In a statement, President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he had ordered the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to investigate the murder of a two year old boy in Glendale.
Mnangagwa also extended his condolences to the boy’s family. Said Mnangagwa:
I am shocked and appalled by the horrific murder of two-year-old Professor Lumbe this weekend in Glendale. My sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with Professor’s parents Rambai and Nomatter, and the entire family in this difficult time. There can be no such wanton acts of violence, let alone against children. We as a society must categorically reject all violence. I have instructed the police to investigate this heinous crime as a matter of urgency, to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
Police Chief spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba said that a postmortem had confirmed the boy was murdered. She also confirmed that the father of the minor was a member of the National People’s Party and its candidate for Mazowe in the July 30 elections.
