About 20,000 people died when former Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe ordered a military campaign against the rival liberation movement, ZAPU.

An unknown number of civilians were among the dead in a series of massacres between 1983 and 1987. The new president, Emerson Mnangagwa, and former military chiefs appointed to his cabinet are implicated in the events.
