'Gukurahundi reports are not missing'

'Gukurahundi reports are not missing'
Published: 21 April 2019 (186 Views)
The National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) has dismissed reports that the Dumbutshena and Chihambakwe reports on the 1980s disturbances were lost.  

"The issue of the Chihambakwe and Dumbutshena reports was never discussed by the full Commission. It could be that Retired Justice Nare was either misquoted or was speaking in his personal capacity and not on behalf of the NPRC institution if indeed he said it." NPRC said in a statement.  

Media reports recently quoted NPRC Chairperson Justice Selo Nare saying the Commission was trying to locate the Chihambakwe and Dumbutshena reports into the Gukurahundi genocide that claimed more that 20 000 people.

"As a leader of the Commission my wish is to see justice prevailing and to amicably solve this problem that is dividing the nation." Nare was quoted saying. "It is unfortunate that the previous Commissions' reports have ben lost. Nonetheless, the government is still looking for the whereabouts of the Dumbutshena and Chihambakwe reports."  

The NPRC is currently conducting Public Hearings on the Gukurahundi massacre and they have encouraged Zimbabweans to be truthful and narrate everything that they witnessed during the massacres.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa recently told the nation that the issue of Gukurahundi is not a sacred matter and the nation must debate it publicly.

Some of Mnangagwa's aides including Deputy Minister Energy Mutodi and Presidential Spokesperson George Charamba have declared Gukurahundi as a war conducted by dissidents and the 5 Brigade.
