Emmerson Mnangagwa has been tweeting calls for peace and an independent investigation into yesterday’s shootings in Harare. This is what he has been saying on his Twitter account:
I am therefore calling for an independent investigation into what occurred in Harare yesterday. We believe in transparency and accountability, and those responsible should be identified and brought to justice.
They, alongside the families of the victims, are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
The most important thing for us now is to move beyond yesterday’s tragic events, and to move forward, together.
I wish to extend my sincere condolences to the families of the victims of yesterday’s violence. All human life is sacred, and their deaths are a tragedy, irrespective of the circumstances. I would also like to wish a speedy recovery to all those injured in yesterday’s events
