MDC not happy with constitution

mdc_logoCHITUNGWIZA The MDC is not happy with the constitution making process that is currently underway, according to National Spokesperson Nelson Chamisa, who accused COPAC of being secretive in its operations.

Speaking at a rally over the weekend, Chamisa said that the party was ready for elections but only after a new constitution had been penned and adopted. “We are not happy with the constitution, COPAC is conducting its duties in secret, there is no debate,” said Chamisa.

Outreach meetings thus far have been lowly attended due to a lack of information, while in rural areas of the country people are not informed on time about the meetings. Chamisa said that the party would look at the document produced from the current opinion gathering and will decide whether to endorse the draft or not.

“The constitution is the midwife that will lead us to a new Zimbabwe, the public media should be used to talk about the constitution, and other national events and not be used as a tool for a political parties,” he added. Despite the enormity of the constitution making process the public media has not taken the lead in creating national awareness.
