All Peoples Congress Leader Nason Msoni says the disproportionate use of force being applied by security forces on defenseless and unarmed civilians in Zimbabwe must be condemned in the strongest terms.
Mr. Msoni has urged the government in Zimbabwe to exercise maximum restraint and employ dignity and decorum in dealing with protesters.
He said the government in Zimbabwe must observe and respect human rights in its efforts to restore law and order.
“As concerned Zambian citizens and neighbours to Zimbabwe we are deeply appalled by the use of disproportionate force unleashed on unarmed citizens of Zimbabwe”, He added.
Mr. Msoni said the disturbing images of law enforcement officers ruthlessly beating up and maiming defenseless women is shocking and absolutely sickening.
“We urge the do-nothing SADC to rise to the occasion and stop hiding behind the veil of sovereignty when atrocities are being committed in Zimbabwe with impunity”, he added.
