Zimbabwe Constitutional Revision Planners Say Security Not Their Responsibility

  • Chris Gande

Security for the outreach process has become a concern amid reports from various provinces that alleged ZANU-PF supporters are intimidating members of the public who do not endorse adoption of the so-called Kariba constitutional draft

Zimbabwe's Parliamentary Select Committee on Constitutional Revision says it cannot afford to pay the police to provide security during the constitutional revision outreach process, as correspondent Irwin Chifera reported.

Security for the outreach process has become a major concern amid reports from various provinces that alleged ZANU-PF supporters are intimidating and even assaulting those who resist adoption of the Kariba draft which the former ruling party of President Robert Mugabe says should become the basis of the new document.

Select committee member Reggie Moyo, member of Parliament for Cowdray Park, Bulawayo, told VOA Studio 7 reporter Chris Gande that the police lack the means to provide security for the outreach process.
