Oct. 16, 2019

The commission was headed by former South African president Kgalema Motlanthe and included a British human rights barrister and a former Commonwealth secretary-general. Its key recommendations included reforming Zimbabwe's laws and prosecuting those responsible for the violence.

The Zimbabwean government is currently modernising 30 laws enacted during the Robert Mugabe era, to meet Western standards. Controversial emergency and media laws are being replaced with new legislations that are currently in Parliament.

"Zimbabwe has rapidly begun the task of implementing the Commission's key recommendations – that include reforming legislation on law and order, freedom and liberalisation of the media and electoral reform," Minister Moyo said.
