British MP Says Moreblessing Ali's Murder Is Meant To Scare The Opposition

British MP Says Moreblessing Ali's Murder Is Meant To Scare The Opposition

A British Member of Parliament (MP) Jonathan Oates has described the death of Moreblessing Ali, a Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) activist as murder meant to instil fear in the opposition.

Ali was kidnapped on the 24th of May, allegedly by her estranged boyfriend, Pius Jamba only to be found dead on the 11th of June. Her mutilated body was found in a well in the Nyatsime area.

The opposition CCC party accuses Simbarashe Chisango, who is a ZANU PF district chairperson in the Nyatsime area and a half-brother to the suspect, Jamba, of Ali’s disappearance and murder. In a statement published by Pindula News earlier, police say investigations are underway to establish what really transpired.

Oates a British Liberal Democrat politician and member of the House of Lords urged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to end violence if he genuinely wants to reengage the international community. He said:

Tragic news of the murder of Moreblessing Ali, reported as yet another political killing. My deepest condolences to family & friends. The history of political violence, abductions & murder is sadly a long one in Zimbabwe. If @edmnangagwa wants re-engagement he has to end this now.

The news of Moreblessing’s murder is symptomatic of attempts to instil fear in opposition supporters which have been increasingly evident. Today I tabled questions in the UK Parliament on this issue. If @edmnangagwa wants to reengage with the world. He needs to put a stop to this.

The ruling ZANU PF has denied involvement dismissing the matter as a case of domestic violence.

The interest on Zimbabwean affairs shown by British MPs is suspicious. Kwavo kutida here?
Do they show the same concerns for citizens in countries like Rwanda, Afghanistan, Palestine etc.Why are we so special?

The fact that the deceased and the perpetrators belong to different parties then there comes a political factor. Unless if you want us to know your party affiliation, then you can totally devorce a political factor from the incident. Even before Mobby's death, their alleged loved affair had some political conflict of interest in it. Only that love is blind, very blind to an extent that Mobby fell in love with a person from a different power house.

Hanzi na Lord Oates, "If @edmnangagwa wants to reengage with the world. He needs to put a stop to this." Period. Zvimwe mungango gwauta henyu but this condition will not change. Even if you will claim to look east, but moyo unenge uchingoda zveku West.

there is a lot of precedence interms of zanu pf murdering opposition figures, from gukurahundi where it was actually genocide (by the way the murderous still walk amongst us, some the helm of power), to the election violences and murders (eg 2008), to shooting unarmed zimbabweans in broad day light(2018 and 2019), jus a few examples coz maoko angatorwadza neku typer. imhondi idzo, Jehovah wehondo dai watopindira, ndiye wakati kutsiva ndekwangu

Let us all not castigate Lord Oates of the British Parliament. It is his interpretation/misinterpretation of the death of Moreblessing Ali. May I humbly implore leaderships of all political parties to eat, drink, walk, sleep and run peace at all their rallies

This British member of parliament is acting as if murders do not happen in his own country, he doesn't even know the place under consideration (Nyatsime) how it is an area prone to murders robberies rape etc, let us not policitise everything that happens how many Zanu Pf cadres have been murdered yet they don't make a molehill out of it.... Iwo warikutopa weapons to Ukraine give them false hope kuty Ukraine will win the war whilst they know that they just want to deplete Russia's ****nals at the expense of Ukrainian lives, hypocrites Rule your Britain let us Rule our Zimbabwe ....

Your own children and wife are suffering day and night but you keep on supporting Zanu pf. You should be ashamed of yourself. How can you insult one who is advocating for own peace and prosperity? Even if you hate and insult Lord Oates, still you will die a poor bustard.

Zvekunyika kwake anozviziva but only that your ED make them interested parties as your government goes by the "re-engagement mantra". Put your house (country) before you dream of that engagement.
