Zimbabwe youth group calls for Mugabe to be tried in The Hague

The Zimbabwe Youth Wing has called for President Robert Mugabe to face charges of crimes against humanity in The Hague and for the United Nations to monitor elections in the country.

A handful of activists handed over a human rights declaration to the U.N. offices in Pretoria on Monday. The organisation accused Mugabe’s regime of creating poverty for members of opposition parties, while allowing the Zanu-PF political elite to prosper.

The youth wing’s Brian Mzuringa said the organisation wanted the U.N. Security Council to intervene and called for free and fair elections.
 
“We expect the U.N. to be responsible for entirely everything in terms of monitoring,” he said.
