Speech by Martin W. Chinyanga at the ‘’Diaspora feels it’’ ZIMBABWE EMBASSY UK 182\2012
We are getting finished one by one , by the violence caused by zanu-pf leaders.. we thought that we are not going to hear any killings related to political violence after wasting money on national healing process … Now that we are having too much and serious political violence and we are also waiting for elections, it shows we have a time bomb waiting to explode as we experience these sporadic violence’s around the country. I ask the members of the MDC to group up and act in an active manner, from today on wards we do not want to hear this violence or else immediate action to ask peacekeepers to come and monitor the government of Zimbabwe and help to be paralyse it before elections .We ask the UN, SADC, AU and the world to now put an eye in to Zimbabwe as a country in crisis like Sudan and Congo. When funerals like this happen we ask for the people of Zimbabwe to be very patriotic towards country hood love not love of the country but love of ubuntu and love amongst Zimbabweans. We ask every one to attend such funerals as we see in Syria, Egypt, Libya etc.. and that shows one hood and one objective, that we are not accepting to die , we are not accepting to die like animals being hunted by lions.. ‘’in a game lions look for a divide and rule strategy, hence they separate one bull from the rest of the crowd and goes after it hence the rest just looks and observing without doing anything’’. I ask to all Zimbabweans to stop the game of killing each other , we must understand that there is Ngozi and this will be blood on top of our children, please whether you are MDC or ZANU-PF stop the spirit of murdering. All Zimbabweans abroad must go to their respective Zimbabwe embassies and lay these flowers in paying homage of expressing their feelings towards the brutality which happened to the victims and their families. THE POLICE SERVICES OF ZIMBABWE must detain all suspects of 2008 political violence and all members of CHIPANGANO GROUP, they have not repented dispite all the efforts done by the national healing organ in the country. I edge our police force to do their work in a professional way not to put a blind eye on these murderers. God bless Zimbabwe and may we be opened our eyes from the suppression of our internal enemies.
Diaspora Feels It protest on Saturday
by zimeye editor.
Diaspora Feels it combined with Zim Vigil members marched to the Zimbabwe embassy in London to lay their condolences for those who have been killed through political violence.
Their efforts come just as two members of the MDC led by Morgan Tsvangirai were murdered in less than a week, amid fears that politically motivated violence is once again on the rise. The murdered include:
Sharukai Mukwena whose hands were reportedly chopped off in the attack, which the MDC has called “a truly gruesome murder incident.” “He was murdered apparently for showing the MDC party symbol which is an open palm. ZANU-PF severed both palms from his body before they murdered him in Masvingo.
Shepherd Bandau, the party’s branch treasurer in Mbare, Harare, was according to the MDC party murdered by members of the notorious Chipangano gang, a ZANU PF loyal youth gang. The MDC-T said that Bandau had been on his way home on Friday when 10 Chipangano members approached and started assaulting him leading to his death.
Speaking to ZimEye, Chinyanga who leads the Mega Zimbabwe convention said that those who feel compelled should join the effort.
“These things we do them whenever there is a murder in Zimbabwe. If it happens every day, we will do it everyday,” he said.
Chinyanga who asked that the national police should assist the public professionally, pleaded with Diasporans to join the effort: “Who knows tomorrow it could be you; These people did not chose to be killed,” he said.
“Despite the national healing process currently underway, the 2008 election murderers have not repented from their actions,” Chinyanga added.
The organisation calls for members of the Zimbabwean community to join others living outside the country of their birth to conduct occasional visits to embassy entrances and lay flowers in honour of Zimbabwe’s victims of violence, whenever a murder incident is reported from within Zimbabwe.
