“The nation demands that we set up an investigating team and we call in the Scotland Yard Police, Russian Police or Chinese Police to look into the matter. Our people think that our soldiers, the police and
Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO), who are involved in the investigations are not doing a proper job. We want an independent committee to be set up,” said MDC MP for Masvingo Central Jefferson Chitando.
Mujuru died in an suspected fire incident at his farm in Beatrice on 16 August and was buried at the national shrine.
MDC MP for Kambuzuma Willis Madzimure said: “We must as a nation investigate the death of the general and we want foreign experts to be involved because we understand that the people who are supposed to give evidence are now are afraid and this is causing a lot of problems in the investigations of the case.”
Zanu (PF) MP for Buhera North Wiliam Mutomba urged the members of parliament to forget their political differences and ensure that a proper investigation into Mujuru’s death is done.
“I saw many MDC MPs at the burial of General Mujuru and it was a good sign of unity amongst us as members of parliament and we wish we could do that to conclude the investigation,” said Mutomba.
Despite the calls by the MPs, the police have so far rebuffed suggestions of incorporating any outside investigators to join its investigating team.
