Recently another civic society organization Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition issued a statement saying, “Attempting to amend the constitution which is a product of the tireless efforts by citizens to develop and entrench democratic efforts in Zimbabwe after two decades of crisis will amongst others erode and wipe all the democratic gains made on the 16th of March 2013 historic referendum.
“What makes this act abominable is its ascertained result which is to entrench hegemony and consolidate the power of the incumbent. Regardless of the outcome, the initial attempts by the ruling party to amend the Constitution reflect on the desires of the incumbent to consolidate power such that several other attempts to mutilate the Constitution will be expected.”
