Mutodi Avoid Arrest Over ‘Xenophobic’ Video

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has refused to press charges against a ZANU PF legislator, Energy Mutodi following his declaration on social media that Ndebele people are refugees.

At the height of the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Mutodi posted a video on Twitter where he claimed that Zimbabwe was taking care of three million (Ndebele) refugees from South Africa.

A Matabeleland-based secessionist political party, Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) recently pressed criminal charges of violent incitement against Mutodi at the Bulawayo Central Police Station, claiming that Mutodi’s remarks were likely to spark xenophobic attacks against the Ndebeles. Police, however, refused to open a docket.

MRP’s lawyer, Dumisani Dube said they intend to take the case to the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) to seek redress.
