Zimbabwe Peace Project also known as ZPP is a human rights monitoring group in Zimbabwe. The ZPP was established in 2000 by a group of civilians and church members.[1] It is critical of the human rights situation in Zimbabwe, and its Director Jestina Mukoko was abducted by secret Police and freed only after Zimbabwe High Court orders. It is a non-registered organization and has faced many obstacles because the government suspected that they are creating violence among the society.[2] ZPP alleged that human rights lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa had been kidnapped.[2] ZPP was involved in documenting human rights abuses by the Zimbabwe government.[3][4] Other activists have also been abducted by the Secret Police.
