By A Correspondent- The European Union has challenged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to observe the constitution and respect human rights.

The western bloc said this in a statement after the re-engagement dialogue meeting they had this week with Harare.

“Furthermore, we discussed human rights, democratisation, rule of law and good governance. The EU reaffirmed the need to pay special attention to these topics, also with the growing impact the global pandemic is having on these shared values.

“We are concerned about a shrinking democratic space, the lack of progress in addressing reports of violations of human rights by the security forces and in thoroughly investigating reported cases of forced disappearances,” said EU in a statement.
