Zimbabwe Peace Project Chairman Wellington Mbofana said most of the incidents occurred during the just-completed constitutional revision public outreach process

The Zimbabwe Peace Project in a new report said human rights conditions in the country remain volatile with a rising number of reports in September directly linked to actions by agents of the state security apparatus.

The non-governmental organization said it recorded more than 800 cases of political and human rights abuses, mainly by militants of the former ruling ZANU-PF party of President Robert Mugabe against members of the former opposition Movement for Democratic Change whose main formation is led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai.

Zimbabwe Peace Project Chairman Wellington Mbofana said most of the incidents occurred during the just-completed constitutional revision public outreach process, and were concentrated in Mashonaland East, Central and West provinces in eastern Manicaland province and in central Midlands province.
