Calls for security sector reforms may have begun to bear fruits with the coming in of the New Dispensation after Operation Restore Legacy, Renewal Democrats of Zimbabwe (RDZ) leader, Elton Mangoma, said.

According to NewZimbabwe.com, Mangoma said, "The first thing that the new ZDF boss, Valerio Sibanda, did was to call his soldiers back to the barracks and announce the end of Operation Restore Legacy," said Mangoma in an interview.

"I am also told that he (Sibanda) refused to send his soldiers to the country's borders and monitor the importation of basic commodities which has seen prices rising 100% in the last three months."

Mangoma added, "This shows that Sibanda is a professional soldier whose track record has not been tarnished by being involved in partisan politics and we hope he will not change to serve the interests of Zanu-PF like his predecessor Chiwenga.

"Who will forget Chihuri's public announcement that he supports Mugabe and Zanu-PF and how he dealt with cases involving opposition supporters in favour of ruling party supporters who were perpetrators of violence?"
