Zimbabwe Army begins disarming guerrillas
Salisbury, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe's national Army has begun disarming rebellious guerrillas after violent factional clashes in the southwestern city of Bulawayo last week. Witnesses said the Army removed six Soviet-supplied T-54 tanks from a battle camp near Bulawayo occupied by minority leader Joshua Nkomo's Zimbabwe African People's Revolutionary Army forces.
Last week ZIPRA fought a series of battles with Zimbabwe African National Liberation Army troops loyal to Prime Minister Robert Mugabe, both within the Army and at guerrilla encampments in Bulawayo's Entumbane Township. Under cease-fire terms, the factions were separated and Mr. Mugabe said all 22,000 guerrillas w aiting to join the national Army would be disarmed.
