In a dramatic statement, exiled former Cabinet minister Saviour Kasukuwere has sounded the alarm, calling on election observers and the international community to closely monitor the surge in political violence during this year’s elections.

Kasukuwere, who was recently barred from running as an independent presidential candidate, expressed concern that the escalating violence could seriously undermine the credibility of the electoral process.

Kasukuwere’s plea comes amidst chilling incidents of brutality, with the latest tragedy involving the stoning to death of Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) supporter Tinashe Chitsunge by suspected Zanu PF supporters in Glen View, Harare. The leader of CCC, Nelson Chamisa, also fell victim to an attack on his convoy on the same day. These sh0cking acts of violence have raised serious questions about the safety and fairness of the democratic process.

Speaking out against these disturbing incidents, Kasukuwere condemned the attacks as an assault not only on the victims but also on the very foundations of democracy. He emphasized the need for observers and international bodies to play an active role in monitoring the voting process and ensuring that violence is curbed. Kasukuwere’s call for action reflects the growing concerns among Zimbabweans, as an Afrobarometer survey revealed that 70% of the population fears being caught up in violence surrounding the elections.

Demanding justice for victims and denouncing intimidation and harassment, Kasukuwere made it clear that no Zimbabwean should have to pay the price for exercising their democratic rights. He stressed that a nation governed by the principles of freedom, fairness, and equality should have no place for such violence.

While President Emmerson Mnangagwa has pledged to maintain peace before and after the polls, human rights watchdogs have pointed fingers at his ruling party, Zanu PF, as the main perpetrator of violence. However, the party vehemently denies these accusations.

As Zimbabwe braces for a highly contentious election, the world watches closely to see if the international community can help ensure a fair and peaceful democratic process. The fate of Zimbabwe’s credibility hangs in the balance as the nation grapples with the urgent need to address the alarming rise in political violence.
