Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) has claimed that President Mnangagwa’s undertakings with regards to Gukurahundi are calculated at dividing the people of Matebeleland.
The party was responding to allegations by the President’s spokesperson George Charamba that some groups invested in Gukurahundi.
MRP President Mqondisi Moyo said:
Mnangagwa is also dividing the people of Matabeleland as we are aware that Chief Maduna and Chief Ndiweni wrote to the UN and other stakeholders about the genocide, hence the engagement of the CSOs by Mnangagwa is trying to avoid issues raised by the chiefs who have the mandate of people and these atrocities took place in the jurisdictions of the chiefs.
They are better placed to address the genocide issue since they are apolitical.
Although Charamba did not mention the names of political parties he termed Gukurahundi activists, Moyo seems to have belived that Charamba was pointing at MRP. Moyo responded:
The utterances by Charamba are unfounded and baseless. We have always wanted an international independent commission to handle the genocide issue not the government because they are the direct perpetrators and anything that is done by the government on the genocide is just a smokescreen.
People like us will never use the genocide as a political campaign gimmick issue instead we want truth, and justice over this matter.
