Zim put under watch over rights abuses

President Emerson Mnangagwa


ZIMBABWE has been added to a watch list of countries that have seen a steady decline in civic freedoms as the country gears up for general elections in July 2023, international human rights monitor, Civicus, has said.

This follows concerns raised around President Emmerson Mnangagwa administration’s latest target on non-government organisations (NGOs) and members of the opposition ahead of the elections.

Civicus is an international non-profit organisation, which describes itself as “a global alliance dedicated to strengthening citizen action and civil society around the world”. Founded in 1993, it is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Civicus said Zimbabwe was recently added to the list of countries that have experienced a decline in civic freedoms.
