"The defence and security services come before you to pronounce the end of Operation Restore Legacy," Zimbabwe National Army commander Phillip Valerio Sibanda told journalists.

"Normalcy has now returned to our country. We want to thank all Zimbabweans for their support, patience and understanding during the five weeks of Operation Restore Legacy," he added.

I've read little about poor Zimbabwe, but analyses have not exactly been positive about prospects for a government committed to the wellbeing of its people.
