Good morning Zimbabwe. Fellow Zimbabweans. Following the address we
made on 13 November 2017, which we believe our main broadcaster Zimbabwe
Broadcasting Corporation and the Herald were directed not to publicise,
the situation in our country has moved to another level. Firstly we
wish to assure our nation, His Excellency, the president of the Republic
of Zimbabwe and commander in chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces,
comrade R G Mugabe and his family, are safe and sound and their security
is guaranteed.

“Good morning Zimbabwe.

Fellow Zimbabweans. Following the address we made on 13 November 2017,
which we believe our main broadcaster Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation
and the Herald were directed not to publicise, the situation in our
country has moved to another level.
Firstly we wish to assure our
nation, His Excellency, the president of the Republic of Zimbabwe and
commander in chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, comrade R G Mugabe
and his family, 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.
To the civil servants, as you are aware
there is a plan by the same individuals to influence the current
purging which is taking place in the political sphere. To the civil
service, we are against that act of injustice and we intend to protect
every one of you against that.
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.
Zimbabwe National Army Announcer, SB Moyo
To our members of parliament, your legislative role is of paramount
importance, of 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 tenants.
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 will 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 behavior. To the youth, we call upon you to realise that the
future of this country is yours. Do not be enticed with the dirty coins
of silver, be disciplined and remain committed to the efforts and values
of this great nation.
To all churches and religious
organizations in Zimbabwe, we call upon your congregations to pray for
our country and preach the gospel of love, peace and unity and
development. To both our people and the world beyond our borders, we
wish to make this abundantly clear 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 Zimbabwe Defence
Forces, all leave is canceled and you are all to return to your barracks
with immediate effect.
To the other security forces, we urge you
to cooperate for the good of our country. Let it be clear we intend to
address the human security threats in our country. Therefore any
provocation will be met with an appropriate response.
And to the media, we urge you to report fairly and responsibly.
We thank you.”
