UK's military plot exposed

Political Editor

BRITAIN is recruiting Zimbabweans into its army, a move seen by the Zimbabwe Government as part of a plan to oust President Mugabe from power violently.

Security sources say the locals could be used in a military offensive against Zimbabwe should Britain execute its plan to topple the Government.

The recruitment also includes some Zimbabwean soldiers.

In a letter dated December 2 2002 to a top Zimbabwean official who had been put as a referee by one Ashley Chibaya in his application to join the British army, Mrs L. Bradbury from the Commander Recruiting Group wrote:

"Ashley Chibaya has applied for a Commission in the British Army and has given us your name as a referee.

"At this stage of Ashley’s application, the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) needs to establish his identity and be assured as to his background, character and integrity.

"Whereas we are able to establish identity by other means, it would be very much appreciated if you would kindly provide a reference in respect of the latter aspects.

"Your reference need not be extensive, but should include a note as to how long you have known him and in what capacity," reads the letter by Mrs Bradbury.

Since the victory by President Mugabe in the March presidential poll in which he defeated the MDC leader, Mr Morgan Tsvangirai, by over 400 000 votes, Britain has been working with the MDC, some non-governmental organisations and the private media in destabilising the country.

Commenting on the letter by Mrs Bradbury, the Minister of State for Information and Publicity, Professor Jonathan Moyo, said the Government is aware that Britain is recruiting Zimbabweans into its army. Full Article
