in full support of ZCTU stay away call
National Constitutional Assembly (NCA)
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.
