Speaking to the publication, an officer at one of the NGOs working with the Department of Social Welfare to ensure the children’s safety confirmed the development. Said the officer:
Yes, I can confirm that several people clad in expensive suits have visited the minors’ place of residence looking for them and threatening to take revenge for the slain soldier.
The children were living in fear for their lives so we had to take them. Right now I cannot tell you the exact place we are keeping them because we are shifting them from one safe house to another around the country.
We remain baffled as to why men of such calibre had to hunt down minors.
The children allegedly killed Aaron Bhasopayi of One Commando Regiment as they were defending their mother who was being assaulted by Bhasopayi. Bhasopoyi was accusing the minor children’s mother as he was accusing her of touching his parent’s home in Masvingo.
