Commission of inquiry report released
The Kgalema Motlanthe commission of inquiry into the 1 August post-election violence has recommended compensation to victims of the skirmishes that claimed six lives and left 35 people injured in Harare.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa released to the public domain the report of the inquiry, which made a host of recommendations, which President Mnangagwa promised to work on.
When he read the report, President Mnangagwa said going forward, the government will study the recommendations and decide the way forward.
The commission recommended the need for dialogue among Zimbabweans, including compensation for those who lost their loved ones and the payment of medical bills for those who were injured in the violence.
It also found that the deployment of the military and police to quell the situation was in accordance with the constitution of the country but due to time constraints of coordination, the military could not fall under the police as the situation was changing rapidly.
