Report Calls Out Zimbabwean Security Forces Ahead of Elections

The international non-governmental organization Human Rights Watch called for security reforms for the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in Zimbabwe. In a 44-page report, the organization claimed that “Zimbabwe’s security forces, notably the military, have, for several years, interfered in the nation’s political and electoral affairs in ways that have adversely affected the ability of Zimbabwean citizens to vote freely."
