New constitution is Zanu PF victory: Mnangagwa

By Itai Muzondo
Vice – President, Emerson Mnangagwa today told a gathering in Masvingo that the new constitution is ZANU PF driven, as people who voted the referendum are the same who voted for in the 2013 harmonized elections which gave power to the revolutionary party.
Speaking at an event organized by the Ministry of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs aimed at allowing the minister to unpack the provisions of the new constitution, Mnangagwa told hundreds of people at Masvingo Polytechnic that  ZANU PF supporters who helped the party to win elections were the same who voted for a “yes” to the referendum.
 “The nation is ruled by many who consist of the ruling government, not forgetting the majority who put the government to power through the ballot, “said Mnangagwa..
Mnangagwa further likened ZANU PF influence to that of the biblical era where Solomon was instructed to take charge of Israel’s twelve tribes in providing and submitting to God’s law.

“This is not unique to modern day or ZANU PF alone where the ruling elite has influence to the rule of law as it can be traced back to biblical times where Solomon was instructed to lead many, that is the twelve tribes of Judah under God’s commandment with ultimate influence of enacting the law,” said Mnangagwa.
Meanwhile, Permanent Secretary in The Ministry of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Virginia Mabhiza highlighted that the Ministry has since printed more than 500 000 copies of the Zimbabwean constitution in English, 350 000 in other languages and 4 000 in braille for the benefit of the visually impaired.
She further said that as government they are trying by all means to bear with the obligation that they have to align all laws and out of 390 laws which had been set for alignment, 158 have been identified as key areas where alignment is needed.
“The Ministry have since printed more than 500 000 copies of the constitution in English, 350 000 in other languages and 4 000 in braille.
“We have also taken it to be a government obligation that we align the laws to the new constitution as we have by now had 158 laws set aside as critical for alignment out of the total 390,” said Mabhiza.local
