ZESN Calls For Peaceful Environment During 2023 Elections

ZESN Calls For Peaceful Environment During 2023 Elections

The Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN) has called on all stakeholders to ensure a peaceful environment before and after the general elections scheduled for 2023.

In a statement marking the International Day of Peace, running under this year’s theme, “End racism. Build peace”, ZESN said Zimbabwe is a signatory to several treaties which call for the maintenance of peace during elections. It said:

As Zimbabwe joins the rest of the world in commemorating this special day, ZESN strongly believes targeted peacebuilding efforts will go a long way in preventing election violence in Zimbabwe during the 2023 pre, polling and post-election periods.

Zimbabwe is a signatory to the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance, United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, among others which call for the promotion of peace during elections; therefore elections are an important aspect of every society.

ZESN also called for the strengthening of State institutions mandated with defending human rights as well as Civic Society Organizations (CSOs). ZESN said:

The Network calls for the strengthening of the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) and the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC), Faith Based Organizations (FBOs), Civic Society Organizations (CSOs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs), Education Institutions, Political Parties and the Media as they are critical stakeholders to fostering a culture of peace and tolerance in the society.

My physics teacher always told us that when a high law comes to effect it supercedes the less law, an aeroplane is able to take off because the laws of aerodynamics are superior to the laws of gravitation. ZANU is a higher law than all those signatories that the article mentioned kkkkkkkk

Everybody is calling for peace and tranquility before, during and after the Harmonised Elections. These organisations are not manned by fools. They all see that peace is not present. It is missing.

ZANU PF must be bigheaded like what Blabbermouth Christopher Mutsvangwa is doing. For how long do they want to hold disputed Elections ? Zimbabwe must not always remain in the peripheral of international community.

Free Honourable Advocate Job Sikhala, Honourable Godfrey Sithole and 14; others. Give other political parties campaign space, free judiciary from your capture, stop top level corruption, stop abuse of Huma Rights and reinstate the rule of law.

Without instituting and practising the above, we will have a disputed Elections again.

[ ZIMBABWE IS NOT BONDED TO ZANU PF NOR ZANU PF HAS ITS TITLE DEEDS FOR ZIMBABWE ].

[ CHAMISA CHETE CHETE].

Yours faithfully
William Sonboy CHINEMBIRI
