ZHRO Vigil 21 August 2019

Barbaric ZANU PF terrorises 
Innocent and Peaceful Zimbabweans

In yet another week filled with random and systemic abductions including that of comedians, painful beatings at the hands of masked armed men, cruel, degrading and inhuman treatment of Political and Human Rights activists, at the hands of Government proxies, resulting in life changing injuries to some and total desperation for all those affected.  

Gonyeti was apparently abducted, tortured and made to drink sewage
This time, there had not been any planned protest in Harare.  Just ordinary people going about their business, videos apparently showing the wanton destruction of property, the whaling cries of those afflicted, the undeniable distressed screeching scream from a woman being physically assaulted in broad daylight, all deliberately brought upon ordinary members of the public, by violent and seemingly sadistic hooligans, who are apparently representing the Zimbabwe Republic Police, on Saturday 25th August 2019, with the cameraman saying, "this is Zimbabwe on a Saturday," should make anyone with a beating heart worry about the safety of all Zimbabweans, activist or not.

The Universality of Pain, the Universality of affliction, the Universality of being brutally bastardised or being Killed by State Sanctioned violence has led to joint Statements by a number of Governments that are members of the U.N. Security Council through their representatives, where they have condemned the ZANU PF led Zimbabwe Government.

This Universality of pain, is what actually led to the formation of the United Nations and the Declarations of Human Rights that are known the world over.  It is also what has led ZHRO and its members to Protest Weekly and if need be for the sake of others, who are in Zimbabwe, ZHRO is imploring all Zimbabweans proud and passionate to make their voices heard and their numbers count by attending the ZHRO Vigil Protests on Wednesdays, because, those in Zimbabwe can not.

Special thanks go to the following, Molly Ngavaimbe who gave us the opening prayer, the singing and chanting which was shared by Sarah Bayisayi, Mary Mateyerwa and Rashiwe Bayisayi.  Then to Sibongile Bvungidzire who closed the vigil with a special prayer for the people of Zimbabwe that was said in Ndebele.
