In an interview, Presidential spokesperson George Charamba said President Mnangagwa does not require pressure from social media users to release the Motlanthe Commission report.
Charamba who is also the Deputy Chief Secretary (Presidential Communications) said Mnangagwa will follow processes and formalities laid down in the law. He said Mnangagwa had already pledged to make the report public before he chose Commissioners. Said Charamba.
Zimbabweans must cool it and take it easy. There is no need for excitement. Let us avoid the feat of crossing the river when we are still at the summit of a hill. I sit in several meetings involving emissaries of foreign Governments and more particularly involving the President and the UN Secretary General. In all those meetings, the President made an undertaking that both processes and outcomes of the Commission will be an open affair. That was well before Commissioners had even been identified, certainly well before the Commission had been sworn in. He does not need any modicum of motivation by Twimbos to do the right thing. It’s a decision which he took a long time ago well before the Commission was constituted. That decision and commitment does not trash processes and formalities of receiving and digesting the findings of the Commission. That was the gist of my intervention all of which was conveyed in simple, comprehensible English. The current furore over the issue is doubly needless in that it misreads a simple communication from Government. Secondly, it elides time and processes.
