Zimbabwe Rights Group says Constitution Must Not be Based on The Kariba Draft

The Zimbabwe Human Rights Association, ZimRights, has denied reports that it is calling on Zimbabweans to reject any new constitution that will be based on the controversial Kariba draft.

United Kingdom-based The Zimbabwean published Monday a story quoting a ZimRights official Fanuel Mafaro calling on Zimbabweans to reject the Kariba draft, adding that the three political parties in the inclusive government do not have the right to impose a constitution on the country.

But ZimRights National Director Okay Machisa distanced his association from the official’s statements telling reporter Jonga Kandemiiri that they want to see a constitution that is based on the three draft constitutions in the country, namely the NCA, the Chidyausiku and the Kariba.
