Prof Austin, Chairman of Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission, Resign In Frustration!
December 31, 2012 in Uncategorized
The Chairman of the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) resigns in frustration over the Commission’s ineffectiveness.
“As a national human rights institution the commission must be independent and properly capacitated.” Prof Austin cited sections of the ZHRC Act and electoral laws that he said impinged on the commission’s work.
In a country used to Police Officers turning a blind eye to violence and thuggery as long as it is Zanu PF carrying out the violations; it is universally accept Zanu PF leaders and supporters are above the law. In a country where Judges routinely refuse bail to none Zanu PF supporters arrested on tramped up charges for months on end but Zanu PF murderers go free; reaffirming that Zanu PF are above the law.
In a country with more President, Vice Presidents, Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Ministers, Ministers, Governors, etc. all costing the impoverished nation a fortune but all doing nothing; they are all in it for the gravy train ride. It is the unwritten but nonetheless universal acknowledge gravy train rule that one should enjoy the benefits of office and say nothing about its relevance, etc. Kudya unyerere!
Look at PM Tsvangirai and his MDC friends they took to gravy train ethos like ducks to water. For the last four and half years the PM has been globe-trotting, chasing women, everything except what the nation elected him to do like implement the democratic reforms, etc.!
It is completely refreshing that someone should resign and refuse to be part of Mugabe’s elaborate façade to hide a totally dysfunctional, corrupt and oppressive autocratic regime. Thank you Professor Austin. Thank you!
