Mnangagwa's Special Team to Probe Human Rights Abuse Accusations

Barely a week after the UN special rapporteur Clement Nyaletsossi Vaule delivered a damning report on Zimbabwe's state of human rights, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has set up a special team to look into the violence that has rocked the country since last year. Mnangagwa, who is struggling to convince the West that he is leading a 'new dispensation' that respects people's basic rights, told Parliament that he was going to investigate accusations of rights abuses.
