Former Presidential Guard Commander, Anselem Sanyatwe, Weds

Former Presidential Guard Commander, Anselem Sanyatwe, Weds

Former Presidential Guard commander, retired Brigadier-General Anselem Sanyatwe will tie the knot with Nyanga North MP Chido Sanyatwe (ZANU PF) on Saturday, 06 August.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been invited to be the guest of honour at the wedding which will take place at the Roman Catholic Church’s Regina Coeli Mission.

Chido confirmed the wedding when contacted for comment by NewsDay. She said:

Yes, the wedding is on tomorrow and I am encouraging drivers to be cautious on our roads. Preparations are at an advanced stage.

Sanyatwe, who is Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to Tanzania, flew into the country this week from Dar es Salaam ahead of the wedding.

Top army officials and ZANU PF bigwigs are set to attend the wedding.

Sanyatwe married Chido under traditional custom in 2000 before having a court wedding in 2004.

Both are members of the Roman Catholic Church and according to the rules of the church, they need to have a white wedding in the church.

1 August 2018 army shootings

As commander of the Presidential Guard, Sanyatwe was the tactical commander of the force deployed on 1 August 2018 to disperse protestors who were demonstrating over the perceived delay in announcing the results of the 30 July elections.

The soldiers used live ammunition on fleeing protestors and innocent bystanders resulting in the death of six and injuries to dozens.

In February 2019, Sanyatwe retired from the military and was appointed ambassador to Tanzania in the same month.

In 2020, the United States imposed sanctions on Sanyatwe and on former State Security minister Owen Ncube, accusing them of human rights abuses.

They will wed standing at 45 degrees, and their cake will be decorated with 6 AK47 bullets. It will be cut with an AK rifle sword. Deco will be all Zanu pf regalia while all males will be required to wear scarfs. Those wearing yellow are definitely not welcome.

I will not forget the name Sanyarwe not for good reasons, but for bad reasons. As explained in Pindula account, he was the Commander of Presidential Guard whose unit killed 6 people in the streets of Harare on 1 August 2918.

Sanyatwe was quickly retired and appointed Zimbabwe Ambassador to the Republic of Tanzania. Perpetrators of that heinous crime of murder have not been tried 4 years down the line despite the recommendations by Kgalema Molanthe Commission. May the souls of the 6 murdered citizens rest in eternal peace !!!!!

I would have joined Sanyatwe in the joyous celebration of his wedding, but alas, I will remain in the doldrums mourning with the relatives of those slain comrades.

I wonder why there was a Montlante commission because of six people of different homesteads at home 13 people were killed during Gugurahundi and added the number of others to more than 20000 people but till today there no commission of enquiry

@Mdara Idza and @Welly, Mike Auret of the Catholic Commission for Peace and Justice (CCPJ) also undertook a Mission about Gukurahundi and presented the report to Mugabe who remained mum on the subject.

Uri **** iwe, Chihambakwe and Dumbutshena Commission of Inquiries were set up to investigate the Gukurahundi atrocities, Mugabe said the commission reports went missing, and that notion has been maintained by his successor. Unobvunza kana usiri kuziva
