Addressing a press conference ahead of this United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Switzerland, Vice President and Minister of Justice, Emmerson Mnangagwa said that Government is happy with the human rights situation in the country and is committed to supporting and implementing all instruments to that effect.
As Government, we are happy. We are collaborating and supporting human rights instruments. Zimbabwe also supports and is committed to the implementation of all human rights issues and treaties under the Human Rights Commission. We have done a lot. We are also in the process of implementing those which we supported. So far, we have 151, which we are now going to proceed and implement and the other six we will implement partly as a result of the laws that we have in the country. Some of the six are partly already implemented under our legal framework back home and there is no need for reimplementation.
Last year, Zimbabwe presented its national report on November 2 and received recommendations from United Nations member States and other stakeholders on human rights issues. Out of the 260 recommendations, the country has supported 157 while 103 have not been supported.
