Zimbabwe Turmoil: Buhari Calls For Calm, Tells Military To Respect Constitution

0 252

President Muhammadu Buhari has called for calm, peace and respect for the constitution in Zimbabwe.

In a statement issued Wednesday by Garba Shehu, the president’s Senior Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Buhari also urged all political and military stakeholders in the country to avoid any action that may plunge Zimbabwe into unnecessary conflict and impact negatively on the region.

President Buhari’s appeal came in the wake of reported “military takeover” as a result of rising political tension in the southern African country, following President Robert Mugabe’s recent removal of his vice, Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa.

According to the statement, this led to the threat by the head of the Armed Forces of Zimbabwe, General Constantino Chiwenga, that “the military will not hesitate to step in” when the issue had to do with protecting the “revolution.”
