Residents Urge Govt to Implement Devolution of Power

  • Sithandekile Mhlanga

Residents supported the inclusion of devolution in the new constitution and therefore want to ensure it is implemented.

Residents Associations throughout the country say they have combined efforts to compel the government to fully implement provisions of the new constitution, especially devolution of power to “promote citizen-focused interests in policy formulation and public accountability mechanisms.”

The associations met with other stakeholders in Bulawayo late last week, and resolved to draft a petition to the clerk of parliament, as a first step towards achieving their goals.

The program is coordinated by the Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association and the Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association.

Organizing secretary for the Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association, Ambrose Sibindi said residents supported the inclusion of devolution in the new constitution and therefore want to ensure it is implemented.
