Mothlante Commission: Govt not Fazed by Social Media Fanatics

Harare - President Emmerson Mnangagwa does not require motivation from social media fanatics to release findings by the Mothlante Commission during the August 1 killings. 

The President made an undertaking to make the results of the August 1 inquiry public way before appointing the Mothlante Commission but will follow processes and formalities laid down in the law, his spokesperson, George Charamba, has said.

The Commission of Inquiry was appointed by President Mnangagwa in terms of the Commissions of Inquiry Act to investigate the August 1 post-election violence that resulted in the death of six people and destruction of property worth millions of dollars.

Charamba, who is also the Deputy Chief Secretary (Presidential Communications), stated the President’s position following a misreading of his intervention by twimbos on Monday when he explained that at law there was nothing that obligated President Mnangagwa to share the report with the public.

“Zimbabweans must cool it and take it easy. There is no need for excitement. Let us avoid the feat of crossing the river when we are still at the summit of a hill,” said Charamba.

“I sit in several meetings involving emissaries of foreign governments and, more particularly, involving the President and the UN Secretary- General. In all those meetings, the President made an undertaking that both processes and outcomes of the Commission will be an open affair.

“That was well before Commissioners had even been identified, certainly well before the Commission had been sworn in.”

Charamba said President Mnangagwa made the undertaking way before the constitution of the Commission of Inquiry and before the Commissioners were even identified.
