Zpra veterans blast govt over civilian shooting in Harare
Published: 17 August 2018 (104 Views)
The Zpra Veterans Association secretary general Petros Sibanda has blasted the government over the recent shooting of suspected MDC Alliance protestors in Harare which led to the killing of seven people when the military was deployed on the streets.

"It is regrettable that lives were lost in the fateful day of shooting of the unarmed civilians. In a democratic country demonstrations are a human right and masses are free to do so. However, the sad part is that someone gave an order that resulted in that shooting. That person who gave the order must be held responsible for the death of the seven people," Sibanda said.

"The President elect on Heroes day should have apologised on behalf of the shooter but he does not show contrition or remorse. It sums up that he too the President elect wanted to demonstrate that they just can kill if they want. Zimbabwe is no longer a safe space."
