Review of the Zimbabwe Political Agreement 4 Years on

Dear Friends

Today 15 September 2012 it is 4 years since the leaders of the political parties represented in the Zimbabwean parliament signed the historic agreement that paved way for the formation of the inclusive government; the Global Political Agreement (GPA).

In a report released today Zimbabwean and European civil society organisations, through their umbrella organisations Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition, NANGO, , ZCTU, Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum and ZEN express disappointment at the phase of implementation of the GPA. At the same time the organisations call upon the EU and the rest of the international community to continue their support for the implementation of the agreement by the Inclusive Government, and to continue its support for the facilitation efforts of SADC. Find the full report on: http://www.zimbabweeurope.org/sites/default/files/ZIMBABWE%20GPA%20IMPLEMENTTION.pdf.
