The MDC formation led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said ZANU-PF supporters on Monday disrupted an outreach meeting at the Kaziro business center in Shamva North constituency, Mashonaland Central province

More problems cropped up this week as Zimbabwe's constitutional revision outreach process geared up again following a one-week break as more than 40 outreach team members were refused access to hotel rooms in Orange Grove and Chinhoyi Caves in Mashonaland West province because organizers had not pre-paid accommodation.

Parliamentary Select Committee Co-Chairman Douglas Mwonzora said the incident resulted from a misunderstanding between the United Nations Development Program, which is funding the exercise, and the hotels concerned.

He told VOA Studio 7 reporter Jonga Kandemiiri efforts were being made to settle the dispute.

Elsewhere, the Movement for Democratic Change formation led by Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said ZANU-PF supporters on Monday disrupted an outreach meeting at the Kaziro business center in Shamva North constituency, Mashonaland Central. MDC Mashonaland Central Chairman Godfrey Chimombe said ZANU-PF supporters became rowdy after MDC Chairwoman Martha Muronzi submitted a written comment to the outreach team during the meeting.

Mashonaland Central Outreach team leader and ZANU-PF lawmaker Edward Chindori-Chininga confirmed the disturbances but denied that supporters of his party had caused them.
