Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly reassured Zimbabweans that he would make public the report by a commission of inquiry into the post-election violence that left at least six people dead on August 1.
Mnangagwa said this while speaking to heads of foreign missions in the country at a re-alignment workshop.
The report quoted Mnangagwa as saying that the “hearings were done in public, so the report would be shared in public”.
Mnangagwa’s remarks followed a public outcry after his spokesperson George Charamba claimed in the state-owned Chronicle newspaper that the report was for Mnangagwa’s “eyes only” and that its publication would be his “prerogative”.
University of Zimbabwe law professor Lovemore Madhuku, who was one of the commissioners, was cited as saying that the president was bound by his promise to make the report public.
