We, the International Election Observer Missions present for the 30 July Harmonised Elections in Zimbabwe, while appreciating the generally peaceful and orderly pre-electoral environment and on voting day, express our grave concern about the regrettable outbreaks of post-election violence.
At the outset, we extend our sympathies to the families and loved ones of those affected by these troubling incidents.
While recognising the right to peaceful protest, we condemn vandalism and destruction of property and call on political party supporters to abide by the law.

The premises and equipment of the Administrative Service Centre (ASC) in Troitske were overhauled as part of UNDP's Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme, with financial support from the European Union.
There are an estimated 370 million indigenous people worldwide, living across 90 countries. They make up less than 5 per cent of the world's population, but account for 15 per cent of the poorest. Nevertheless, indigenous peoples contribute to the diversity and richness of civilizations and cultures and indeed to our common heritage. The EU, together with the rest of the world, celebrates this contribution on International Day for the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
