to vote YES
Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA)
March 13, 2013
Women of Zimbabwe
Arise (WOZA) have conducted 600 workshops in the last 2 week to
familiarise members with the 15 February 2013 Draft
Constitution. The workshops were conducted in Bulawayo, Harare and
rural Matabeleland with participation of 16 562 members with 18
percent of those being male members. Time and resources did not
permit the programme to be conducted on all 85000 members.
A feature of
the workshop was an internally authored Draft Constitution Assessment
tool. The tool prepared an overview as to 92 key demands that WOZA
members have made over the last 3 years. Of the 92 demands, 60 were
included in the Draft, 17 were partly acknowledged and 15 were not
achieved. During the workshop, members were asked if they would
be voting on 16th March 2013 and 100 percent said they would turn
out on the day and vote YES for the Draft.
WOZA call on
the government of national unity partners to walk the talk about
zero tolerance for violence in all its forms and to ensure the police
will act impartially to allow citizens to enjoy all their rights
before during and after the referendum.
WOZA call on
Zimbabweans to turn out in their millions and exercise their right
peacefully and to vote YES for the parliamentary select committee
