Mupfumira was speaking to SowetanLIVE after attending Maposa’s memorial service in Chinhoyi.
“The issue here isn’t who was killed‚ but who are the irresponsible leaders who incited the unrest. The world must know who the people are who ordered their supporters to go on the streets and cause havoc‚” she said.
Mupfumira added that some MDC Alliance leaders have been encouraging their supporters to riot for no reason.
“It is very sad that innocent people were caught in crossfire. These irresponsible leaders must answer [as to] why they called their supporters to demonstrate‚ yet the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission is still within its legal time frame for announcing presidential results. That must be condemned‚” she said.
Mupfumira said the family found out about Maposa’s death when a photo of a woman fitting her description and pictured in the dress she was wearing on Wednesday started circulating through social media.
Mupfumira claims that the rioters were fed with drugs and alcohol at MDC Alliance headquarters‚ and there was video footage to support her allegation.
“The irresponsible utterances have caused the people to go to the streets. We have seen their unruly hooligans involved in the destruction of property and looting. They are forcing young people to go on the streets instead of waiting‚ like all of us‚ for ZEC to announce the official results.
“Any responsible leader will know that the results won’t be announced until all the agents have verify them and satisfied themselves with the process.”
