Mollante was appointed using a tainted parameter which constrained his freedom. This was compounded by a partisan CIO managed and controlled secretariat. I submit that he did an excellent job using his tied hands. The energy to move forward, the momentum to resolve Zimbabwe's problems must come from us Zimbabweans. At the moment our Zanu pf counterparts are still enjoying their farms, command agriculture fruits, new vehicles, wild life safaris, partisan food aid and tons of propaganda. The day they will ask for answers as to such questions as to why life under His Excellency President Mugabe was far better than life under the new dispensation, perhaps EDM will get the courage and resolve to appoint a team of non-partisan advisers and act on such advice. As for now it is wild parties in ZANU pf while the nation languishes in queues.

I think the nation must just accept the Report and move forward. We have a long journey to travel towards rebuilding this economy. The MDC has been blamed for inciting rioters and the military has also been blamed for using excessive force on rioters. These are the facts coming from the probe and we cannot continue to play the blame game. Justice will take its course while we are doing other national duties.

What's embarassing is the attempt to deflect blame. Zanu ordered the massacre of its people because they were scared of an insurrection. It doesn't matter whether they were rioting or not. Section 86 (3) of the constitution says no killing. Period. The paid Zanuoids on these comment section seem to have forgotten that. Who ordered the killing, who pulled the trigger. Period.

David writes that the Commission was biased because it did not blame the Army for the shootings. They did. It is clear that David has not read the report. SAD.

The comments above testify the findings of the Commission that Zim is a polarised state. The Headline says Mothlante calls for Talks, why people should go on a charade of name calling beats me. We need to start from here and heed Mothlante's calls and talk on how we ourselves can extricate us from the never ending morass.
