‘Mugabe Unleashed Reign Of Terror Instead Of Meaningful Reforms,’-Human Rights Watch (HRW)

President Robert Mugabe has failed to evoke any meaningful human rights reforms and instead unleashed a reign of terror on those who dared question his misrule, a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report has shown.

The hard-hitting report chronicled several human rights abuses which were perpetrated towards the end of 2014 right through the preceding year. It noted that there was no progress towards justice for past human rights violations and political violence.

The HRW also accused Mugabe of consolidating his grip on power by kicking out “reformist” former Vice-President Joice Mujuru.

“She was replaced with two co-Vice-Presidents [Emmerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko]. Both are implicated in serious past human rights abuses,” part of the report read. By Phyllis Mbanje. source-newsday
