The shrinking of democratic space in Zimbabwe and an update on the key economic and political developments in Zimbabwe: Where to Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe’s political and economic situation is reaching a boiling point and faced by a myriad of challenges. The political dispute emanating from the July 2018 presidential election has brought the country to a standstill with the economic situation worsening. In the past few weeks, we have seen an escalation of police brutality, with abductions and arrests of activists in Zimbabwe at the hands of the state security forces. Nearly 22 activists from the civil society and the main opposition political party the MDC Alliance are facing trial on treason charges.

In light of the above, the  Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition (CiZC) regional office and the Zimbabwe Solidarity Forum (ZSF) cordially invites the media to a press briefing and interaction on the matter to be addressed by the representatives of the following,
