By A Correspondent | Brigadier General (Retired) Fidelis Satuku has died.
He was 64.
Satuku died at the HQ 3 Brigade Camp Hospital in Mutare yesterday after a long battle with a kidney ailment.
Sources told ZimEye of how the late brigadier was forced out of the military by the current Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
He was kicked out of service after the wikileaks cables cited him for allegedly participating in secret-meetings with the US embassy in 2012, one source said.
Chiwenga himself is notorious for leaking state secrets to China.
The reports went viral during the late President Robert Mugabe’s presidency.
Another source added saying:
“Chiwenga forced him out and he did not get one rank up on retirement.
Brigadiers and above are automatically declared National Heroes.
On this one its a wait and see.”
