Rebellious war veterans must be beaten for opposing President Mugabe: Minister Dinha

Mashonaland Central Provincial Affairs Minister Martin Dinha suggested that rebellious war veterans must be captured, stripped and beaten at army barracks for opposing President Robert Mugabe. Dinha even volunteered to do some of the beatings.

Said Dinha:

People here (Mashonaland Central) support ZANU-PF and President Mugabe, they are not like rogue war veterans and some youths who are moving around attacking the President and the First Lady,” said Dinha in an audio clip in possession of this publication.

They should all be rounded up and taken to army barracks where they should be stripped and beaten thoroughly until they repent. We cannot tolerate the level of indiscipline that they have exhibited,” he is further heard saying, drawing applauses from some people present at the meeting.

We have senior military people here, I think they are listening. I can even volunteer to do some of the beating if they require my services

However, when contacted by the Financial Gazette, Dinha said the comments were not to be taken seriously as they were meant to captivate the crowd.
