- Gwanda Agenda held a consultative meeting on the proposed
Commission Bill. CSO leaders, business people and political
party leaders were invited to the meeting. The main objective of
the meeting were to assess the content of the Bill so that the leadership
in Gwanda could be able to critique and explain the Bill to their
constituencies. The Gwanda community as has been the norm has always
been left out of major discussions and this meeting was an opportunity
for them to input into the debate of the Human Rights Bill. Gwanda
leaders said they welcomed the formation of the Commission however
stressed that 8 commissioners were not quite representative of the
Zimbabwean community. The least that could have been done could
have been to have a commissioner from each province of the country.
There was also need for consideration of representation of groups
like the disabled, the church, traditional leaders and many other
