British Minister ‘Sickened’ By Reports Of Rape By Soldiers, Calls On Mnangagwa To Deal With The Perpetrators

United Kingdom’s joint Minister of State at the Foreign Office and Department for International Development, Harriet Baldwin has urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to ensure soldiers who raped women during the ongoing violent crackdown on protesters are brought to justice.

Baldwin, who is also Member of Parliament for West Worcestershire, was reacting to a report by iTV news where a Zimbabwean woman named Melody narrated her ordeal at the hands of soldiers. Melody said she was raped by two soldiers while her children watched. Said Baldwin:

SICKENED BY @ITV REPORTS THAT ZIMBABWE’S SECURITY FORCES HAVE RAPED CIVILIANS DURING THEIR VIOLENT CRACKDOWN. SEXUAL VIOLENCE IS AN ATROCITY AND WHO IS COMMANDING THESE FORCES? THE UK URGES @EDMNANGAGWA TO ENSURE THESE PERPETRATORS ARE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.

  1. It will be good if those rapists are caught, we have problems of some hooligans who masquerade as security personnel. The truth will be revealed once they are caught and justice should prevail whether they soldiers, police officers or civilians.

  2. i just dont Trust stuff that comes from the Brits ! remember these guys are just after regime change. i stand to be corrected though once all facts are verified , but for now i just dont agree with this News. Sorry Sir Baldwin ! for now you and your fellow Brits are public Enemy # 1. we know you are even behind all this mess so please until we know for sure – just Shut Up. beside you have a lot on your hands with Brexit and all – and Zim is not even a Commonwealth state anymore so Hands off please . deal with your issues First – atrocities committed since the late 1700 towards Africa , you still have our Leaders Heads & bodies mummified in England & France . why not just return our Continental treasures. your museums in Europe are filled with loot stolen from Africa. We even have proof of large scale Rape of African women here in Arcadia Harare !
