Nelson Chamisa, MDC leader, has offered to assist president Mnangagwa apologise for the Gukurahundi massacres that took place on the aftermath of independence in Midlands and Matebeleland.
Addressing a Workers Day event organised by the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) in Harare, Wednesday, Chamisa said that there is need for the president to apologise to the affected persons. He said:
There will never be peace in this country unless we resolve the Gukurahundi issue. You cannot circumvent the matter by using the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) to mediate.
No, you need a bottom up approach but the first thing is for Mnangagwa to apologise to the people of Zimbabwe for what happened in this country. Without an apology you can’t repent, we can’t repent if we are not willing to say the truth.
Chamisa further indicated that he is willing apologise on behalf of Mnangagwa. He said:
You must apologise. If you (Mnangagwa) are not capable, come to me, I can assist you. I can apologise on your behalf, whilst you instruct me on what exactly you need to say to the people.
I will say it out for the sake of progress.
It is reported that a North Korean trained 5th Brigade was unleashed by the then Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe into the western parts of the country where it tortured and killed approximately 20 000 civilians. Mnangagwa is implicated by virtue of having been the Defence Forces Minister during that time.
