Compensating Gukurahundi victims with 'blood money'

19 May 2013 at 07:34hrs | Views
Compensating someone financially for a murdered loved is in dictionary terms "blood money". If MDC T and Morgan Tswangirayi think that promising to giving the people of Matebeleland blood money as compensation for Gukurahundi atrocities will win them the hearts of the Matebele people they are getting it wrong.

The people of Matebeleland need more than that kind of an election gimmick. People need healing and truce. The people are still terrified, angry and scared albeit 30 years on and such a statement is seriously mistimed and inappropriate. Think twice cdes and don't even come to Matebeleland with that policy you will get yourselves kicked out faster than you came in.

May I also repeat a warning I gave you the other day, please don't bring those red berets of yours to Matebeleland. Take my word or leave it but you are shooting yourselves on your feet.
