Zimbabwe human rights advocates who excelled this year were honored for their work on Thursday as the country joined other world nations in commemorating Human Rights Day.
The 2015 Human Rights Lawyer of the Year Awards were issued by the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights in conjunction of the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum.
Winners include Brian Dube, Tanaka Muganji, Langton Mhunga, Tonderai Bhatasara, Marufu Mandevere, Kudzai Kadzere and Gift Mtisi.
Mtisi said he was grateful for the recognition, adding he will continue pushing for civil liberties.
“I’m happy for the appreciation because when I was working, I was not working for that recognition. I was just doing my job,” said Mtisi.
