Amnesty International Concerned About Suppression Of The Right Of Assembly In Zimbabwe

Amnesty Zimbabwe, a section of the Amnesty-International that campaigns for the enjoyment of human rights, says it is concerned about human rights violations in Zimbabwe.

The organisation speaks after the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has refused to sanction “The Zimbabwe We Want” campaign gathering and a candle-lighting commemoration of Zimbabwean academic, Alex Tawada Magaisawho died on Sunday. Said Amnesty International:

Amnesty International is concerned about the violation of the right to peaceful assembly in Zimbabwe. Under Section 58 of the 2013 Constitution of Zimbabwe, everyone has the right to freedom of assembly. We are concerned about the government’s persistent targeting of the right to peaceful assembly in particular the denial by @PoliceZimbabwe to sanction a candle-lit vigil for the late @Wamagaisa & the arrest of Divine Destiny members during a prayer meeting.

The right to freedom of assembly is guaranteed under international law as well as the Zimbabwean Constitution and this right must be respected.

We call upon the Zimbabwean authorities to facilitate rather than hinder the enjoyment of this right.

Amnesty International said the law must not be used to suppress the exercising of the right of assembly.
