The Commission of Inquiry into the August 1 Zimbabwe post election violence that rocked Harare says the inquiries are going on well with 124 witnesses having testified so far from three judicial regions.
Commission’s chairperson and former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe speaking during a press conference in Mutare commended the people of Manicaland and Zimbabwe for overwhelmingly giving testimonies giving assurance that no one will be intimidated for testifying during the hearings.
13 people gave their testimonies during the public hearing in Mutare today.
“The commission is happy with the public hearing attendance and pledged to take into consideration all the submissions by witnesses,” he said.
Providing evidence on the circumstances surrounding the violence, a number of witnesses indicated that the message by the MDC Alliance president Nelson Chamisa publicly stating that he will not accept the outcome of the results if he loses is a reflection that the violent demonstration was premeditated.
The witnesses said the behaviour exhibited by the MDC Alliance leader was in sharp contrast to his political opponent President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s calls for peace and unity.
“The MDC Alliance leader is on record that we will march to the State House if we don’t win as well as threatening to employ unspecified actions if he loses the elections,” said Mr Motlanthe.
A call for the commission to look into the issues without bias was made and the commission assured the public that due diligence will be made on all issues.
