Zim Govt Urged To Set Up Missing Persons Database

Civic society organisations (CSOs) are calling on government to set-up a missing persons database for suspected abduction victims dating back to the Gukurahundi period.

The call was made by CSOs at an enforced disappearances indaba organised by the Habakkuk Trust in Bulawayo last Friday. Habakkuk trust director Dumisani Nkomo urged government to set up a missing persons database to help bring closure to victims’ families.

The Gukurahundi issue must be talked about in public. This was highlighted to the President (Emmerson Mnangagwa) at State House last week. We should have a detailed database for the missing persons. There is need to put names to those faces of people who died, not just a figure. This will bring closure to the issue of missing persons.

He added that the database would be used by survivors in terms of economic benefits for the dependents of those who disappeared or who were killed since some left properties.
