Victims of Zimbabwe's Post-Poll Shootings Get Compensation

Families of the six people who died during the 2018 post-election violence are set to receive compensation from government, as authorities begin implementing recommendations of the Motlanthe commission. On August 1, armed soldiers were deployed in the capital, Harare, to suppress a protest against delays in announcing election results. President Emmerson Mnangagwa set up a commission of inquiry, headed by former South African president Kgalema Motlanthe, to probe the killings.
