Mujuru’s proposed people first crafting democratic constitution


ZIMBABWE – Former Vice President Joice Mujuru’s proposed party, People First, says it is finalizing its constitution before launching the party.

De-facto people first spokesperson, Rugare Gumbo, told VOA Studio 7 they are getting a lot of support from Zimbabweans.

“Basically we have been looking at the mobilization of our people creating structures to ensure that people know who to report to, we have done provincial structures, we have done constituency structures … That is the level where we are.

“We have also been looking into the constitution of the party. We want to come up with a brilliant constitution that everyone will try to associate with. We are concerned by the fact that if we don’t produce a good constitution people will, perhaps, feel let down.”

Gumbo said his party is encouraging the democratic participation of Zimbabweans in the proposed People First party.

Gumbo, Mrs. Mujuru and several other top Zanu PF officials were expelled from President Robert Mugabe’s ruling party following allegations that they wanted to unseat the 91 year-old Zimbabwean leader.

They have dismissed these allegations as wishful thinking, claiming that this is all about the succession of President Mugabe, who has been the sole leader of Zimbabwe since the country attained independence from British rule in 1980.
