    August 26, 2010

    A COPAC outreach team that facilitated a meeting on 25 August at Bingaguru Primary School, in Mashonaland West, recorded a total of 133 people.

    From the participants, it was noted that youth participation is still low, with only 29 youths present.

    Most of the views shared during the meeting were generally one sided, reflecting parroting of a political position. However, the participants started to open up on other thematic areas that have not been politicised, like labour.

    Meanwhile, Manicaland has reports of black out periods in the constitution consultations. Some of the reasons cited are fuel shortages, misunderstanding between team members and disputes over late remuneration for the team members.

    Youth participation, like in other provinces is still low in Manicaland and low male turnout had also been noticed.
