Zimbabwe Women Lawyers Association joins the world in commemorating the World Day Against the Death Penalty.
This is the 12th annual commemoration globally, since the launch of the 1st commemorations by the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty on 10 October 2003. 10 October is globally a date to advocate for the total abolition of the death penalty. The movement continues to gain strength, ground and legitimacy.
On 14 October, ZWLA, together with the NGO Forum, Amnesty International Zimbabwe and Padare will have a media briefing on the death penalty, constitutional provisions and what we are doing to protect the right to life.
