President Mnangagwa Chides Human Rights Defenders

President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday criticised human rights advocates saying they should not waste time talking about human rights but should rather look at the “good” in the country.

He was addressing Zion Christian Church (ZCC) Mbungo members at the launch of the Pfumvudza Presidential Input Scheme in Masvingo yesterday. He said:

We have people in this country who just shout from morning to dusk talking of human rights. They do not have time to see the good in their country. They look for the negatives.

Mnangagwa’s tenure has also been rocked by allegations of gross human rights abuses which have raised eyebrows in South Africa with President Cyril Ramaphosa and the ruling African National Congress (ANC) sending delegations to ascertain what is going in Zimbabwe.

Leader of the ZCC, Nehemiah Mutendi, one of Mnangagwa’s closest allies, said it was too risky for the nation to depend on donor food handouts, adding “a hungry man is ungovernable”.
