The ZANU PF Secretary for Youth Affairs Lewis Matutu has called upon  the law enforcement agents to arrest former leader of the dreaded Chipangano Jim Kunaka over allegations that he confessed to beating and killing opposition members.

Kunaka was testifying in front of the 1 August killings Commission of Inquiry led by Kgalema Motlanthe.

"Jim Kunaka has conceded perpetrating violence against the opposition and killing people for political gains live on TV before the commission of inquiry. All this was done under the oath. It is the duty of the law enforcement institutions to apprehend him and be charged under the laws of the land. He should not be allowed to get away with this!"Matutu said in a statement.

"If he was given instructions as he alleges, he must name those who gave him such orders if they do exist. Let him name those that were working with him. He just complicated his life because mhosva hairovi he must be held accountable."

Matutu said the former terror leader was bitter at ZANU PF because he is broke.

"Some people may wonder why Jim Kunaka of all the people hate ZANU PF to the core. He is very broke drained and in serious debt and the only way to make money is representing the opposition. However, the fact that he admitted to criminal activities let him take responsibility.

"Majority of the things that he said shows hate, bitterness and disorder but they are of no substance to the commission of enquiry, probably he should have understood the commission s terms of reference."Matutu further explained.

Giving his evidence in chief before the commission Kunaka said, "I was a Provincial Leader of ZANU PF  in Harare and I was in charge of commanding violent activities if you check on the internet my name is there. Professor Charity Manyeruke who is seated there in the commission is one of the  architects of violence in ZANU PF . She was one of the people with whom we would sit down to discuss how we would beat up MDC people.

"Manyeruke  was my Boss who sent me to do violence and my commander who gave me instructions so I will not respond any questions from my commander because when we were in ZANU PF  I was merely her foot soldier."

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa is expected to appear before the Commission of Inquiry on Monday next week.
