Zanu-PF, ZRP Named As Top Perpetrators Of Violence

The 2017 State of Human Rights Report released by Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum has named Zanu-PF and the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) as top perpetrators of violence.

Speaking at the launch of the report, Jestina Mukoko said,

One only understands the magnitude of these problems when you analyze the ranking of perpetrators, topping the list of these perpetrators in the 2017 State of Human Rights Report is ZANU PF, followed by the police. ZANU PF is implicated in violations related to voter intimidation and violence.

ZRP is implicated in mass evictions, torture and attacks on vendors, in terms of severity the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company tops the list, implicated in the death of 5 people in Chiadzwa.

But when you look at these actors, these are all in close proximity to the state hence the police are reluctant to investigate and hold such people to account.
