Members to the Political Actors Dialogue (POLAD) forum have echoed the opposition MDC led by Nelson Chamisa’s calls for President Emmerson Mnangagwa to stop the Constitutional Amendment process.
MDC was always opposed to the process which it says was reversing the gains towards the attainment and or enhancement of democracy in the country.
POLAD members have since last year been working with President Mnangagwa and have also given input to the proposed Constitutional Amendment Bill.

Constitutional law expert, Professor Lovemore Madhuku who is also a member of the POLAD forum last week said that the forum had informed president Mnangagwa that they were not happy with the Bill. He said:
We believe they should withdraw this Bill to allow more discussion, allow more input from Polad and others.
He added that Mnangagwa who hosted POLAD members at the State House liked the debate on the Constitution and said that the government was ready to compromise.
Meanwhile, the MDC has since started mobilising masses against the Bill saying that it was meant to “vandalise the Constitution.”
