Zimbabwe: Socialist Officials Accused of Stealing Mugabe Genocide Memorial Plaques

A non-profit organization supporting victims of Zimbabwe’s 1983-1987 genocide accused unnamed members of Zimbabwe’s socialist government of “stealing Gukurahundi [genocide] memorial plaques in [Zimbabwe’s] Matabeleland South and Midlands provinces” last week, the online newspaper New Zimbabwe reported Monday.

“Gukurahundi plaques erected by the Bulawayo-based pressure group, Ibhetshu Likhazulu, in memory of villagers killed during the massacres by a government-back army in the early 1980s, have been stolen by unidentified people ahead of memorial services of the victims in the two provinces [sic],” New Zimbabwe reported June 21.

“The Silobela plague [plaque] was stolen last week after it was erected ahead of a memorial service for 12 villagers killed in 1985 in Silobela,” according to the newspaper.
