Mutasa wanted Mugabe tried at ICC over Gukurahundi

Mutasa wanted Mugabe tried at ICC over Gukurahundi
Published: 16 July 2019 (192 Views)
Former ZANU PF Central Committee member from Manicaland Muntsa Mutasa told a United States Ambassador in 2008 that America must make sure the then President Robert Mugabe was tried for treason the Gukurahundi genocide.

The report by the Ambassador which is contained in cable number: 08HARARE231_a is as follows:

Mutasa recommended harsh sanctions against Zimbabwe if  Mugabe is declared president and also asked the Ambassador whether the USG had an influence on the International Criminal  Court (ICC) to issue a warrant for Mugabe's arrest based on the Matabeleland massacres of the 1980s; he said Mugabe feared prosecution. Reiterating that "Mugabe has to go,"

Mutasa let drop that a group of "concerned individuals" had decided to take steps to remove him and Mutasa had been tasked with procuring the necessary "material" to do the job.

Without noting when the plan was hatched or who the participants were, he said he was still in possession of the material.


The current President Emmerson Mnangagwa who was instrumental in the implementation of the genocide has stretched his hands to the affected communities to sit down and find a lasting solution to the dark patch in Zimbabwe's history.
