The comprehensive Bill of rights in our new Constitution not only makes housing for all a basic right, but also clearly forbids discrimination of any kind. We in the MDC are now putting Kasukuwere on notice that gone are the days in which he could trample on peopleâ€™s rights with impunity. It is ironic that the gentleman purports to be studying law but seems to be missing his lectures.
In this regard, we will be filing a formal complaint with the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission seeking his censure and a binding pledge that he will allocate housing land on a non-partisan basis to all Zimbabwean youths without regard to colour, tribe, religion, and/or political affiliation.
