There are fears that further delays in aligning over 280 pieces of legislation with Zimbabwe’s new constitution could cause havoc in the judiciary system as some court decisions may soon be struck down as unconstitutional.

Former COPAC chairpersons Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana of Zanu-PF and Edward Mkhosi of the Movement for Democratic Change on Wednesday told Newsday newspaper that they should have set time limits on aligning the laws with the new constitution.

But Zanu-PF parliamentary chief whip Joram Gumbo said they have already started aligning the laws as evidenced by the creation of the position of the prosecutor general.

MDC-T chief whip Innocent Gonese said as parliamentarians they are doing all they can to raise these motions in the House of Assembly.
