Ziyambi Justifies Govt Crackdown On Protestors Before UN

Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi justified the government of Zimbabwe’s crackdown on protestors before the 40th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) underway in Geneva, Switzerland.

Addressing the Council on Wednesday, Ziyambi said:

It is important to note that these protests were premeditated, pre-planned, masterminded and sponsored by external forces and local NGOs who were working with some civil society organisations and some workers unions, to make the country ungovernable and to effect regime change.

Government consequently deployed law enforcement agents to quell these protests and avert further loss of life and destruction of property.

It is a pity that the same groups have continued to propagate biased and misleading reports that are aimed at tarnishing the image of Zimbabwe yet they continue to get favourable attention.

This happens even when in cases where they are alleged to have incited the commission of crimes and violations of the rights of other citizens.

In order to protect their interests, their handlers continue to advocate for their release even at the expense of the proper administration of justice.
