Open letter to President Emmerson Mnangagwa from Beatrice Mtetwa

By Beatrice Mtetwa

Sir, I address you, not because you personally abducted, tortured and sexually abused JOANA MAMOMBE, CECILIA CHIMBIRI and NETSAI MAROVA. Neither do I address you because I know or am in other way connected with the three young women.

I address you as the head of all government institutions in Zimbabwe. I address you as the man who appointed each one of the persons who head our government institutions.

In particular, you appointed the Commander of our Defence Forces, the Commissioner General of our Zimbabwe Republic Police, the Minister in Charge of our State Security, the Director General of Our Central Intelligence Organization.

All four appointees are supposed to be non-partisan and to protect Zimbabweans from both external and internal attacks on their persons, property, integrity and to at all times ensure that rights granted by the Constitution are enjoyed by all.
