US statement on the alleged petrol bombing of the home of ZANU-PF
official William Chapepa
March 13, 2013
of the United States of America is deeply concerned about the alleged
petrol bombing of the home of ZANU-PF candidate William Chapepa
in Makoni West on March 12. Chapepa is standing for election to
become a councilor in Manicaland. He is now in hospital with serious
burns as a result of the fire that is currently under investigation.
As in the case
of the death of the son
of an MDC-T Headlands district deputy organizing secretary in February,
this terrible occurrence is an opportunity for the Zimbabwe Republic
Police to conduct a thorough investigation, and, if it is determined
to be arson, to hold all responsible for this atrocity to account.
Swift professional law enforcement work to bring the perpetrators
to justice is vital to reassuring Zimbabweans that their political
leaders sincerely want, and will insist on, peace and peaceful elections
brings its Global Political
Agreement to an end, non-partisan, efficient, and professional
law enforcement is critical to gaining the confidence of the Zimbabwean
people, neighboring countries, and the international community.
Respect for the rule of law and apolitical policing are also essential
for creating the conditions for credible and non-violent Zimbabwean
elections later this year.
