National Society for Human Rights (NSHR) joins, among others, United
Nations (UN) Secretary General Bam Ki-moon, UN High Commissioner
for Human Rights Louise Arbour and the Governments of Zambia and
South Africa as well as various regional and international civil
society organizations in condemning the latest gross violations
of human rights in Zimbabwe.
NSHR also calls upon
both SADC and the African Union to similarly speak out against the
deteriorating situation in Zimbabwe.
deplore the deafening silence on the part of our own Namibian Government
in the face of the brutal and barbaric physical attacks by the police
against human rights defenders and Opposition leaders in Zimbabwe.
The Zimbabwean situation is reminiscent of the systematic abuses,
which existed under apartheid South Africa and which the Namibian
people have been fighting against for some three decades. Continuous
silence on our Government's part could reinforce widespread
reports that Namibia approves or tolerates the grave human rights,
humanitarian and security situation in Zimbabwe", said
NSHR executive director Phil ya Nangoloh.
