According to an army radio signal print out seen by The Zimbabwean, a senior army official; two Major Generals, six Brigadiers and 30 Colonels are being named for engineering the massacre of the former opposition MDC members. The following names are among those on the list:
Major Generals E.A Rugeje, and Chebundo
Air Vice Marshal Muchena, Basutu
Brigadier generals Sigauke, SB Moyo, Khumalo, Nyikayaramba, Shungu, and Tarumbwa.
“It was established that MDC youths have been called to Harvest house with a view of organizing a march to state house in order to declare Morgan Tsvangirai as the president. The District JOC resolved to monitor MDC youths by establishing road blocks and other security agents and feed back to SY JOC. It has also been established that former white farmers whose farms were taken for resettlement are coming back from as far as Australia. CID and CIO were tasked to monitor, investigate and follow up and advise the district security JOC,” reads some of the printed radio signals.
According to the official who revealed the names of these senior officials, they were the commanders of the bases set up around the country to cause terror to villagers. In its report, the CZC demanded that those senior officers who instigated and took part in the political violence and violation of human rights, should face justice. “The ministry of Defence and Home Affairs are challenged to prove that the military have moved out of the villages and communities, were they stand accused of committing human rights abuses with impunity while they acted as political commissars of the then ruling Zanu (PF) party,” the report said.Post published in: News
