Zimbabwe Human Rights Activist Freed
Jestina Mukoko received a permament stay from prosecution by the Supreme Court of Zimbabwe. The reason was her testimony has to how she was dragged from her home and beaten after being accused of plotting to overthrow the country's President Robert Mugabe.
Ms. Mukoko was also subjected to simulated drowning, locked in a freezer, and other forms of human rights abuses. She also responded by stating that she will celebrate her freedom but will continue her struggle for human rights in Zimbabwe.
While the future of Zimbabwe remains uncertain, at least this decision appears to be a step in the right direction.
