APA’s STATEMENT ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES IN ZIMBABWE
Thursday 24. January 2019
APA is dismayed at the mixed signals coming from the President. We welcomed his call, through his verified Twitter handle, for national dialogue in the national interest only for his spokesperson to disown those remarks. In the meantime, we continue to receive reports about indiscriminate mass beatings in Bulawayo by the authorities. While Minister Mthuli Ncube is sitting in Davos pretending that Zimbabwe is open for business, government is hard at work terrorizing the local population and stifling democratic space.
We strongly condemn these actions and call on the AU and SADC to pressure the government to respect the human rights of the citizens of Zimbabwe.
The president of APA is economist and Zimbabwe’s former minister of industry and trade, Nkosana Moyo.
