CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY – 12TH AUGUST 2020
12th August 2020
Restoration of Human Rights (ROHR) Zimbabwe joins the rest of the progressive world in celebrating International Youth Day today 12th August 2020.
We acknowledge, appreciate and applaud the leadership of the youth in Zimbabwe including the young people who lead feminist movements or organizations. These are some of the most powerful drivers of change and that is one of the reasons why we throw our weight behind them.
This includes young female leaders like Namatirai Kwekweza, Vongai Zimudzi, Noxolo Maphosa and a lot more others who are braving the wrath and brutality of a rabid regime to fight for the rights and freedoms of the people of Zimbabwe.
We also acknowledge, appreciate and applaud young male leaders like Terence Gata, Yongerson Matete, Tawanda Muchehiwa, Josphat “Mzaca” Ngulube and a whole host of others.
Their efforts will not go unnoticed. The future of Zimbabwe lies in the hands of the youth of Zimbabwe.
We take this opportunity to urge the government of Zimbabwe to start upholding and respecting all the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the African (Banjul) Charter on Human and People’s Rights and the Constitution of Zimbabwe.
Human rights are everyone’s rights.
