“Stop Lying And Tell The World The Truth That You Killed Civilians”: Former Husband To Grace Mugabe Tells Army Boss

First husband to the former first lady Dr Grace Mugabe Stanley Goreraza has implored army general Valerio Philip Sibanda and police boss Commissioner General Godwin Matanga to take responsibility and stop lying that the MDC killed 6 people on August 1.

Goreraza blasted General Sibanda and Commissioner Matanga for their “unprofessional lies which they submitted to the August 1 Commission” adding that such lies were reflective that they were Zanu Pf sympathisers.

Said Goreraza:
“It’s very concerning that the police and military can go before a Commission of inquiry and unashamedly lie to the Commission whilst serving their submissions on political plates.

Very very unprofessional of Phillip Valerio Sibanda and Godwin Matanga. They did not even try to hide their bias which was plain to see.
Stop Lying And Tell The World The Truth That You Killed Civilians
Sibanda and Matanga made political pronouncements which made them sound like Zanupf officials defending their party.

It was not for them to decide and determine which political party was responsible for the violence. That is not their job. Theirs was to explain what transpired on the 1st of August without going political like they did.

The Zec Chair, Priscilla Chigumba, blamed the Army for the deaths of those 6 unarmed civilians. The Army was not responsible for the outbreak of violence in the city but they are responsible for the deaths of those 6 poor souls whom they needlessly shot.

They could have and should have fired warning shots into the air that would have certainly dispersed the rioters without loss of life.

To say the Mdc shot those innocent civilians is being creative, taking the truth and creating something false out of it. People were shot and killed. That is the truth. And out of that truth Sibanda and Matanga create fiction to cover their own backs.

The ballistics report was clear. Unless the Mdc has the world’s first high velocity weapons holding holsters which conceal automatic rifles, they are no way responsible for those deaths.
The deaths of those 6 people were not caused by handguns which can be concealed on one’s person, No. They were as a result of automatic weapons fire which cannot be concealed on one’s person because of their size. The only party in possession of those weapons that day was the Army.

If indeed the Mdc had shot those people then the police, CIO and MID would have been mercilessly on them left right and center.

They would have made many arrests and hunted down the shooters fearing the Mdc had weapons of war. From the 2nd of August, the Mdc would have had sleepless nights as security agencies would have had their hands around their necks, squeezing the life out of them.”
