These Committees were mandated to solve con icts in their areas to avoid a "one-size- ts-all" approach which was proved impractical. As a follow up to the establishment of the Provincial Peace Committees the NTJWG on the 2nd of September published the NTJWG Report on the Establishment of Provincial Peace Committees. The report looks into the roles and responsibilities of the PPCs and the challenges the PPCs might face in the near future by the NPRC. | ISSUE 10 The report can be accessed at http://www.ntjwg.org.zw/downloads/news/NTJWG%20Report% 20on20the%20Establishment%20of%20Provincial%20Peace20 Committees%20by%20the%NPRC.pdf.

Stakeholders in Action Appeal to Extension of the Lifespan of the NPRC Earlier this year in March, Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights was granted an order by the High Court of Zimbabwe extending the lifespan of the NPRC. The judgment was set to see the lifespan of the NPRC lapsing in January 2028 and not August 2023 as it was initially supposed to. This landmark judgment marked a massive feat for transitional justice in Zimbabwe. Unfortunately, this decision was appealed by the government of Zimbabwe and the appeal was heard in the Supreme Court representing on the 30th of September. The NTJWG anxiously awaits the nalization of this matter.

ZPP held the commemorations at Manjolo Community Centre on the 21st of September.
