Finally – Bulawayo Prophet Exposed Mnangagwa over Gukurahundi Massacre and How to Ask For Forgivenes
AN article published by the State-run Chronicle in 1983 during the height of the Matabeleland and Midlands killings believed to have been State-sponsored reveals that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa uttered berating statements that incited the blood bath.
The provocative statements are contained in former minister David Coltart’s autobiography “The Struggle Continues: 50 years of Tyranny in Zimbabwe”.
“Cde Mnangagwa said in the campaign against dissidents, it was necessary to destroy the infrastructure that nurtured bandits,” the publication claimed them quoting the VP who was defence minister then:
“Have ever you asked yourself why there are no dissidents in many places such as Matabeleland?”
Validating Coltart’s claims, Mnangagwa is further quoted in the publication as saying:
“I want to warn again that the choice is yours to live in peace and work with Government for the success of this country…”
But in the Herald newspaper today, Mnangagwa seemed to hint the likelihood of filing a lawsuit against the allegations yet there is ample evidence beyond written records supporting the claims against the VP.
“The Vice President’s legal practitioners are currently perusing David Coltart’s autobiography to ascertain the accuracy of the report before considering appropriate action to be taken to address these false and malicious statements,” the VP is quoted as saying in Herald
