Fighting for change in Zimbabwe

Freedom House recently sponsored the visit of Beatrice Mtetwa, a renowned lawyer from Zimbabwe and recipient of the 2010 International Human Rights Award. Ms. Mtetwa stressed the need to empower Zimbabwean civil society, ensuring that it has the capacity and strategic foresight to effectively agitate for change within the country. She also cited the need to reform the judiciary and equip lawyers with the necessary skills to uphold the rule of law in a country where basic rights are often violated with impunity.
