    November, 22, 2011

    Civil society organisations in Matabeleland under NANGO's Western Region met in Bulawayo and came up with the following demands from COPAC:

    We demand that;

    COPAC publicizes the summary findings of the District and Provincial specific outreach meetings - We are convinced that this will commit COPAC to explain permissible constitutional issues and explanations why certain specific issues could not be incorporated to the members of the public.

    There should be clarity in terms of the Referendum process and the impact of the result of the Referendum on the future of Zimbabwe. We believe that people of Zimbabwe should be adequately informed about all the processes and stages of the Constitution making process. We implore the importance of COPAC to fully explaining how the referendum will be executed as well as the implications of the result of the referendum. This means giving public information on what will happen in the case of a YES Vote or in case of a NO vote.

    The NANGO Western Region constitutes of the provinces of Bulawayo, Matabeleland North and South.
