U.S. Embassy Statement on Recent Violence in Zimbabwe

us_embassy_in_zimbabweHarare - The United States is alarmed by, and condemns, the recent spate of political violence perpetrated by youths and opportunists affiliated with elements of ZANU-PF. Such unlawful actions violate the Global Political Agreement and demonstrate that the undermining of the rule of law has not changed fundamentally.

We commend the restraint shown by those victimized or affected by these assaults in not responding with violence. The U.S. calls on all parties to sincerely renounce violence as a political tool and for the law enforcement community to uphold the rule of law without partisan bias.
