Mnangagwa Reading From His Gukurahundi Script By Saying Rape Reports Were Stage-managed – Jonathan Moyo

The former Minister for Higher and Tertiary Education, Jonathan Moyo has castigated President Emmerson Mnangagwa for suggesting that reports of women being raped by soldiers during the January protests were stage-managed. Writing on social media on Monday, Moyo said:

Mnangagwa has always blamed victims of his brutality as the authors of their misery. Here he is reading from his #gukurahundi script, claiming that the victims of State atrocities, PRE-PLANNED the atrocities unleashed upon them by the Army, Police, CIO & Zanu-PF gangs in January!

In an interview with a French channel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where he is attending the 32nd African Union Summit, Mnangagwa said:

With regards to the allegations of rape, we have both through print media, radio and TV appealed to those victims to come forward, report to the nearest police station.

If you are not comfortable to report to the nearest police station you go to the nearest church and report the abuse you underwent. We have only one single case that has come up in Chitungwiza.

The rest, we now know that the women who were paraded was just make up by some organisations and some of the women have now left the country, have been shipped to the United Kingdom.

The few who are still in the country are being moved from house to house and we are trying to track them down. Its all stage managed. We are challenging anybody, local or foreign to produce the women so the world can see them and say this is what happened.

  2. A house divided falls you stupid idiots. You think this is about Shona or Ndebele? Zimbabwe is struggling because a nationwide development program is discriminatory. Gugurawunde has never been resolved. Atrocities committed had nothing to do with conquering of one tribe or another. There was no war being fought but an army descending upon unarmed and defenceless villagers in order to suppress and oppress any oposition.
