Mnangagwa Should Apologize For 2008 Violence: MDC Alliance

The Nelson Chamisa led Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to apologize for the political violence orchestrated by the ruling Zanu PF and military in the run up to the June 2017 2008 Presidential elections run off saying failure to do so will prove his incapacity to lead Zimbabwe.
Speaking to 263Chat, MDC Alliance principal and Harare East aspiring parliamentarian, Tendai Biti said Mnangagwa should take responsibility of the 2008 political violence that left more than 300 opposition members dead while hundreds were injured.
“It should not have happened from the start and the perpetrators including Emmerson Mnangagwa should apologize, failure to do so will be a reflection that he is not fit to lead this country,” said Biti.

Progressive Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (PTUZ) President, Takavafira Zhou weighed in saying, “27 June marks a dark period in Zimbabwe’s history as it reminds us of the brutality, murder and general violation of human rights in Zimbabwe by Zanu PF.

“As we remember more than 300 MDC supporters who died, the blood of the departed must continue to water our spirit of liberty and as we also have forthcoming elections we must always remember 27 June and honour those who died in pursuit democracy by voting a legitimate party in the form of MDC Alliance.”
