Chombo, Chiyangwa committing crimes against humanity: Mliswa

HARARE - Former Hurungwe West legislator Temba Mliswa has said he is writing to the International Criminal Court (ICC) to have Zanu PF bigwigs Ignatius Chombo and Philip Chiyangwa tried for crimes against humanity.

Addressing a news conference yesterday in Harare, Mliswa said because of the violence that Chombo and Chiyangwa were allegedly unleashing in the constituency, they should be dragged before the international courts.

“They might escape the courts of Zimbabwe but they will not escape the courts of the world,” Mliswa said.

“They will not escape the courts that God presides over.

“This is why the ICC is there. These are crimes which must go before the ICC and we shall be writing to the ICC on the acts that Chombo and Chiyangwa perpetrated.

“If at all there are any Zimbabweans who will be first to appear before the ICC, it will be those two.

“There should be full investigations done by the international community in this behaviour which is archaic, barbaric and shameful.”

Mliswa said that while on the campaign trail in Hurungwe, he advocated for peace and unity and accused outsiders of terrorising his constituency.

He said that the more people Zanu PF was terrorising, the more enemies they were creating for themselves.

“It is clear that wherever Chombo goes, there is violence, whether I am there or not,” Mliswa said.

“You can now tell who is at the forefront of the violence you are seeing and it is a self-destructive approach.”

While Chombo was unreachable for comment, Chiyangwa said Zanu PF cannot go on to alert Mliswa every time they are in Hurungwe West. “Is he now the police?” Chiyangwa charged.

“Were we addressing (our rally) in his yard or house? Does he have people? Does he own anyone in Hurungwe West? Zanu PF has fielded a candidate in Hurungwe West and we are not answerable to Temba. Who is he?”

He added  that Mliswa must stop “muttering”  nonsense, saying his rants were politically vile.

Chiyangwa further accused Mliswa of running a militia that was in fact terrorising the constituency.

So this Themba boy thinks Internationa Criminal Court in The Hague is presided over by God? When did Europeans become God? You can smoke what you want Themba, but don't play with God. He doesn't preside over the ICC. The ICC is presided over by bigger criminals than you and Chombo put together.
