They argued the timing of Charamba’s claims was suspicious as it came when the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) has just begun consultative meetings on Gukurahundi and other past human rights violations. Charamba, in an opinion piece published in a local weekly, said Mnangagwa was then “just a ministerial minion” with no capacity to commandeer the army to conduct the atrocities, but opposition…

Mugabe political return muddies waters

Politics in this country is getting murkier, uglier, funnier and very interesting. There have never been such interesting times since the meteoric rise of a strong opposition at the turn of the new millennium. The dynamics are changing, alliances formed and broken, political bases reduced to ashes, men and women of high esteem exposed and left naked. Such are the times. The entry of New Patriotic Front (NPF) into the fray has muddied the waters, further necessitating the realignment of political alliances. What is particularly interesting is the emergence of…
