Posted on 11/14/2017 11:25:28 PM PST by aquila48
Fellow Zimbabweans, following the address we made on 13 November 2017 which we believe our main broadcaster, ZBC and The Herald were directed not to publicise, the situation in our country has moved to another level.
Firstly, we wish to assure the nation that His Excellency, The President, of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Head of State and Government and Commander in Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Cde R.G Mugabe and his fa,ily are safe and sound and their security is guaranteed. We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.
As soon as we have accomplished our mission we expect that the situation will return to normalcy.
To the civil servants: As you are aware, there is a plan by the same individuals to influence the current purging taking place in Zanu PF to the Civil service. We are against that act of injustice and we intend to protect everyone of you against it.
To the judiciary, the measures underway are intended to ensure that, as an independent arm of the state, you are able to exercise your independent authority without fear of being obstructed as has been the case with this group of individuals.
To our Members of Parliament: Your legislative role is of paramount importance for peace and stability in this country and it is our desire that a dispensation is created that allows you to serve your respective political constituencies according to democratic tenets.
To the generality of the people of Zimbabwe: We urge you to remain calm and limit unnecessary movement. However, we encourage those who are employed and those with essential business in the city to continue their normal activities as usual. Our wish is that you enjoy your rights and freedoms and that we return our country to a dispensation that allows for investment, development and prosperity that we all fought for and for which many of our citizens paid the supreme sacrifice.
To political Parties; We urge you to discourage your members from engaging in violent behaviour.
To the youth: We call upon you to realise that the future of this country is yours. Do not be enticed with dirty coins of silver, be disciplined and remain committed to the ethos and values of this great nation.
To all Churches and religious organisations in Zimbabwe: We call upon you and your congregations to pray for our country and preach the gospel of love, peace, unity and development.
To both our people and the world beyond our borders: We wish to make it abundantly clear that this is not a military takeover of Government. What the Zimbabwe Defence Forces is doing is to pacify a degenerating political, social and economic situation in our country which if not addressed may result in violent conflict.
We call upon all the war veterans to play a positive role in ensuring peace, stability and unity in the country.
To members of the Defence Forces: All leave is cancelled and you are all to return to your barracks with immediate effect.
To our respected Traditional leaders: You are the custodians of our culture, customs, traditions and heritage and we request you to provide leadership and direction to your communities for the sake of unity and development in our country.
To the other Security Services: We urge you to cooperate for the good of our country. Let it be clear that we intend to address the human security threats in our country. Therefore any provocation will be met with an appropriate response.
To the media; we urge you report fairly and responsibly.
A Rhodesian friend asked me years ago if I knew what they used to light their homes with before they used candels...
He said “ Light bulbs”.
“We are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.”
And then they go on to reassure everybody else. BUT - then it makes me wonder who are the criminals? I could see the Liberals in the U.S. coming up with something like this.
But of course most of us on FR would be considered criminals for saying bad things about Hillary and Obama, etc.
I’m guessing that the Zimbabwe Defence Forces has a similar view of what constitutes a criminal.
Mugabe is not only a murderer but a genocidal one. He has tried to kill every white in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia), rivals from the other faction, and anti-communists. He used No. Korean troops to slaughter a reported 10,000 people who resisted his “land reform” confiscation program which caused starvation in some places (similar to that of Stalin’s Russia/Soviet Union, Ho’s similar plans, and the major killer of Mao’s “Land Reform Program”).
Let’s hope the military has finally decided to eliminate this Marxist mass murderer and thief.
“A Rhodesian friend asked me years ago if I knew what they used to light their homes with before they used candels...

I imagine Venezuelans may start stealing that joke.
Oh I get that - and I don’t believe for a moment that the military isn’t going after Mugabe, in spite of their use of his glorified title. I can only imagine what they will deem as being criminal - and if they are successful, what sort of rule they will impose on the country.
There was a thread awhile ago about Nixon calling the people in Africa “little children”. It was an excerpt - and he was talking about how their leaders were like little children when it came to ruling a nation.
I did some more research on it, and in an interview before Watergate Nixon said that after the USSR and China, he wanted to focus on improving relations in South America, and then in Africa - and in Africa specifically helping their leaders develop.
I’m guessing the military overturning Mugabe will end up being a tit-for-tat revenge fest rather than an improvement in government.
Pamwe Chete ......
Racial Fascist Mugabe’s regime, an anti white racist dystopia, is now imploding.Of course Mugabe is a colleague of liberal fascist Barrack Obama, who wishes to balakanize the United States along racial and ethnic lines, using racial shake down artists such as Al Sharpton, a regular former vistor to the white Hut.
Watch as the tin pot dictator shred his people as they die in dystopian blood baths.There but for the votes of patriots, would go the United States.
Soon the calls for financial aid will go out from the liberal fascists in Congress, as they seek to succor these fascists in Zimbabwe, as once again they try to set up yet another kick back scheme to line their pockets.
It is all that is left to steal.
Actually, that’s a pretty good statement for a coup to put out.
You know, PR-wise.
...now leaving Mugabe alive? Maybe less smart.
...that might be Uganda.
Which ones taste like chicken?
The answer is always “The one you’re currently eating.”
I bet Nicholas Maduro is awake and keeping up with the latest developments.
Venezuela is the new Zimbabwe.
He’s 93, what harm can he do? He will end up under quiet house arrest in some villa to live out his last years.
It’s Grace they need to dispose of, she’s the threat to them.
This BBC feed gives us a clearer picture of what is a coup not being called a coup by a faction of the ruling party.
It’s an indicator that this is not a spur of the moment action. They have put some thought into this.
Mrs. Mugabe is not a universally beloved figure. I suspect that they waited for her to make her move, and now can argue that they are reacting to her actions. I think that they planned this out, and merely waited for Mrs. Mugabe to move first, which provided them the justification for acting.
As long as the country does not slide into civil war, the Zimbabwe may be better off.
And it’s worth noting that Mugabe got into power assisted by various elements of Western Liberal Governments and his regime propped up ever since by the same plus UN and EU aid and from others plus a pass from the MSM.
This is what they would have in store for us too, of course.
