Zimbabwe 🇿🇼: Army chief accused of ‘treasonable conduct’

1 min read

Zimbabwe’s ruling party has accused the country’s army chief of “treasonable conduct” after he warned of a possible military intervention in politics. 
General Constantino Chiwenga had challenged President Robert Mugabe after he sacked the vice-president. Gen Chiwenga said the army was prepared to act to end purges within Mr Mugabe’s Zanu-PF party. 
The party said the general’s comments were “calculated to disturb national peace… [and] incite insurrection”. In a statement, the party said it would never succumb to military threats, and that it “reaffirms the primacy of politics over the gun”. 
The statement was signed by SK Moyo, the information secretary, on party letterheaded paper. 
The US State Department urged all parties in Zimbabwe to resolve disputes “calmly and peacefully” and said it was “closely monitoring” the situation.
