The National Transitional Justice Working Group (NTJWG) notes with concern a growing trend in the use of hate speech and the prevalence of intolerance in response to criticism and dissent in Zimbabwe. Of particular concern to the NTJWG is that the increase in the use of hate speech and intolerant language has come at a time when Zimbabwe is grappling with a human rights crisis. The outcry from Zimbabweans from different spheres has been responded to with hate speech, despotism, and intolerance, all of which are barriers to constructive dialogue that results in effective solutions and peacebuilding.
