Several civic groups have joined the new social movement, This Constitution, Our Constitution, campaign launched last month to press the Zanu PF regime to the country’s governance charter. The groups include Bulawayo Youths Arise, Youths Advocacy for Reform and Democracy, Active Youths Zimbabwe, Progress Co-ordinating Trust and Zimbabwe Liberation Peace Forum.
Speaking to NewsDay Abigale Mupambi, an official of the This Constitution, Our Constitution campaign, said,
We, the people of Zimbabwe, cannot fold our hands when our Constitution is under siege. We are going to take to the streets and make it public that we are not happy with the way our Constitution has been abused by the government.
Mupambi also said they were still negotiating with more organisations and individuals to be part of the cause before they roll out demonstrations throughout the country.
