The Secretary-General has been following with concern recent developments in Zimbabwe. He urges the Government of Zimbabwe to ensure the protection of all fundamental human rights, notably the freedom of opinion and expression and the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association, in accordance with Zimbabwe’s human rights obligations.

Since the disputed 2018 election, there has been an impasse between the governing ZANU PF and the main opposition MDC Alliance led by Nelson Chamisa.

Some analysts believe the impasse is also contributing to deepening socio-economic and political crises in the country.

  1. …”following with concern…” OH PLEASE!! He doesn’t give a damn, ditto the rest of the world! Zimbabwe has no oil, is land-locked and inflicted this problem on itself, numerous times over the last 40 years! The UN said and did NOTHING back in the 80’s, will do sod-all now, and as long as greedy, mouthy idiots like Chamisa keep destroying the opposition’s chances of being elected, there’s NO chance of change!

  2. They can only go as far as condeming and being concerned and nothing else beyond that.Zimbabweans must do whatever they can to free themselves without giving a damn.For how long should we be oppressed and noone gives a damn.
