"We are increasingly becoming gravely disturbed by reports out of
Zimbabwe on the intensification of hostile posturing and other
belligerent activities by pro-Mugabe paramilitary groups, on the one
side, and, on the other side, by the systemic crackdown on media
workers and associated civil society actors. This state of affairs
suggests that President Mugabe is intent on embarking on a wholesale
assault on the population while at the same time ensuring that this
does not become known to the international community", warned NSHR
executive director, Phil ya Nangoloh, in the Namibian capital,
Windhoek, this morning.
As envisaged in the 2005 World Summit Outcome Document of the United Nations, the international community has the prime responsibility to protect (R2P)
populations from imminent and massive human rights abuses and other
humanitarian crises, such as genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and
crimes against humanity. R2P is a new international doctrine
obliging the international community to intervene in order to prevent
gross human rights abuses once a State fails in its duty to protect and
shield its own population from grave breaches of international law."

Delegates,
the responsibility to protect website has various articles about the Zimbabwe issue.
Look also if Robert Mugabe is condemned for war crimes, and etc.. Search if the power-sharing deal is working..

South Africa is in favor of Kenya, and is willing to help change the political situation in Zimbabwe. We agree that Mugabe have made such acts contributing to the poor political situation ocurring in Zimbabwe over the past years.

Delegate of South Africa, the chair appreciates the delegate's intent of giving replies to such comments and keep the conversations going on, however this is not an example of a constructive post. Bring new ideas, reveal other situations and possibly demonstrate some possible solutions to this issue. Show don't tell. If South Africa is in favor of Kenya, demonstrate what South Africa is doing that demonstrates this support. It will make you get prepared for MUN real debate, since one of the best scape ways for questions against you is simply demonstrate good things you have been doing.

President Mugabe has damaged a good economy transforming it into a huge crisis in which citizens today are being tortured to vote for its own president; and to save the economy expelled white farmers from their own farms to help landless black citizens who were loyal to his government using the excuse that it was a revenge for the white colonists who stole their land years ago.

Hey delegates,
I would like to add up to all that was already said about Zimbabwe. Congo believes that Zimbabwe' s government is totally messing up the country's status. For this reason, I would like to add some facts that prove such idea.

-Robert Mugabe’s militia is responsible for the murder of 100 Zimbabweans, for the injury of 10,000, and for the displacement of 200,000 people, as well as the burning of houses and the torturing of innocent people, who opposed the president’s government.

- Robert Mugabe tortured the opposition party by:
1) having Zanu PF militiamen burn alive Mrs. Chipiro,wife of Patson Chipiro, head of Zimbabwean opposition party
2) suspending all work promoted by independent aid agencies, non- governmental organizations, and private voluntary organization for indefinite time because the President believed that these organizations were campaigning for opposition parties.

-Zimbabwe's annual inflation rate is 231million %, the largest in the world!!

Congo believes that some adjustments to be made should be the following:

1) Resignation of the President Robert Mugabe
2) Creation of a new elections to judge the most adequate president for the country
3) Restoration of democracy
4) Investigation for Robert Mugabe’s errors throughout the ICC
5) Ask for financial help in order to improve the country’s: health issues, population’s protection, education, famine, security, etc.

The situation in Zimbabwe is really poor, political violence and political instability is not the only problem in Zimbabwe but also the health care is very poor, many people are dying from diseases and education that is also really bad. Because of this fact people are moving into South Africa searching for their survival.

The delegate would like to bring one of the latest news of Zimbabwe, published in NY Times on October 29th. The UN torture investigator, Manfred Nowak was going to meet wim Zimbabwe's prime minister, Morgan Tsvangirai but he was detained by a guard and ejected by Zimbabwe. The investigator, described this action as "totally unhead of behavior".He was planning to investigate human rights violations and added by saying that he would not come back to Zimbabwe not even if he was invited.The delegate of Kenya believes that Zimbabwe is becoming each more time uncompromissed with its dutty on improving Zimbabwe and this was just another issue of complains from Zimbabwe's government.

The delegate wants to consider that the inflation in Zimbabwe is of 13.2billion per month. So the situation in Zimbabwe is really bad and there is a need to have a change now, because the situation is getting worse since the time is passing

Hey delegates, these are some news that are occuring in Zimbabwe for the past months.
As everyone know, the situation in the country is intriguing every habitant of Zimbabwe. In October 15, there was a report in the BBC, with a title of : Hope remains cautious in Zimbabwe. By this phrase it is possible to notice that hope is what the Zimbabweans are looking for. The news state that Robert Mugabe has joined with Morgan Tvsvangirai to form a "unity government". But is this something the people is looking forward to? What is being said is that "the politicians have been talking about a new constitution and a free media.," which may at least be a step. Also, the BBC professional, who is a Zimbabwean had gone back to his country after living in London, to check out what is his country's current situation. As he said:
"I grew up in post-independence Zimbabwe and the drive to Harare city centre was familiar, but heartbreaking.
I had been home just a few years ago and yet the infrastructure had somehow managed to get even worse. "

With that being said, we can notice how critical the situation is. To view this report: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/from_our_own_correspondent/8307815.stm

The current situation in Zimbabwe never got more alarming than it is now.
The growth of crimes in Zimbabwe continues to increase as the days go by. Despite the fact that people were already being kidnapped, tortured and even being murdered, now the kids are being rapped. The situation is horrible and to escape from this they are going out of the country.
"Due to the economic situation where we have seen a lot of parents going to neighbouring countries, like South Africa, in search of greener pastures, they are leaving their children to the care of others - uncles and aunts for example," - Chipo Mukome, a clinic counsellor says.

Delegates, I have researched more and found out some other important news about the situation in Zimbabwe.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/kent/8305788.stm
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/8318147.stm
Both these links are related to the farmers in Zimbabwe. I believe that this was a topic mentioned in the resolution by the Kenyan delegates. I beleieve it will be very useful to get some recent info about this point.
