'Soldiers won't apologise for supporting Mugabe'
An army official in Zimbabwe says soldiers won't apologise for supporting President Robert Mugabe.
ZIMBABWE - A top army official in Zimbabwe on Wednesday said soldiers will not apologise for supporting President Robert Mugabe.
Army chief of staff Martin Chedondo said officers cannot support a party that is opposed to the ideals of the liberation struggle.
He was referring Morgan Tsvangirai's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party.
Chedondo said Zanu-PF is the only political party that has national interests at heart.
He told the 3,000 troops that soldiers must not be blind and they should know where they came from.
Tsvangirai’s MDC has been pushing for reforms in the security sector, saying it must be overhauled before the next elections.
