Chamisa Hasn't Filed Assassination Attempt Report - NPRC

Chamisa Hasn't Filed Assassination Attempt Report - NPRC

The National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) has said the MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa was yet to file a report on alleged assassination attempts. 

MDC Alliance reported late last month that there were two attempts by suspected ZANU PF members to assassinate Chamisa during his visit to Masvingo, Manicaland and Mashonaland West. 

The party also reported that Chamisa’s convoy was attacked in Masvingo and Nyanga where he had gone to conduct rural outreach programmes to garner support ahead of the 2023 elections. 

Zanu PF acting spokesperson Mike Bimha has denied the alleged attacks, while acting party political commissar Patrick Chinamasa claimed that Chamisa was attacked because he provoked ZANU PF supporters.

NPRC deputy chairperson Lilian Chigwedere Monday said the commission was yet to investigate the matter as Chamisa had not reported the cases. 

Chigwedere told NewsDay on the sidelines of the commission’s preventive dialogue meeting held in Harare that the NPRC investigation team was on standby. She said:

With regards to elections, these discussions we are having here are meant to come up with different ways of dealing with election-related conflicts.  With regards to the clashes, that is a conflict that is already taking place. As a commission, the way we work is that we send our investigation team to find out what is exactly taking place.

While we are doing this (discussions), we are in the process of getting a team. But our team usually goes to do investigations if there have been reports made to the commission. We just don’t say there is a conflict and rush to do investigations. No one has come to the commission with a complaint. We are just hearing it from the media, but as a commission, we are just putting our team on standby.

She said there was a need for the NPRC, together with peace committee members, to work towards curtailing the recurrence of political violence in the country.

Chigwedere urged the government and citizens to work together to end political conflict.

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO COMMENT ON THE NPRC'S INACTION IN THE INVESTIGATIONS OF THE ALLEGED ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON THE LIFE OF PRESIDENT CHAMISA OF MDC ALLIANCE. NPRC ADMITS THAT IT WAS AWARE THAT THERE WERE REPORTS TO THAT EFFECT, BUT HAD NOT STARTED INVESTIGATIONS SINCE MDC ALLIANCE HAD NOT MADE A FORMAL COMPLAINT.

HOWEVER, THAT IS A DEPARTURE FROM NORMAL INVESTIGATIVE PROCEDURES WORLDWIDE. WORLDWIDE POLICE INVESTIGATE REPORTS FROM ANY , INFORMERS, SOCIAL MEDIA, FORMAL MEDIA AND COMPLAINANTS, INCLUSIVE.

AN INFORMER IS PROTECTED BY LAW. A POLICE OFFICER MAY REFUSE TO IDENTIFY THE NAME OF HIS INFORMER IN AN OPEN COURT OF LAW IF HE KNOWS THAT IF THE INFORMER IS UDENTIFIED HIS LIFE SHALL BE ENDANGERED.

IT WILL BE UPTO THE PRESIDING MAGISTRATE TO GIVE A DECISION WHETHER TO ORDER THE POLICEMAN TO IDENTIFY HIS INFORMER, WHICH IS RARE, OR TO ORDER THAT THE COURT GOES INTO CAMERA, WHERE THE PUBLIC IS NOT ADMITTED.

IN THIS CASE I AM NOT PRIVY TO THE NPRC'S INVESTIGATION TEMPLATE. IT COULD BE THAT THEY INVESTIGATE ONLY CASES BROUGHT TO THEIR ATTENTION BY COMPLAINANTS. IN ANY CASE, FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROGRESS AND EXPEDIENCY, MDC ALLIANCE SHOULD REPORT FORMALLY TO NPRC.
