Mat North sets groundwork for peace and reconciliation hearings

THE National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) is laying the groundwork for public hearings as the country begins the national healing process.
This comes after President Emmerson Mnangagwa pledged to bring lasting peace and healing in the country, by encouraging continuous engagement.
NPRC has set the ball rolling for public hearings in Matabeleland North province where victims of various conflicts will speak out.
NPRC Chairperson, Retired Justice Selo Nare says the healing process has gained traction and welcomed the involvement of key stakeholders including traditional leaders, the civic society and religious sector.
“Traditional Chiefs play a big role in peace building and conflict resolution in communities to promote family values and facilitate development hence we value their role for the work to be a success, said Retired Justice Nare.
NPRC Commissioner, Leslie Ncube commended the government’s commitment to ensuring that peace and harmony is restored.
“Resources will never be enough, we appreciate what the treasury has been availing to us so that we deliver what the constitution mandates us,” he said.
The commission is set to hold similar workshops in other provinces before rolling out nationwide public hearings.
