ED Expresses “Deep Concern And Strongly Condemns” Attacks On Civilians

Zimbabwe President, HE Emmerson Mnangagwa, in his capacity as the chairman of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation has denounced attacks on civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) by Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) a rebel group in Uganda and DRC.

Reports suggest that the attacks resulted in the death of about 80 civilians thereby triggering the violent demonstrations against United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO) peacekeepers.

In a statement, Mnangagwa expressed condolences to the government and the People of DRC, as well as the bereaved families. Part of the statement reads:

The attacks in Beni have resulted in the death of approximately 80 people, as well as the injury and displacement of many people.

SADC is resolute in voicing its condemnation of the attacks that the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) continue to perpetrate on the civilian population in the DRC.

These remarks have attracted criticism from Zimbabwean observers who said that Mnangagwa was “hypocritical” since he “unleashed a reign of terror” on civilians back home.

Analysts also observed that the democratic space in Zimbabwe has been diminishing lately.

  1. I wonder why this murderer does not denounce attacks by Zim Army and Police on civilians who are peacefully protesting in the streets of the capital Harare!!!!!! This is his own country – why denounce it when it happens in another country which is of no concern or use to Zim?

  2. Zimbos are fools. A group of thugs gather to cause havoc in the CBD and they get a good beat then you compare that with the murder of 80 people by bandits. These so called learned zimbos are a heap of shit.
