Zimbabwe's parliamentary select committee on constitution revision has suspended some of its officials for allegedly mishandling data collected during consultation meetings.
Sources said COPAC National Co-coordinator, Peter Kunjeku and a Data Manager identified only as a Mrs Fundira, have been suspended following allegations they mishandled data from four unnamed provinces.
The sources said Kunjeku stored the data from the four provinces in an unsecured room at COPAC offices before moving it to the National Archives in unsealed boxes without the select committee’s permission.
The sources added that at a meeting held in Harare Thursday, the select committee was instructed to move the data from its National Archives to a secure place.
Select Committee co-chairman Paul Mangwana told VOA Studio 7 reporter Patience Rusere the officials in question were facing disciplinary hearing for mishandling data.
