Local legislators have reminded Civil Society organizations CSOs, religious and traditional leaders that they have a duty to educate the Great Dyke populace on the provisions of the country’s constitution.
Speaking to Great Dyke News 24 Zvishavane-Runde Legislator Cuthbert Mpame said CSOs and leaders should equip residents with information on legislation and amendments to ensure the masses are involved in law-making.
He added that residents that still have something to add to the second-amendment consultations can do so via the parliament’s email platform.
Zimbabwe adopted a home-grown constitution in 2013, which was first amended to enable the President of the Republic to handpick a chief justice and the judge president of the High Court.
Public hearings are currently in progress over a number of changes to the constitution including the issue of the running mate.
