the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No. 18) Act is not good
National Constitutional Assembly (NCA)
of Zimbabwe Amendment (No.18) Act is designed not to serve the
interests of the people but of those to the ruling politicians of
the day. For this reason it stands condemned and undemocratic.
The Act is being imposed
on the people. No government no matter how popular and no president
no matter his credentials must be allowed to author a constitution.
The Act seeks to safeguard
the interests of Zanu PF so that it clings on to power while the
majority of Zimbabweans continue to suffer under an undemocratic
The Act is piecemeal.
Zimbabwe needs a new constitution and not piecemeal amendments to
the current constitution, which has been amended 17 times since
The Act does not allow
the people to elect a president of their own choice instead the
party does, thereby denying Zimbabweans their right of electing
a leader they want through transparent and democratic means.
The act is there
to award ZANU-PF chefs at the expense of the majority of Zimbabweans
who do not have access to basics such as food, health education
and clean water.
The Act it is elitist. Constitution making process must remain a
preserve of the people and for this cause Zimbabweans must unite
and push for a people driven, democratic constitution.
