SW Radio Africa News Stories for Monday 21st January 2013
Dr. Stan Mukasa argues that last weeks agreement by the four Zim principals, on the final constitutional draft, represents only baby steps. There are so many other major provisions in the GPA that have not been implemented.
McDonald Lewanika, Director of the Crisis Coalition, and NCA spokesman Madock Chivasa, discuss last week’s announcement by the principals that they had reached agreement on a draft of the new constitution. Chivasa says the NCA is against the whole constitutional process as it is not people driven and has wasted a lot of time and money. Lewanika says other reforms stipulated in the GPA, that are necessary to ensure a credible poll, have been sidelined and need to be implemented.
Mpala says their crops have been attacked by army worm following constant heavy rains. He fears they won’t reap anything this year and the government has no clue how to help farmers; while Panodya says there is too much rain in Binga which has caused serious floods and many villagers have been left homeless and need to be evacuated urgently; and Muranda says despite ZANU PF giving its supporters seed and fertiliser they won’t reap anything since heavy rain is damaging their crops.
