In a statement yesterday, Secretary for Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Mrs Virginia Mabhiza confirmed that the Commission of Inquiry into the August 1 post-election violence resumes public hearings today.
The hearings start at 10AM and will be held in Harare at Cresta Lodge. MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa is expected to testify before the commission after he was invited to give testimony. Chamisa initially refused the call, arguing that the Commission should invite Mnangagwa and Chiwenga first since in his view they were the ones who deployed the soldiers into the streets. He however agreed to appear before the Commission of Inquiry if certain conditions were met.
