"Mphoko must be investigated immediately for the role he played in Gukurahundi as I am convinced he is hiding something from the nation," ex-army officer and opposition party United Crusader for Achieving Democracy (UCAD), Albert Matapo said in an interview recently.

VP Mphoko  once said: "On Gukurahundi, I was a victim, because I was arrested together with Edward Ndlovu, Welshman Mabhena, Sydney Malunga and others. My arrest is well documented and was reported by the BBC. Judith Todd wrote extensively on my arrest."

"On CIO, Dabengwa, seconded members from his NSO department in 1980 including Mlambo and others. I and other former ZPRA commanders were never called to join the army. I was only employed by Government in November 1981, as deputy director for demobilisation. When the demob exercise ended, I was transferred to the Department of Employment and Employment Development  in the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare. In 1987, I was transferred to the diplomatic section of the President's Department (CIO) and posted to Mozambique in September 1987 as liaison officer, before I was posted to Austria. Victor Mlambo and Gorden Butshe were the ones who were working for CIO even during the Gukurahundi era. Not me. Records are there."

In January this year VP Mphoko was quoted saying: "All these allegations are not true. I never joined the CIO and I don't know where such allegations are coming from. In 1980 I was hired by the Government as a deputy director in the Ministry of Labour."  - See more at: http://bulawayo24.com/index-id-news-sc-national-byo-61526.html

    Umboko or whatever his name is yindoda emane nje ikhulume into engala clue kumbe isqiniseko. Whenever he has a chance to speak I tell you he says dull n blunt issues of no substance. He isn't a politician that's why he can gauge the mood of the audience. Lilema lindoda okungamelanga alalelwe lest we divert our attention away from fundamental issues. If he has nothing to do with iGugurahundi why then try absolve yourself from it sekungathi ukhona okwethesa icala.

    Ofcourse he's hiding something,actual he was involved of killings of his people,he's bootlicking&singing for his supper like all of them,he's now accussing the west on Gukurawundi atrocities but it was men from Mashonaland killed&raped our people,inever a single white men during Gukurawundi era but men speaking [Some people] are the ones who did all that&iam still angry about what iwent through during that time

  • VP Mphoko my stinking foot!!!

This issue of Gukurahundi will haunt this Zanu gvt till justice prevail, no amount of propaganda will ever silence the Matabeleland and parts of Middlands Neva!!! Not even this islima sika VP. One day Mthwakazi will Rise. Ababulali bazajeziswa kabuhlungu.
