Harare, June 14 2018- We join others in condemning the murder of two-year-old Professor Lumbe – a senseless and horrific act.  We echo the call for the perpetrators to be held accountable. We understand an investigation is ongoing, but should this murder prove to be politically motivated, failure to provide justice for Professor and his family will call into question the capability and commitment of Zimbabwe to conduct free, fair, and credible elections, as will a continuation of violence during this campaign season.  We send our sincere condolences to the grieving family and express hope that Zimbabweans are spared further bloodshed.
