Socio-economic situation & allegations of human rights abuses in Zimbabwe

Published
The Zimbabwean government has been in the news over a series of incidents of crackdowns and alleged human rights abuses by the country's ruling party.
This includes the arrest of Job Sikhala, a member of the legislature and an MP from the country's main opposition party, the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) Alliance. Sikhala is one of the people who reportedly went into hiding last month after the police issued a warrant for his arrest. In a similar incident, investigative journalist and human rights activist Hopewell Chin'ono, who has written extensively on alleged government corruption and human rights abuses, is still in police custody after being denied bail for the second time.

And now the leader of the Catholic church has been summoned to a meeting following a scathing letter sent by the church to the government regarding human rights violations in the country.
Nelson Chamisa, the leader of MDC Alliance, Zimbabwe's main opposition party joins us now.
