over the weekend in Mashonaland West and Matebeleland South recorded
high levels of participation and turnout.
One meeting held in Mashonaland
West at Mufumamuto had approximately 300 attendees. Chikomba are,
where COPAC is currently operating in Mashonaland West has been
identified as having one of the most peaceful environments by the
COPAC teams operating in the province.
Meanwhile, an incident
of intimidation has been reported in the Beatrice area, in the same
province. An individual was arrested after a meeting on false charges
off vandalism, after airing out independent views against ZANU PF's
position, at the command of an army brigadier.
Although Chikomba meetings
recorded a high turnout, most of the responses still reflect mere
parroting of political positions, which are mostly biased towards
MDC, rather than individual views. A significant improvement also
observed over the weekend is the increase in youth participation.
Meanwhile in Matebeleland
South a continued increase in participants is being reported. One
meeting had a turnout as high as 380 people. Some of the issues,
which were unanimously voted for, are freedom of participation,
expression and association.
