ZIMBABWE is suffering "persistent and serious" human rights violations despite the formation of a unity government four months ago, Amnesty International's secretary-general Irene Khan said yesterday.

"The situation is precarious and the socioeconomic conditions are desperate for the vast majority of Zimbabweans," she said in Harare.

"The failure to introduce reforms of the police, army and security forces, address impunity and the lack of clear commitment of some parts of government, are real obstacles that need to be confronted by the top leadership of Zimbabwe," Khan said. - Sapa-AFP
