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.
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
