News:Zapu Opposes Reburial Of Gukurahundi Victims. Wants Govt To Investigate The Murders First

<vote /> ZAPU has spoken strongly against the proposed exhumation and reburial of Gukurahundi victims before a full investigation to the murders is carried out and justice is served.

Zapu spokesperson Iphuthile Maphosa said,

We, therefore, take this opportunity to advise the Hon Vice-President that the time for reburials has not come yet. Not until closure to the genocide is given. Not until a full investigation to the murders is carried out and justice is served, restorative or otherwise. Not until a comprehensive healing process has been instituted can talk of reburying the victims begin.

Remains of the Gukurahundi victims continue to be uncovered in some parts of Matabeleland, particularly in Lupane which bore the brunt of the mass killings. In 2011, teachers and pupils at Silwane Primary School in Lupane, Matabeleland North Province, discovered human bones protruding from the ground close to classroom blocks.
