"No Shortcuts To Resolving Gukurahundi Matter"

Human rights activists say National Assembly Speaker, Jacob Mudenda, has exposed ZANU PF’s plan to use Gukurahundi as a campaign gimmick ahead of the 2023 elections.

This comes after Mudenda on Wednesday urged the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) to bring closure to the Gukurahundi issue before the 2023 elections.

However, human rights activist, Dumisani Nkomo, said there is no political will to address Gukurahundi. He said:

NPRC has been in place for almost 10 years and has done nothing to address Gukurahundi. What will make it address it now?

Ibhetshu LikaZulu co-ordinator Mbuso Fuzwayo said that the Government is not serious about resolving the matter and is just playing with people’s emotions. Said Fuzwayo:

One minute they talk about chiefs addressing it, while we are looking at chiefs, they now talk about the commission.

It clearly tells you they are just playing with people’s emotions, buying time and giving people false hope.

Since 2018, has Parliament ever received a report from the commission? He can’t talk about them resolving the genocide in a year when in four years they have not done anything.

Human rights advocate Effie Ncube said there are no shortcuts to resolving Gukurahundi. He said:

Gukurahundi genocide cannot be addressed in the remaining few months before the elections.

Not only do perpetrators lack the political will to succeed, but also they are just seeking political campaign capital and not truth and justice which are the goals of victims and survivors.

The resolution of the Gukurahundi genocide will take far longer than the sham shortcut to nowhere that the government has in mind.

Genuine processes take years of digging for the truth and dispensing justice.

Gukurahundi is a term used to refer to the military operation in Matabeleland and Midlands in the 1980s which resulted in the deaths of an estimated 20 000 Ndebele people.

The issue can only be solved by people who were not involved. Perpetrators of Gugurahundi can not solve it

We know most of these so called human rights activists and organizations are benefifitng financially from this that's why they'll never allow the government to address this matter conclusively. They will always oppose and try to disrail all efforts being made to finalise this matter.
