Human Rights Under Attack: A Review of Zimbabwe’s Human Rights Record in the Period 2018-2023

This advocacy briefing looks at the human rights record in Zimbabwe from the time
that Emmerson Mnangagwa took Office as President of Zimbabwe. It assesses the
extent to which the present government has failed to reform the abysmal legacy of
human rights under Robert Mugabe. It further demonstrates that there has not been
a real shift in the human rights legacy between the Mugabe and the Mnangagwa
presidencies. It makes several recommendations to the government on how a real shift
could be achieved, including by simply adhering to the Constitution of Zimbabwe.
