Changing constitution not a priority: Gumbo

Zanu (PF) has more important national projects than amending the recently adopted constitution, says party spokesperson, Rugare Gumbo.


Gumbo’s statement puts to rest speculations and previous Zanu (PF) and MDC-T rhetoric that they would revisit the constitution should they win two thirds majority in the July 31 elections.

Both parties said the constitution was as a result of compromise and would go under the microscope at the next parliamentary sitting.

“Though we now have the power and enough representation in parliament to do as we please with the constitution, it is not among Zanu (PF) priorities to amend the constitution for now,” Gumbo told The Zimbabwean.

Gumbo said as soon as Mugabe was sworn in as president, the Zanu (PF) government would embark on priority projects such as provision of adequate water to needy people in some parts of Matabeleland.

According to Gumbo, everything that was promised in the party manifesto will be fulfilled.
