Allow me to mention areas were more could be done and these are critical human rights issues which need attention including the total abolishment of the death penalty which am sure Zimbabwe can do with the highest level of leaders commitment…Let me underline the UN’s commitment for support to the government and the civil society in facilitating the implementation of the UPR recommendations and in the promotion of human rights.
