Zimbabwe Fears Existence Of A Large Militia Group As A Large Shipment Of Weapons Is Intercepted

Zimbabwe Fears Existence Of A Large Militia Group As A Large Shipment Of Weapons Is Intercepted

Zimbabwe’s state security operatives reportedly seized a large shipment of weapons at West Nicholson, Matabeleland South Province.

The state security operatives say they intercepted 3 trucks (company name withheld) carrying 6 containers, some of which had AK47 rifles, rocket launchers, grenades and other explosives hidden under tiles.

The authorities said they were not in a position to reveal the owners of the containers or the intended destination in Zimbabwe. But they said the discovery has increased fears of possible violence during next year’s elections.

State security agents say they are still sifting through the weapons to determine all the types and quantities. According to the agents, the type and quantity of weapons might prove the existence of a large militia group planning a major offensive.

Only a small part of the arsenal was shown to the media, but it was enough to worry security experts. They identified the artillery rockets as Norinco rockets – a type used by the Taliban in Afghanistan – suitable for high-intensity warfare.

Official sources told the Daily Monitor that the shipment is suspected to have originated from Europe. However, security officials, told journalists the authorities were still establishing the exact origin of the weapons and their intended destination. Poice spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi is quoted as saying:

At this point, the only thing we can say is that we have some armaments we have intercepted … Let’s not jump to conclusions.

Officials told the Daily Monitor that there had been some arrests, but gave no further details. Security has been stepped up in Zimbabwe as the country gears towards the 2023 harmonised elections.

In some unrelated reports, a founding member of the Movement for Democratic Alliance, Mr Gabriel Chaibva recently claimed that the opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) had re-established an armed paramilitary wing within its ranks, which is recruiting and arming militias with a target of having trained 7 000 people by 2023.

The CCC denies the reports and dismisses them as a ploy by the government to justify the victimisation of the party’s supporters.

Six containers & not a single picture of one of the container? Fake stories are always poorly thought out & they always have loopholes like a sieve. In any case NORINCO is a North China Organisation spe****ing in Weapons & defence systems. We all know which all-weather friends trade with the Chinese. In 2006, they claimed to have found an arms Cache at Roy Bennet's farm in Chimanimani. ED wasbthe Defence Minister then. The charges collapsed because the story was so **** & inconsistent as the arms were obviously planted. In the early 1980s, they claimed to have found an arms cache at Ascot farm. ED was the Minister of State sucurity then. They then massacred innocent, unarmed & defenceless civillians in Matebelelabd & Midlads provinces in an ethnic cleansing titual they called Gukurahundi. In 2013,they claimed to have caught a few persons whom they claimed were trying to bomb Gushungo Dairies. The story was so ridiculous & poorly contrived that noone psid attention to it. Now they claim to have found six containers of munitions & ED is the President, always at the centre of evil ploys. Anyway, the trend is to pretend to find arms towards elections. The plan is to justify repression & intimidation by security operations under the JOC. But the falsehoods are always exposed by spooks who do not subscribe to State Terrorism agaisnt civillians.

The picture above shows 3 old assault rifles, 3 grenades, 4 Banana Clip magazines & a few high calibre bullets. Beneath are 3 old & scratched boxes. It's hardly the kind of amourments & artillery that can be used by a militia to cause an insurgency by 7 000 people. Its a cock & bull story. A ruse. A black operation by most likely the covert MID. A terror tactic by the government against the people. Sadly the trick was poorly presented such that every official is embarassed to talk about it.

At the moment, the public shud not get swayed by the antics of the regime. Zanu is no more and they will try any possible acts to retain power. Zanu will step up its cheap propaganda, repression of differing voises, abductions , electoral systems manipulation, intimidations, etc etc. This is to be expected of a dying regime. It will try to launch some last kicks... but lets remain calm, focused and clear on our goal: ZANU MUST GO, ZANU HAS FAILED US, WE ARE IN THIS MESS AS A COUNTRY BCOZ OF ZANU MISSGOVERNANCE. Lets continue to struggle and eventully we will be free again.

The very same truck that was employed ZANU in the 80's to take advantage to massacre Matebeles.They had claimed to have found arma and ammunition on Zipra farms,whlist Zipra was still coming to terms with this development they were under siege by Mugabes DPRK trained 5th brigade.What is very surprising at this moment in time is ZANU as the ruling party is equally at odds with itself.It cannot even trust itself.MRP,CCC, Doctors,Teachers,Nurses and the rest of the civil service are out of this equation.Bob knew what he said ,back then

Yes. It might be true. When Paul Nyathi is quoted as confirming the incident, then there is little room for doubt. Otherwise there must an official rebuttal of the story if it's untrue. In any case, there are historical precedents of arms caches heing found from the early 1980s to date. So its important to take precaution as we head to the 2023 plebiscite.
