The former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe-led commission, which is carrying out public hearings on the shootings that claimed six lives, subpoenaed Chamisa and other MDC leaders to testify tomorrow.
Addressing scores of party supporters at Nyamuzuwe business centre in Mutoko on Saturday, MDC secretary-general Douglas Mwonzora said the supporters should converge in Harare in solidarity with Chamisa.
“As you are aware, the president will appear before the commission of inquiry. But we are saying, those who shot at the people are known, it was televised, the videos are there,” he said.
“However, our leadership was called to testify on Wednesday. We will all be going there in solidarity with our president, all of us should go.”
However, Chamisa has not said whether or not he will appear before the commission.
