Former President Kgalema Motlanthe’s Commission Of Inquiry into the post-election violence in Zimbabwe has blamed the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) for the chaos that broke out a day after the country’s national elections this year.

The report also found that the army’s use of live ammunition was unjustified. Six people were killed and 35 others injured after soldiers opened fire on protesters awaiting the election results on 1 August.

The Commission has recommended that the families of the deceased and other victims be compensated.
