An army insider has told Khuluma Afrika that ‘The Generals are done talking’ after we posed questions about a statement released by Zanu PFs Youth League, and more light regarding a statement by their Commander, General Chiwenga yesterday.

The army insider who we cannot name at this time refused to confirm the authenticity of two of the three videos of army tanks circulating on social media, along with images of soldiers and army trucks spotted along Harare – Chinhoyi road.

Khuluma Afrika had reached out to him, hoping to get clarity on why army tanks have been spotted along Chinhoyi road, just outside Inkom barracks.

Our initial suspicion was that it was either an army drill (as seen with videos of army trucks along Gweru – Shurgugwi road a few weeks back), or it was a show of force in response to Kudzai Chipanga’s threat.

Generally given the ill sentiment, it is also logical to assume that ‘something is brewing’.

But the question has / had been – “What exactly is that something?”

We also asked the insider if the General and the military would respond to Kudzai Chipanga.

His response was short and precise – “The generals are done talking”

He refused to clarify exactly what the meant, or implies.

Soon, we may know.
