Please take note that with effect from Monday 23 March 2020, Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has not been receiving any walk-in clients at all our offices across the country as part of measures to limit contact between our beneficiaries, staff and other stakeholders during the period of the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) until further notice.
We have taken this decision to complement some preventative measures to minimise contact and curb the possible spread of COVID-19. During this time, ZLHR secretariat and some member lawyers are practicing social distancing measures.
Further, following the announcement on Monday 23 March 2020 by Judicial Service Commission on limited operations of the courts, certain category of cases will be attended to by the courts. As part of the legal fraternity, ZLHR is also playing its part to reduce the possible spread of COVID-19 in the country.
