Non-implementation of the constitution shows Govt’s lack of respect for citizens
By Thomas Madhuku
Rewind to August 2013, Zanu PF has just won the harmonised elections with a resounding victory. A ceremony is held where President Mugabe and Joice Mujuru take oath of office. According to section 129(c) of the constitution, by virtue of her assuming the vice President’s position, Mujuru’s Mt Darwin West parliamentary seat should be declared vacant.
A year down the line, Mujuru and her ‘Gamatox’ faction fall out of favour with the President and the country is suddenly alerted that her Mt Darwin West parliamentary should have been vacant soon after her assumption of the position of vice president of the republic of Zimbabwe in 2013.
