Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission to investigate attack on Khupe

In an interview with The Sunday Mail last week, Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) chairperson Mr Elasto Mugwadi said that they would investigate the attack on MDC-T Vice President Thokozani Khupe, national chair Mr Lovemore Moyo, and organising secretary Mr Abednico Bhebhe.

Said Mugwadi:

I was listening to commentaries by people relating to the violence that happened in Bulawayo over the weekend. Such behaviour shows that we still have to reach political maturity. It’s not acceptable. Resources permitting, we are going to be looking at the issue and find out exactly what happened.  In fact, the commission’s mandate is quite broad. We have the right in terms of our mandate to attend political rallies; we have the right to attend intra-political elections where they elect representatives for constituencies. That’s what we do in the build up to an election. We have to qualify if an election was free and fair, so one has to look at the developments prior to an election.
