Heal Zimbabwe has claimed that it continually works to protect and assist survivors of political violence and ensure that they are able to access justice and requisite social services.

The trust said it intervened in the cases recorded this week by referring the victims and forwarding the cases for further investigation to the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) and the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC).

"HZT as a peace building and conflict transformation organisation condemns all forms of human rights violations and calls upon community members to coexist peacefully. The organisation is currently following up on some of the perpetrators through target engagement and lobbying exercises with the aim of ensuring that they desist from violating other peoples' rights," said the trust.

"In an attempt to reduce violence and human rights cases, Heal Zimbabwe is currently reaching out to community members especially youth country wide to desist from engaging in violent activities under its National Peace Campaign dubbed 13 Million Voices for Peace."
