Dabengwa to confront Mugabe

Dabengwa to confront Mugabe
Published: 23 October 2017 (642 Views)
OPPOSITION Zapu President Dumiso Dabengwa plans to confront President Robert Mugabe over compensation for families of the 20,000 civilians killed during the 1980s Gukurahundi "madness" NewZimbabwe.co reported.

"One of the failures of the last 30 years which we shall tackle is putting closure to the tragic history surrounding Gukurahundi," said Dabengwa, a former home affairs minister in Mugabe's government.



The Zapu leader made the remarks in a speech he was supposed to deliver to families of Gukurahundi victims commemorations in Kezi Saturday which were however aborted.

"For a start, there has been no official apology for the unwarranted destruction of life and property of over 20 000 unarmed civilians by the security apparatus of the state," reads the speech.

"The unrepentant perpetrators of this crime against humanity have lost many opportunities to own up and to begin a healing process that starts with a sincere apology to families of victims, a program for redress including negotiated compensation even so late in the day."

Dabengwa said they would use the opposition forum to demand that Mugabe takes full responsibility for the Gukurahundi massacres.
