We cannot cover up the truth

IT’S a great idea that a photo exhibition was held which narrated the story of Zimbabwe’s political violence in the last decade.

Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai aptly stated at the exhibition that without justice there can be no forgiveness. 
It is true because anyone who believes they can cover up the truth of our past is delusional. Covering up old wounds can only make them fester. Indeed as he said we must face them so that we don’t perpetuate the wrongs of the past.
However, they should not just focus on recent events alone. They should also showcase the gory story of the 1982-1987 Gukurahundi orgy of violence which occurred in Matabeleland and Midlands provinces.
