Zimbabwe: human rights activist Paul Chizuze missing

Paul Chizuze

Paul Chizuze

Churches and human rights groups in Zimbabwe have put out an urgent appeal for the whereabouts of Paul Chizuze, a long established Zimbabwean human rights activist. Paul has been missing since 8pm on Wednesday 8 February 2012.

Over the last three decades, Paul has been either employed by, or active with, the Legal Resources Foundation, Amani Trust Matabeleland, The Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace, ZimRights, Churches in Bulawayo, CivNet, and Masakhaneni Trust.

WHERE IS PAUL?

He allegedly left his home around 8pm on 8 February, and what happened after this remains a mystery.  He may have been murdered, hijacked or abducted by parties unknown. His car, a white twin cab Nissan Hardbody Reg Number ACJ 3446 is also missing.

Paul has searched for other activists and never given up. We appeal to the police to pursue all the possibilities, and we in civics vow to maintain a campaign to find Paul wherever he may be.
