This is a Zimbabwe National Army soldier, Lance Corporal Witness Mpofu, Force Number 80127F! He was caught stealing NRZ signal cables! These security people are also being subjected to the pain created by the corrupt Mnangagwa regime they defend. Under ZANUPF we shall ALL suffer
Journalist Hopewell Chin’ono shared the picture of the soldier which had been making rounds on social media and had this to say.
Some rogue members of the army seem to have resorted to a life of crime in order to supplement their measly salaries. Army commanders have recently voiced concern about rampant indiscipline in the ranks, with poorly paid soldiers deserting the force and choosing a life of crime.
Many have been arrested at scenes of armed robberies or in the gold mines where they are accused of fuelling the violence. Last week Zim Live reported that soldiers were fingered in the ongoing rampant violent skirmishes carried out by machete-wielding gangs popularly known as Mashurugwi.
The Machete-wielding gangs comprises of illegal gold panners spread throughout the country and according to reports some members of the army have resorted to gold panning to make ends meet.
Last week, one Kudakwashe Hoko was shot and killed by private security guards at Goodhope which is part of Brompton Mine in Kadoma, where gold gangs recently disarmed and brutally killed a police officer.
Police now say their investigation has revealed that Hoko was a corporal in the Zimbabwe National Army based at the military headquarters in Harare.
