Govt officials refuse to cooperate with Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission’s investigation into Grace Mugabe’s human rights abuse

Top government officials are allegedly refusing to co-operate with the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC)’s planned investigation into human rights abuses by First Lady Grace Mugabe who forcibly evicted over 200 families, from Manzou Farm in Mazowe, where she plans to set up a wildlife conservancy.

Since last Friday, investigators from the ZHRC tried to meet Mashonaland Central Provincial Affairs minister Martin Dinha, the officer-in-charge at Mazowe Police Station and the provincial chief lands officer, with little success. ZHRC chairperson, Elasto Mugwadi, was, however, optimistic his team would be able to interview the officials soon.

A Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights member, who is representing the affected villagers, Moses Donsa-Nkomo, yesterday said he had written to Home Affairs minister Ignatius Chombo and Police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri threatening to sue.
