Gutu: Gukurahundi A Very Small, Tiny Fraction Of What PRC’s Discussing

National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) chairman Obert Gutu Tuesday said Gukurahundi is a very small, tiny fraction of the various other disputes the commission was discussing.

He said while there was always talk about Gukurahundi, a massacre of approximately 20 000 civilians in Midlands and Matabeleland in the 1980s, as the only issue, the commission was also seeking to resolve many other complex issues.

Gukurahundi, committed by the government, has divided the nation since the 80s. Survivors and relatives of victims of the massacres are demanding reparations while some other stakeholders are calling for the establishment truth and justice commission to gather what really transpired.

They argue that the nation will not heal if there is no closure to the case. To date, some of the survivors still find it difficult to get identification documents such as birth certificates and identity cards.

  1. My grandfather used to tell ugly stories about Madzviti.He would give the etymology of why the colonial district commissioner or native commissioner was called “mudzviti”. This was correctly
    derived from Mzilikazi illegal army in our land. They committed atrocities which also need attention not only Gukurahundi issue. Hence the learned view by Cde Gutu. Yes we need reconciliation that is wholesome, not parochial and political nonsense, in my learned view. Those who agitate for reparations must define the extent of such reparations, and ask themselves ” cui bono”? Who is going to explain the genesis and aims of dissidents atrocities and the government army then? We need a balanced research on our national history in our quest to build and unite our nation. Nation building needs sober brains and not emotional outbursts aimed at deviding our peace loving people. I speak as one of the liberation heroes whi saw services against the Rhodesian colonial regime. Amen!
