Addressing the summit, Mahere revealed that half the population in Zimbabwe lives under extreme poverty while over US$2.2 billion is lost to corruption annually.

She raised issues of impartiality and judicial independence. Mahere said the courts are captured by ZANU PF.

She said as election time comes near, Zimbabweans should go to the ballot box with one mission to win the country and install new competent leaders.
