Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sworn into office a seven-member commission of inquiry into the post-election violence that took place on August 1 at State House.

The commission is led by former South African president Kgalema Motlanthe.

The inquiry is expected to take three months as it carries out its mandate to probe the outbreak of post-election violence.

At least six people‚ according to authorities‚ lost their lives and property worth thousands of dollars was vandalised.

Members of the army opened fire on unarmed citizens.

The international community widely condemned the post-election violence and will be looking closely at the commission’s findings.
