The Commission of Inquiry which is conducting hearings into the post-election violence that rocked Harare and resulted in the death of 6 people after soldiers opened fire on unarmed civilians, will conduct hearings in Bulawayo on Friday and Gweru on Saturday.
Commission of Inquiry spokesperson Professor Lovemore Madhuku told The Chronicle they are conducting hearings outside Harare to give all Zimbabweans a chance to be heard. Said Madhuku:
The commission is coming to Bulawayo and not just Bulawayo but other areas to give opportunities for Zimbabweans outside Harare who may have something to say in respect to the terms of reference of the commission. They might be people outside Harare who may have witnessed what happened in Harare but are not based in Harare. We have freedom of movement in the country and because of freedom of movement the person might have been in Harare on August 1 or before that and after that.
In Bulawayo, the hearings will be conducted at Holiday Inn starting at 10AM while in Gweru they will be held at the Suburban Village on Saturday at 10AM.
