    Namibia's 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.

    "We 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.
