Zimbabwe Army Dismisses Mutoko Armed Robbery Reports (Full Text)

Zimbabwe Army Dismisses Mutoko Armed Robbery Reports (Full Text)

The Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) has dismissed as fake reports of an armed robbery that allegedly happened in Mutoko on Wednesday. A message circulating on social media alleged that four people were arrested over the said robbery. Pindula News presents a statement by ZNA on the matter:

MEDIA RESPONSE ON FAKE NEWS ITEM ON ALLEGED ARMED ROBBERY IN MUTOKO

In response to a social media and WhatsApp fake message that has been circulating since early this morning, the Zimbabwe National Army would like to set the record straight that no such robbery occurred in Mutoko yesterday on 16 February 2022. The Security Forces have carried out thorough investigations in and around Mutoko and no such incident took place. The alleged victims are also non-existent. The fake report also says four people were arrested but without mentioning their names. The Zimbabwe Republic Police in Mutoko has also refuted that they arrested anyone related to an armed robbery case in the area.

The Army would like to point out that this message is malicious and must be dismissed with the contempt it deserves. The Security Forces are very much concerned about the spread of fake news posts especially when there are regional and international conferences taking place. It is now well established that such fake news posts are meant to cause alarm and despondence.

Investigations have now been instituted to apprehend the originators of these fake news posts and the perpetrators will be brought to book.

MAY I PRAISE COLONEL MAKOTOSE, THE ARMY PUBLIC RELATIONS DIRECTOR, FOR UPDATING POVO ON THE GOINGS ON OF AN ALLEGED ROBBERY REPORT WHICH ALLEGEDLY OCCURRED IN MUTOKO.

BUT THIS IS A COMPLETELY DEPARTURE FROM THE PRACTICE WE ARE ACCUSTOMED TO. WE ARE USED TO THE POLICE GIVING SUCH BRIEFINGS OF CRIME INVESTIGATIONS.

MAY BE IF THE STORY HAD IMPLICATED MEMBERS OF THE ARMY. IN THIS STORY THERE IS NOWHERE WHERE ANY MEMBERS HAVE BEEN MENTIONED.

IF THE GENERALS FELT THAT POLICE HAD DELAYED, THEY SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN IN TOUCH WITH THE POLICE AND ASK THEM TO EXPEDITE IN ISSUING A STATEMENT.

IF THIS TREND CONTINUES, VERY SOON WE ARE GOING TO GET CONFLICTING REPORTS FROM THE ARMY AND POLICE.
