Zimbabwe: are you mad?, UNDP asked

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Zimbabwe, Human Rights, Politics

Kubatana Blog writes about the initiative by the UNDP in Zimbabwe [1]to broker meetings between the government and the civil society organizations, “In response to this initiative, a few civic and human rights organisations have asked, “are you mad?” – you want us to speak with a Government that brutally suppresses freedom of assembly and expression? A Government that displaced 700 000 people during a mass eviction campaign in 2005.”
