Reforming Zimbabwe's Security Sector Ahead of Elections

Book - 2013
Rate this:
This 44-page report describes how Zimbabwe's military and other security forces have interfered in the country's political and electoral affairs in support of President Robert Mugabe and his political party, ZANU-PF, preventing Zimbabweans from exercising their rights to free expression and association and to vote. This was particularly evident during the June 2008 presidential run-off election, when the army committed widespread abuses including killings, beatings, and torture. Since then, the leadership of the military, police, and internal security agency, the Central Intelligence Organization, has remained unchanged and openly supportive of Mugabe.
