attacks a strategic political blunder
National Students Union (ZINASU)
July 30, 2007
Students Union (ZINASU) condemns, in the strongest possible terms,
the unrelenting and systematic attack on the National
Constitutional Assembly (NCA) by the desperate and outgoing
Mugabe regime. The unfortunate and sad events of Wednesday 25 July
2007 where more than 300 Human Rights Defenders and campaigners
for a new constitution were brutally assaulted by the police further
confirms the notorious status of Zimbabwe as an outpost of tyranny.
NCA is a legitimate
civic formation, whose core and primary objective is to have a new,
people driven and democratic constitution in the only country we
have, Zimbabwe. It is also their right to assembly and legitimately
demand for a new constitution. It is not the hooliganisation and
thuggerisation of the Zimbabwean body politic that will save the
current regime from imminent spectacular collapse but a holistic
and integrated political settlement, which will act as a framework
for a new constitutional, economic, social and political order premised
on the respect for and protection of human rights.
