NCA in full support of ZCTU stay away call
National Constitutional Assembly (NCA)
September 14, 2007

The NCA is in full support of the Stay Away that the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has called for 19 and 20 September 2007.

It is no secret that the workers of Zimbabwe and indeed the majority of Zimbabweans are suffering as a result of the current government's flawed socio-economic policies. These defective policies are a result of an undemocratic constitution that gives unlimited powers to the Executive arm of government at the expense of the welfare of the majority of Zimbabweans.

It was as a result of the existence of a defective constitution that workers of Zimbabwe and other stakeholders came together in 1997 and formed the NCA to spearhead the campaign for a democratic and people-driven constitution that can help bring democracy and development to Zimbabwe. Being satisfied by the current constitutional order that is primarily designed to let it continue in power forever, the Zimbabwean government has persistently and constantly turned down the people of Zimbabwe's demand for a new, democratic and people-constitution.

As a result of the ZANU PF government's interest to continue in power, Zimbabweans continue to be exposed to a constitution that has brought untold suffering to the majority of citizens.

In pursuit of a democratic and prosperous Zimbabwe, the NCA urges the workers of Zimbabwe to take heed of the ZCTU Stay away call and continue pressing for a democratic and people-driven constitution that will help bring better living conditions to the suffering people of Zimbabwe.
