Watchdog Calls Out Zimbabwe's Mnangagwa Over Rights Abuses

Since he took over power, President Emmerson Mnangagwa and other high-level government officials made numerous promises to deliver governance reforms to mark the post-Mugabe era, but took few steps to demonstrate commitment to accountability, justice for human rights abuses, and respect for the rule of law, according to a new report from a leading advocacy group.

As the administration is also struggling to revive the economy, Zimbabweans may be asking themselves more than ever whether or not they should be expecting anything different from Mnangagwa?
