Alliance for the People’s Agenda (APA) presidential candidate Nkosana Moyo has issued a press statement extending his condolences to the families of people who were shot by soldiers yesterday.
Moyo also took the time to blame President Mnangagwa and MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa for not committing themselves to peaceful elections by failing to attend the Peace Pledge signing ceremony even though they sent representatives. Moyo also said both Chamisa and Mnangagwa will sacrifice Zimbabweans in their quest for power.
We publish Moyo’s full statement below:
Fellow Zimbabweans, we in APA send our heartfelt condolences to the families of those people who were gunned down so needlessly and most inappropriately yesterday. Hopefully, even as the wounds of these events are still so fresh, we will take time to reflect on what we should take away from this as a nation. Who are the perpetrators of this heinous act?
Leading up to the elections, leaden of political parties were called to a couple of events where they were requested to commit themselves to peaceful elections.
Both ED and NC did not attend.
I recall feeling then that they actually were not going to commit. In their view, Zimbabwean lives can be and will be sacrificed in their quest for their personal gain. I would hope that in retrospect we can now see that the signs were there all along but some of us just chose not to heed them.
Hopefully as we soldier on, we will remember that part of what the history of particular people offers us is a reflection of what they are likely to do in the future!
Above all else we should also take away the fact that, at the end of the day, we are responsible for the choices we make.
