    Administrative chaos, which crippled the first week of the parliamentary constitutional select committee's national consultation exercise, meant to gather the aspirations of Zimbabweans in the new constitution, took centre stage in all the media this week.

    While the government media publicized COPAC's administrative bungling, they censored cases of intimidation and political violence, which the private media and civic organizations reported to be on the increase.

    The outcome of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme's meeting in Israel over the certification of Zimbabwe's controversial Chiadzwa diamonds, which the state-run media and the ZANU PF arm of government distorted, also generated significant interest, alongside Prime Minster Tsvangirai's decision to reshuffle his Cabinet ministers.
