By Staff Reporter| The Zimbabwe National Army has called off its Operation Restore Legacy which ushered in the country’s new President Emmerson Mnangagwa into office. The Operation was originally meant to run for several months into elections according fully named police sources. Assistant Commissioner, Rangarirai Mushaurwa had yesterday said the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) would continue working side by side with the police into election time next year.

But that statement together with that of Presidential Advisor Chris Mutsvangwa’s on Friday saw bread and fuel prices shoot up in hours’ time.

Mutsvangwa on Friday announced that the army will assist President Emmerson Mnagagwa to win the elections.

Army General Sibanda who is believed to have acted in an attempt to mitigate the bad effects on the economy, Monday morning declared an end to Operation Restore Legacy claiming that: “Normalcy has now returned to the country.”

The development comes after UK based academic Dr Nkululeko Sibanda had on Sunday night warned that the government is coming down due to Mutsvangwa’s “reckless statements.”  – CONTINUE READING  –

“This day (start of operation) was historic and will be remembered by generations to come,” said Gen Sibanda.

He added saying,  “it is our wish that voting and campaigning takes place in peace…Let us now all work for a peaceful and prosperous Zimbabwe.”

He however urged the police to be “professional.”
