ZCTU Files Criminal Charges Against The Army, Says Soldiers Fired Into Its Offices

 

Labour union, the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has filed a police report against the Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) alleging that soldiers fired into its offices at Gorlon House on August 1. At least six people are reported to have died that same die after the army fired live bullets into protesters and bystanders following a protest by opposition supporters. ZCTU secretary general Japhet Moyo told New Zimbabwe,

We made a report of an incident that happened at our offices on the 1st of August 2018, where soldiers pumped live rounds of ammunition at the second and third floors of our offices. What we found strange was that we were asked whether we knew who exactly fired the bullets and when we said it was the army, the officer who attended to us then said it was improper to just mention an institution but we should have a name of the person responsible, otherwise they treat the perpetrators as “unknown.”

  1. So how come they don’t have the demonstrators as “unknown” cause they don’t have their names? This system is full of jokers.
