Public Consultations On The Death Penalty

Public discussions on the death penalty are being held all over the nation by the Ministry of Justice, Legal, and Parliamentary Affairs.

The consultations’ goal is to assemble the opinions of the people and different stakeholders.

The opinions gathered will have an impact on how the proposed death penalty legislation is written.

In Zimbabwe, the last execution took place in 2005, and since then, death penalties have been changed to life in prison.

The consultation period will last from today, March 27, until April 7, 2023.
