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.
