The Independent Commissions For Human Rights And For Peace Have Gone Mum-And-Dumb On Abductions – MDC

The Nelson Chamisa led MDC has expressed concern over the alleged silence of the independent commissions namely the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC), Zimbabwe Gender Commission, the Zimbabwe Media Commission and the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) over the ongoing abductions and torture, of Zimbabwe citizens.

Abductions have been going on prior and post the MDC planned Demos. National secretary for healing, peace and reconciliation, Blessing Chebundo for the MDC said:

Since the MDC, on behalf of the people, gave notice to demonstrate on August 16, 2019, against the hardships experienced by the people of Zimbabwe, the country has been engulfed by increasing abductions, torture, and persecutions of opposition and civil society. The people’s crime is raising voices of concern against induced life-threatening hardships.

Sequel to the MDC notice to demonstrate, the ZHRC, and the NPRC issued statements acknowledging and ascertaining the democratic rights of the people to ‘peacefully demonstrate against the hardshipsBoth institutions strongly urged the demonstrators, as well as the State representatives who were making violence-fomenting statements against the peaceful demonstrations, to desist from violating the process.

To this day, the nation continues to witness daily increases in the number of wanton abductions, torture and persecutions. Yet the independent commissions for human rights and for peace have gone mum-and-dumb. We are surprised and worried by the conspicuous silence by the country’s independent institutions for peace against these continued gross human rights violations.
