Like everything else in Zimbabwe civil society is has become so corrupted that the Zimbabwe Human Rights Association (ZimRights) has given a human rights award to Joseph Chinotimba, a Zanu (PF) MP best know for his human rights violations and jokes.
Even a member of the MDC-T whose members have been tortured, if not killed by Chinotimba, were happy to have their pictures taken together with Chinotimba at the awards ceremony.
Chinotimba worked as a security guard for the Harare City Council and joined the police section of the Municipal Council in 1982 , eventually becoming a chief inspector before leading the violent invasions of commercial farms in Zimbabwe in which whites were killed.
The lawless invasions were encouraged by President Robert Mugabe to assure Zanu (PF) another life in Parliament after a stiff challenge from MDC, and Chinotimba referred to himself as the commander of land invasions. Cde Chinos - Human Rights Award Winner
