Disabled evictees ask UN to bar Zim govt from conference due to hypocrisy
People living with disabilities who were evicted from the Leonard Cheshire home after losing an 18-year legal battle have petitioned the United Nations to bar Zimbabwe from attending the Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The conference will take place from the 13th to the 15th of June in New York.
Some of the evictees have been staying out in the open almost two months since the eviction. In a letter written and faxed to the UN’s headquarters in New York, the evictees said:
We believe that they (Zim government departments) are agencies of misinformation as far as representing persons with disabilities in Zimbabwe is concerned, and allowing them to attend the 10th Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities UN Headquarters being such a grand stage where genuine concerns of persons with disabilities are being tabled is a misnomer and a sure apparatus to perpetuate their plight and suffering, whilst sanitising such perpetrators of heinous acts of cruelty on the persons with disabilities who they purport to take care of and look afterFeedback
Their being at the convention is ironically endorsing the bad things they are doing back home as they will look good when they will be mixing and mingling with the sincere disabled comrades or their representatives who will be tackling and dealing with their real issues back home, and not short changing the citizenries they are mandated to serve.
