SammyD @SDzapa I’ve lost my beloved brother just because someone ordered them Army to shoot at will. And to think that we were just passing through Jason Moyo street so as to get to Copa cabana makes my heart bleed profoundly. Your subjects shot my bro, man! It could have been me even.
Munya Dimairo @mdimairo You ordered the killing of innocent people. Crocodile tears after more than 18 hrs of committing murder. Heartless, insensitive and disgusting. We don’t deserve this inhuman leadership.
