No sloganeering Please! COPAC Bosses Tell Members

About 1 956 Wards are to be covered during the exercise and 17 OutreachTeams have been appointed by government for a new constitution in Zimbabwe.

Constitutional Parliamentary Committee (COPAC) members have been told not to sloganeer or sing party songs when they do their Outreach Programme throughout Zimbabwe.

“There should not be any party songs being sung or slogans made,” said Douglas Mwonzora, one of the COPAC bosses in Harare.

He is a joint committee boss with Paul Mangwana of Zanu PF. Mwonzora is from the MDC-T party.

“Members must desist from making slogans and wearing  party regalia,” said Mangwana in an interview. “The process should be very transparent because we want it to be a success for everyone and everyone should and will benefit.”

The Outreach Teams began with meetings in Mashonaland, Masvingo and the Midlands on Tuesday.

There have been meetings in Mashonaland Central, East and West, as well as in Masvingo and the Midlands.

“People should be asked the 25 sticking points only and not party issues,” Mangwana said when he addressed members at a local hotel.

He said any member breaching these regulations would be removed from the Outeach Team and immediately sent home.
