Is this the freedom?: ZPP
For Zimbabwe, August 2020, has been the most complicated month. During this month, the ruling Zanu PF started
off by celebrating two years after its contested electoral victory in August 2018.
Amid these celebrations, victims and families of those killed and injured when soldiers opened fire on unarmed
protesting civilians on August 1, 2018, were still to get any recourse in the form of compensation, prosecution of
perpetrators, or at the very least, an apology.
