THE National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) which was forced to suspend its provincial public hearing meetings on past human rights abuses which were scheduled to start on February 9, 2018, following a High Court interdict by the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum is set to resume it nationwide consultation on 19 February 2018.
