The Human Rights Situation In Zimbabwe Has Heartrendingly Drastically Deteriorated – Former UN Human Rights Commissioner

A former Uniter Nations Commissioner for Human Rights while speaking at the Law Society of Zimbabwe organised Walter Kamba Rule of Law Award ceremony last week said the human rights situation under President Mnangagwa has drastically deteriorated, The Standard reports.

Calling the situation heartbreaking, Navi Pillay said:

In the year 2019, the human rights environment deteriorated dramatically in Zimbabwe.

It is heartbreaking for me and I am sure for Walter Kamba, had he been alive to see so much suffering, to have the hopes of Zimbabweans for a better future under change of government crushed.

In almost every facet of life, deterioration of civil and political rights and ESCR has reached crisis proportions

Pillay cited the problems that mare Zimbabwe and even pointed out the security forces crackdown on protestors and other socio-economic problems like unemployment, inflation and food shortages and commodity shortages and cash shortages.
