Zimbabwe’s Army General, Chiwenga Refuses To Go After Being Sacked By Mugabe – New Report

Former United States congressman Mel Reynolds who is a two time convicted felon has claimed that his sources in the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) have advised him that President Robert Mugabe is threatening to arrest General Constantino Chiwenga.

Chiwenga is the commander of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and according to Reynolds he was fired by Mugabe but is refusing to go. This comes after former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was fired earlier on today over a number of allegations.

Chiwenga is known to have openly supported  Mnangagwa.The former congressman revealed this in a series of tweets, although the information is yet to be verified. Writing on microblogging site Twitter Reynolds said:


In September Reynolds was convicted of four counts of tax evasion. During his trial, he claimed that President Robert Mugabe was paid a $100 000 bribe by businessman Elzie Higginbottom for diamond concessions. He did not produce any evidence to back his claims.

Here are more tweets from Mel Reynolds:

Reynolds came to Zimbabwe in 2014 and claimed that he was going to invest US$145million into developing a five-star Hilton Hotel and an office complex in Harare. The deal never materialized and he was later arrested at a Harare hotel on pornography charges which were dismissed by the courts. He was found guilty of staying in the country on an expired visa and deported.

Zimbabwe remains on stand still.
