MDC supporters rally behind Chamisa at inquiry

THE MDC has called upon its party supporters to troop to Harare and rally behind their leader Nelson Chamisa during his appearance before August 1 shootings commission of inquiry tomorrow.


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.

  1. I thought Nero said he was not going to appear. What has changed? Flip flop?

  2. Comment…Chamisa et al incited party supporters to demonstrate, hoping to make Harare ungovernable so that they would stage a coup but zanu-pf read script. Vakanyangira yaona but unfortunately seven died because of the love of power by both ED and Chamisa, both who grabbed power in their own parties. ED and Chamisa are not suitable to lead their parties and Zimbabwe. Pasi nejunta
