star this property answer text <p>​As I said in the House of Commons on 3 September, we are gravely concerned by the heavy-handed response by police to protests in Harare on 16 August and the recent arrests and abductions of opposition figures. Our Ambassador raised our concerns with the Foreign Minister on 22 August and the Defence Minister on 29 August. President Mnangagwa must hold those responsible for human rights violations to account. Zimbabwe remains one of the UK’s 30 Human Rights Priority Countries globally.</p> more like this

The response has been hampered by numerous attacks against health workers and health facilities. The UK strongly condemns such attacks, while commending the bravery of all the health workers working tirelessly to end the outbreak. The UK is working with the UN and other donors to ensure strengthened security in Ebola affected areas that protects both communities and frontline workers, while not undermining local trust in the response.</p> more like this
