    Executive Summary
    Though there seems to have been a much different political milieu in the period before this year’s March 31st general plebiscite compared to the electoral atmosphere permeating the 2000 general elections, much could still be said regarding the failure by stakeholders, particularly the state to uphold the promotion and protection of human and people’s rights in Zimbabwe.

    As has been the case with previous elections in Zimbabwe, the period before the election has always been characterized by political violence, and this year’s election is no exception.

    The Zimbabwe Peace Project (ZPP), through its community-based primary monitoring system was on the ground to witness numerous cases of HR violations happening throughout the country.

    Since its inception, the ZPP has been monitoring the political situation in Zimbabwe’s 10 provinces. This is considering the prevalence of politically induced violence and other human rights (HR) abuses perpetrated by various individuals and/or groups especially around election processes.
