Letter on Zimbabwe to the UN General Secretary

11 April 2008

Geneva, 11 April 2008

Your Excellency,

The World Council of Churches would like to add its voice to that of the international community expressed through your important remarks on the situation in Zimbabwe. We want to register our deep concern about the implications of the current political crisis which may be not only regional but also international.

It is my sincere hope that this critical situation will be addressed as a high priority of the international community until peace, justice and stability again become a reality in Zimbabwe.

With my best wishes to you in your enormous duties and responsibilities of leading United Nations.

Yours sincerely,
Rev. Dr Samuel Kobia
General Secretary
