UN Sending Team To Investigate Human Rights Abuses In Zim

The government has consented to a request by the United Nations Human Rights Council to send special rapporteurs to Zimbabwe to investigate allegations of human rights abuses by State security agents in light of January’s ShutDownZim protests.

This was revealed by Foreign Affairs ministry secretary James Manzou when he appeared before the Portfolio Committee on Foreign Affairs. Said Manzou:

In terms of human rights, Zimbabwe and the President have nothing to hide. The Human Rights Council in Geneva wants to send special rapporteurs to Zimbabwe and the President has said let them come.

The government has finally raised the number of people killed during the January protests to 12 from the initial 3.

Human rights groups, however, have put the number of fatalities at 17.

  1. UN should have taken this step before the renewal of sanctions. Its also good to do their own investigations than to rely on state and private media.
