Situated just 15km from the border post, Musina Compassion Refugee Centre is a haven of hope for refugees from across the African continent.
“There is an increase in the number of Zimbabweans claiming to be victimised for voting for the MDC,” Sithole said. “Very few of them are wounded but a lot seem to be traumatised and we have to arrange counselling for them. We need support to manage these escalating numbers because now we have more than 8,000 Zimbabweans at the centre and most of them are sleeping in the open.”
Analyst Masimba Dube said Zimbabweans should not rely on the international community for their safety.
“African Union and SADC have proved to be useless in solving human rights abuses perpetrated against vulnerable citizens by Zanu (PF) and its security chiefs. We all know there is a big problem in the country and we must come under one umbrella and fight for a better country and stop seeking refuge from countries where we are not wanted.”Post published in: News
