Watchdogs Accuse Zimbabwe Govt of Partisan Food Aid Distribution

Human rights organisations have warned the ruling Zanu-PF party against the partisan distribution of COVID-19 aid meant for vulnerable households facing hunger during the 21-day lockdown. This comes as the United Nations has warned that about 8 million Zimbabweans face starvation due to the worsening economic challenges and recurring droughts that have affected harvests. Economic experts have also warned that Zimbabwe's economic and hunger woes are set to worsen due to the effects of COVID-19.
