MRP party has made a wrong resolution which will cause chaos and havoc in Zimbabwe especially to the troubled victims who still need answers from ZANU about whereabouts of their relatives

As a concerned party ,they should have followed proper channels, that is Going to the forensic department and taking ZANU accountable until there is closure.

Without fear or favour, the MRP party as a whole should have made consultation ,toured many areas to hear what the people are saying and the other question is "All this time many political parties talking about Gukurahundi what made them not to burry the remains, where the political parties ZAPU, MDC formations, PDP, Zimpf and others not shown those bones by the community?

Where they not knowing those areas with Mass graves. To those affected, those who lost relatives ,if you are satisfied that those bones which you see are the bones of your relatives, continue burying them but if you were not aware rethink wise and when calling MRP make sure you tell them to follow proper channels otherwise you will cry foul

No reburials without closure.Reburials creates confusion and it is a catalyst which deactivates chances of pilling pressure to the perpetrators. MRP is creating its own downfall and mistrust by this iniative they are taking.

If the leadership of MRP is listening, they need to swallow pride, apologize to the nation and be with other opposition parties especially about Gukurahundi issue.
