The three ministers for healing are leading the latest round of discussions in collaboration with the heads of the country's Christian denominations and the National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations

Zimbabwe's Organ on National Healing and Reconciliation has embarked on a new round of consultations in the country's 10 provinces to solicit views on how best to proceed with the program to reconcile those caught up in often deadly 2008 political violence.

The three ministers for healing of the parties sharing power in the national unity government are leading the latest round of discussions in collaboration with the heads of the country's Christian denominations and the National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations.

The consultative team visited Manicaland province on Tuesday, moved to Masvingo province on Wednesday and was to head next week to Midlands and Bulawayo provinces.

Programs Coordinator Machinda Marongwe of the National Association of Non-Governmental Organizations told VOA Studio 7 reporter Jonga Kandemiiri that the meetings arose from consultations between church and civil society leaders and the healing ministers.
