President Emmerson Mnangagwa has promoted Major General David Sigauke as the Zimbabwe National Army Commander.

He replaces Edzai Chimonyo who died recently.

His elevation sees him become a Lieutenant General.

Sigauke has been acting ZNA commander most of the time during Chimonyo’s illness, it has not advantaged him.

Major General Sigauke has been Acting ZNA Commander.

For all intents & purposes, he has been acting in that role for quite some time because the late Commander, Lt General Chimonyo, was ill for most of his ill-fated tenure.

Meanwhile, former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo said Mnangagwa in making the appointment was motivated by role played during the Gukurahundi killings.
