Excessive force against peaceful protestors

This report documents the assault of five suspected MDC supporters in Manicaland and a retributive attack on a suspected MDC supporter who had reported to the police in June, an attack by ZANU PF supporters. As the human rights and humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe continues to deteriorate, more voices of dissent are coming up to demand an end to the political impasse by the main political parties. The Zimbabwean authorities continue in their use of excessive force against these peaceful demonstrators, a trend that has become increasingly worrying and has left many peaceful protestors severely injured and imprisoned.
