Hearings from eye witnesses, victims and relatives of those killed in the August 1, 2018 post-election violence entered the 4th day this Friday.

Some political party representatives, observers and some organisations also made submissions.

Relatives of those who lost their loved ones continued to present their testimonies with one such testimony from one Mr Tauro whose son Challenge lost his life in the post-election violence.

Mr Tauro narrated how he had received some telephone calls late afternoon from his Chitimba farm dwelling and struggled to reach the hospital late in the night and made all efforts to save his life.

Challenge succumbed to the injuries sustained in the August 1 post-election violence.

Another chilling account of the loss of a brother-in-law Ishmael Kumire was given by Ignatious Neshava who told the Commissioners he was a food vendor in the CBD.

He told the Commission that Ishmael had left a wife and 4 children who need school fees and food.

Another witness Vivid Gwede an observer for a political party during the elections spoke of attempts to falsify post-mortem reports and the efforts made by authorities to maintain peace during the demonstration.

A peace and security mediator and researcher Tafadzwa Mugwadi also gave his account insisting that the post-election violence of August 1 was premeditated and well-planned following the speeches that were made by opposition MDC Alliance leadership before the elections and during demos held towards the elections at some gatherings, including the during the MDC Alliance march and demonstration against the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

The work of the Commission continues until November when it is expected to compile a report to President Mnangagwa who set it up.
