Dr Parirenyatwa, explain yourself

TOP del.icio.us

Before the March 29 Election, my impression of Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health and Child Welfare, Dr. David Parirenyatwa was that he was among the more “reasonable” of mugabe’s ministers. He had a good reputation, and the people I knew who had been on committees or at conferences or meetings with him seemed to respect him.

But Parirenyatwa being depicted in the media seems a very different man. He is accused of being instrumental to a campaign of post-election, retaliatory violence in Murehwa.

Dr Parirenyatwa, I challenge you to read stories such as these, and explain yourself.

  1. Comment by Kubatana.net speaks out from Zimbabwe » Blog Archive » Watch this film:

    [...] I’ve been reading a news article in which the Mugabe regime asserts that the MDC is drawing attention to post election violence as a “ploy” for international intervention. Meanwhile the BBC has just published a short film about victims of state violence in Zimbabwe. I wonder whether Morgan Tsvangirai might challenge Zimbabwe’s Minister of Health and Child Welfare, Dr David Parirenyatwa to tour Harare’s hospitals to see and hear the gruesome stories of assault and brutality. Tsvangirai’s visit to supporters who have been beaten and who are recovering in hospital is long overdue. But if Ban Ki-moon comes first, then lets at least see Someone from the MDC rallying hope in the hospital wards. [...]
