The trade-off for justice in Zimbabwe has to be peace, professor Adam Habib said on Wednesday.
“You can only temper justice if peace is the dividend,” Habib said at the South African Liaison Office (SALO) dialogue on “South Africa’s relations with Zimbabwe” at the University of Johannesburg, where he was a keynote speaker.
He was speaking on reflections for a sustainable reconstruction in Zimbabwe.
