Zim Defence force assures security

Rt Rev Bishop Morris Gwedegwe
FELLOW Zimbabweans, vanamai naana baba, bobaba labomama, brothers and
sisters, it is with great honour and humility that we in the Defence
Forces of Zimbabwe accepted your invitation to come and commiserate with
all of you on this great moment in the life of our people and our country.

This solidarity march which you have organised so well, judging by the
magnitude of attendance here today (Saturday), is a strong indication that
our people are ready for a new beginning and to make their contribution in
the development of their country.

I stand here today as a messenger of love and peace from the entirety of
the Zimbabwe Defence Forces.

Your patriotic soldiers also want to assure you that your country,
property and your personal security is assured in their hands. Indeed as
Defence Forces, we are overjoyed to be part of this momentous event which
is full of excitement and hope.

We are all agreed that the socio-economic and political situation in our
country today has sharply deteriorated to a level where life has become
unbearable for the majority of our people across the board. Hospitals have
become death traps as there are almost zero services, commodity prices
have sky-rocketed, transport services have become a nightmare, jobs have
become a thing of the past as elected politicians endlessly quarrel over
positions for personal gain.

These are the socio-economic and political ills that have cajoled your
soldiers, once again, to make this extreme sacrifice in defence of your
motherland, national interests and human rights.

Viva Zimbabwe, our motherland!!!

-Rt Rev Bishop Morris Gwedegwe is the Defence Forces Service Commissioner.
