outreach meetings in Manicaland commenced today in Nyanga North,
but only four teams went out for their meetings out of the ten teams
due to some mobilising setbacks.
This is the
third time in two weeks that COPAC teams have failed to turn up
for their scheduled meetings. There was no activity in the province
last week on Thursday and Friday due to administrative problems
and misunderstandings among COPAC team members. Although COPAC has
been facing challenges in fulfilling their obligation, the people
of Manicaland have remained undeterred as evidenced by the outstanding
turnout for meetings.
Some of the
issues participants were open about include a limited presidential
term of two, 5-year terms in office; an independent electoral commission
and an independent human rights commission.
Constitution Management Committee was scheduled to meet with one
of its partner organisations today to discuss ways to raise the
US$8 million supplementary budget for the 25 days added to the outreach
