Rights commission undertakes survey

HARARE - Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) is undertaking a survey that will help the commission tackle human rights issues effectively, officials said.

Elasto Mugwadi, ZHRC chairperson, said the survey will assist the ZHRC to prioritise areas of concern.

“The survey will be carried out by two consultants appointed by the ZHRC — Dorothy Mushayavanhu and Tarisai Mutangi who will be visiting the various provinces and districts in the country to interface with all stakeholders,” Mugwadi said in a statement.

“The commission is therefore appealing to all concerned that is, government institutions, civil society organisations, corporate institutions, other associations and individuals to cooperate and provide the consultants with maximum assistance as they carry out this research.”

ZHRC was set up under the government of national unity (GNU) to investigate human rights abuses.

Last month, Chief Justice Godfrey Chidyausiku swore in former chief immigration officer Mugwadi as the new ZHRC chairperson.

Mugwadi replaced Jacob Mudenda, who is now speaker of the National Assembly.
