Prosecute Security Forces For Violence, Rape, HRW Tells Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwean authorities should arrest and prosecute those responsible for abuses and send a strong message that crimes by the security forces won't be tolerated, a Human Rights Watch report says, accusing the country's security forces of using excessive lethal force to crush nationwide protests which were triggered by a sharp hike in fuel prices in January. The report comes as South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is in Zimbabwe for the binational commission which seeks to strengthen cooperation between Pretoria and Harare.
