The US ambassador to Zimbabwe, James McGee, told reporters this week that what had begun as a political crisis was now a humanitarian crisis or human rights issue with the level of violence taking place (in the) countryside and in the high density suburbs.
The Geneva-based Human Rights council said on Tuesday in New York that several political murders had occurred, and at least 351 people had been hospitalised for injuries related to political violence.
McGee said violence was mainly coming from people who were not happy with the way others voted.
I have seen a 75-year-old grandmother who was beaten simply because her relative stood on an MDC ticket, he said.
Judging from the figures that were shown outside the polling stations it is clear that [the] people of Zimbabwe have voted for change, McGee said.Post published in: News
