Minister Ziyambi’s remarks have attracted criticism of the legal spectrum who said that the idea to give the police power to shoot might create another genocide like Gukurahundi.
In an audio-recorded interview with VOA, Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Ziyambi Ziyambi said that the government has instructed the police to shoot notorious machete gangs.
The Minister reiterated that the notorious machete wielding criminals have become a treat to public security as a result measures are being taken by his ministry and the Ministry of Homes Affairs to enable the police to shoot the gang when need be.
Minister Ziyambi has said that the gangs are a terrorist group that deserves to be killed without fear in the same way Osama Bin Laden was killed.
“Even in America terrorists are killed, machete criminals are terrorists, I talked to the Minister of Homes Affairs for the police to shoot them,” said Ziyambi.
Minister Ziyambi also said that the government of Zimbabwe is working towards denying bail to all machete wielding criminals because they would threaten their victims not report.
“The people called Mashurugwi will be arrested, we will deny them bail because they would threaten their victims after bail application,” he said.
