooting incidents could have been avoided.

All the same, the Zimbabwe Defence Forces remain resolute in its support for the ZRP as they continue to fulfil their constitutional mandate of maintenance of law and order to ensure peace, security and stability in the country.

People are therefore, assured that they should feel free to go about their usual business.”
