Passive CSOs, Parties Can't Move Zanu (PF)

MajomeJsmallCivic NGOs have deplored the cosmetic nature of public hearings on the Electoral Amendment Bill which they say were not undertaken in the spirit of the Section 141 of the Constitution - that Parliament must facilitate public involvement in its legislative processes and in the conduct of its hearings.

He backs up Tendai Biti's claim, which he has since withdrawn, that election rigging was not the main problem in the last election. Sipepa-Nkomo’s estimation, clearly tainted by his current political stance, rigging contributed only 10% the election loss.

But more interesting is that he says, the party was advised not to participate in the election without the critical reforms called for by SADC, though he does not say Morgan Tsvangirai overuled it.

"There was dishonesty on the part of some of our members dating back to our congress which re-elected Morgan Tsvangirai.
