November 17, 2017 (SSB) — The Zimbabwean Army Chief warned sternly a week ago that if the purges of the war revolutionaries by Mugabe and the leading members of the G40, his inner circle, of his ruling Zanu-PF did not stop, the army would not hesitate to step in to rescue the situation and the people of Zimbabwe who have survived under the dictatorial rule and oppression of the 93 year-old war veteran.

It did not take a week before the General surrounded the Blue House, Mugabe residence and the ZBC with tanks and troops in downtown Harare. He assured the people of Zimbabwe and the world that President Gabriel Robert Mugabe’s safety and that of his wife Grace was guaranteed.

The General said it was not a coup but a crack-down on the criminals around the President. The spokesman of General Constantino Chiwenga said Gabriel Robert Mugabe is still the President and the commander-in-chief of the Zimbabwean Defence Forces.

The targets are the criminals around him who are causing social and economic unrest in the country. The Chair of SADC President Zuma said he would be sending an envoy to talk to the General and President Robert Mugabe to maintain law and order in Zimbabwe and to restore stability.

Lack of health care centers increases the infant mortality rate every year. Young mothers cry every day as they mourn their dead newborns that die due to lack of health facilities; qualified health workers and insufficient drugs. Look at the beauty of Juba teaching hospital; numerous patients’ wards and ample spaces for outpatients.

But the worst part of it is that the busiest ward is its mortuary. Why? Who takes drugs donated by the humanitarian organizations? This needs an answer but because the Gods of South Sudan are still asleep let the looters fill their bellies with bloodstained benefits of our health facility.
