There was widespread violence in the pre-election period. Most of this violence was directed at candidates and supporters of political parties in opposition to Zanu (PF), and against commercial farmers and workers on commercial farms.

In the cities and towns the army has been harassing and assaulting people in high density areas. There continue to be violent attacks and death threats against members and supporters of the MDC. People are still fleeing some rural areas to escape the violence. Commercial farmers and their workers continue to be attacked and threatened.
