Some Zimbabweans are planning to stage protests over the beating up of Patson Dzamara, the brother of political activist Itai Dzamara who was abducted by unknown assailants a year. Patson Dzamara, who staged a one-man protest yesterday at the National Sports Stadium where President Robert Mugabe was addressing thousands of people to mark the country’s 36th independence anniversary, was beaten up by suspected state security agents.
Staff director for the United States House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights, Gregory B. Simpkins, says targeted sanctions imposed by the West are not to blame for Zimbabwe’s economic disaster.
Some Zimbabweans say they have not yet enjoyed the fruits of independence following black majority rule in 1980.
We will take closer look at President Mugabe’s remarks that some companies are performing well in Zimbabwe’s devastated economy.
