ZIMBABWE - BROKEN PROMISES OR PROGRESS?
- En aften om Zimbabwe, den globale aftale, EUs sanktioner, Diamanter og et land i kaos.
I dag forsøger Zimbabwe at komme sig oven på det politiske og økonomiske kaos som præsidentvalget i 2008 medførte. Men kan den formelle implementering af demokratiske reformer og dannelsen af en
samlingsregering, med Robert Mugabe (ZANU-PF) som præsident og Morgan
Tsvangirei (MDC) som premierminister, skabe reelle politiske og
økonomiske fremskridt i et land der døjer med politisk undertrykkelse
og internationale sanktioner?
Mød to menneskerettighedsaktivister og eksperter i Zimbabweanske forhold, Earnest Mudzengi og Venitia Govender, og hør om udviklingen i Zimbabwe lige nu med udgangspunkt i samlingsregeringen, volden og menneskerettighederne. Hør videre om hvordan de mener befolkningen i Zimbabwe bør bruge en folkelig forankret forfatnings-proces til at løfte landet ud af det politiske og økonomiske kaos som det synkere dybere og dybere ned i.
