A church representative organisation, Zimbabwe Christian Alliance (ZCA) has asked why opposition political parties are not involved in initiatives meant to promote devolution.
Speaking during a ZCA advocacy meeting in the Ancient Town of Masvingo on Thursday, ZCA provincial co-ordinator Reverend Sonykiss Chimbuya said:
What we expect to see is the involvement of all political parties pushing for devolution.
If others choose to stay away from such important issues yet they were part and parcel of the constitution-making process which came up with devolution, we will not be making justice to the whole process.
We should see our MP for Masvingo Urban (Mr Jacob Nyokanhete) contributing at devolution meetings.
A senior civil servant in Masvingo province called upon all political parties, churches, youths and women to take part in the devolution process.
Deputy Provincial Administrator Netsai Mushauri asserted that devolution will result in the equitable distribution of resources.
