Cricket association protests, but African governments are silent


The African Commission human rights body is scheduled to meet in Banjul in the West African nation of Gambia next week, ahead of a summit of the continent-wide African Union in January.

The alliance said Zimbabwe authorities continued to harass charities, voluntary organisations and independent journalists and restrict fundamental rights of freedom of movement, free expression, equal protection of the law and access to the nation's courts for redress.

"Almost none of the African Commission's recommendations have been implemented," said the alliance.
