Speaking at the 17th Zanu-PF Annual National People’s Conference in Esigodini on Friday, president of the Chiefs’ Council, Chief Fortune Charumbira said chiefs can resolve the Gukurahundi issue.
Charumbira said commissions such as the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) which is mandated by the Constitution to lead the healing and reconciliation process in the country, had failed in other countries.Said Charumbira:
There is an issue of Gukurahundi that is always talked about. I want to say it in public that as chiefs we agreed that we must take over this issue. In Rwanda and other countries people fought but now there is peace, why do people in this country keep referring to the Gukurahundi issue? So we are now taking over. Give us a chance as chiefs, we are determined to work to bring closure to this issue. In Burundi and Rwanda the United Nations poured in millions of dollars and set up commissions made up of judges but it all failed. They then referred the issues to traditional chiefs. There is no United Nations that can solve your in-house issues, we can only solve them on our own.
