SADC has called for a collective effort in resolving the crisis in Zimbabwe. The current chair of its Organon politics, defence, and security co-operation says what’s happening there, affects neighbouring countries. The statement follows a march in Harare by hundreds of lawyers to the Constitutional Court calling for the immediate restoration of the rule of law and order.
This was amid rape allegations by security forces in some parts of the country which the government has condemned. The country has been on a knife edge since protests broke out two weeks ago over a fuel price hike.
