Biti Condemns Cabinet For Withdrawing ‘Civil Partnerships’ Clause From Marriages Bill

MDC vice president, Tendai Biti, says that the Cabinet’s decision to withdraw section 40 from the Marriages Bills is wrong and ill-advised.

Biti argues that the Zimbabwe public and the Parliament itself must debate the clause. Writing on Twitter, he said:

Surely the regime’s cabinet has no right to withdraw section 40 of the Marriages Bill from Parliament.

The Zimbabwe public and Parliament itself must debate the clause.

Civil partnerships are a hard reality and they can not be deleted from Zimbabwe’s geo-space. Law must deal with the same.

On Tuesday, the Cabinet resolved to withdraw the controversial clause from the Marriages Bill.

The clause would have, among a plethora of other things, licenced civil partnerships which are not classified as marriage under current laws.
