The Zimbabwe Vigil's latest petition is now online: https://www.change.org/p/ask-uk-government-to-insist-on-reforms-leading-to-democratic-elections-in-zimbabwe. Please sign it and circulate widely. Thanks.
 
Petition to UK Africa Minister Rory Stewart: Zimbabwean exiles and supporters welcome your visit to Zimbabwe and believe the UK has much to contribute to the country. The euphoria over the removal of the Mugabes has given way to realisation that nothing else has changed. The new leader Emmerson Mnangagwa spoke of democracy but also made clear his overriding allegiance to Zanu PF, which has repeatedly shown it does not believe in democracy. We urge you to insist on free and fair elections in Zimbabwe to determine the will of the people before the UK offers support to Mnangagwa. In particular, we stress the importance of the following: New voters’ roll and an independent election commission, Diaspora vote, Participation of Western election observers, Opposition access to state radio and television,  Police reform and the disbanding of the Central Intelligence Organisation.
