ZImbabwe's NCA Defers Congress Till After Constitutional Referendum

The National Constitutional Assembly said it will only hold its congress after the constitutional referendum that is expected at the end of the year or early next year.

NCA spokesman Madock Chivasa said it was unanimously agreed over the weekend that the current leadership continue leading the organization’s “No Vote Campaign”.

The assembly is also said to be broke to hold a the congress since donors have opted to back the government-headed constitution project, Copac.

Chivasa told reporter Jonga Kandemiiri the deferment of the congress was not a tactic by the current leadership to stay in office.

Independent political analyst Charles Mutasa said financial constraints could be the real reason behind the postponement of the NCA congress.
