The government of Zimbabwe says it finds it most regrettable and unfortunate that South Africa’s Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, issued an inflammatory and accusatory statement alleging that military deserters from the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF), are responsible for increased crime in that country targeting banks. In a statement to the ZBC News today, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the government of Zimbabwe wishes to state and put it on record that the Zimbabwean military has always discharged its duties with valour, distinction and honour in accordance with the country’s constitution and defence act. “We also wish to clarify that the Defence Act and the Constitution provides for the voluntary enlistment into the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and also sets out clear conditions of service and honourable termination including retirement.
