Will Mnangagwa's Govt Pay Compensation For 1980s Atrocities?

The Emmerson Mnangagwa-led government must pay Matebeleland province U.S.$100 billion in compensation for Gukurahundi and other multiple level damages suffered under successive Zanu-PF administrations since Zimbabwe's independence, opposition politician Paul Siwela has said.


Gukurahundi referes to the series of massacres carried out by the notorious Fifth Brigade army unit that allegedly massacred over 20 000 civilians - members of the country's ethnic minorities living in the opposition strongholds of Matabeleland and parts of the Midlands provinces.
