2018 Post-election violence: Radio programme on the commission of inquiry

Tune in tonight

A soldier fires shots towards demonstrators, on August 1 2018, in Harare, as protests erupted over alleged fraud in the country’s election.
Protests in Zimbabwe’s historic elections turned bloody on August 1 as a man was shot dead during demonstrations over alleged vote fraud and the president appealed for calm. The man died after soldiers fired live ammunition during opposition protests in downtown Harare, AFP reporters saw.

Join us tonight on Star FM at 9pm as we unpack the Commission of Inquiry into the 2018 Post-Election Violence.

NTJWG Chairperson Mr. Alec Muchadehama, Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights’ Executive Director Ms. Roselyn Hanzi, Zimbabwe Council Churches’ Programme Manager Fambai Ngirande will discuss the legacy of violence in Zimbabwe, the 1 August killings by the military and the Commission of Inquiry with George Msumba tonight at 9pm.

The NTJWG has already released a statement on the appointment of the commission of inquiry, its mandate and the caliber of the persons appointed into the commission. See full statement here.

To understand the magnitude of the violence, see the report by Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum here 

NTJWG has noted that the 1 August 2018 killing of civilians is not an isolated incident of violence. Zimbabwe is haunted by a legacy of unacknowledged gross violation of human rights.
