Zuma monitoring Zim

SADC-APPOINTED facilitator to the Zimbabwe political dialogue, South African President Jacob Zuma is keeping a close eye on all processes leading up to the Second All-Stakeholders’ Conference on the new draft constitution and would only be visiting Harare afterwards.
The holding of the crucial conference is currently mired in confusion following squabbles between Zanu PF and the MDC formations over the contents of the draft and how many civil society organisations should be represented.

 

To add to the confusion, the Global Political Agreement is silent on what happens if there is a deadlock at the conference, only stating the draft charter and the national report should be submitted to parliament within a month of holding the conference.

 
Lindiwe Zulu, spokesperson of the Sadc facilitation team and international advisor to Zuma, said: “We are monitoring what is going on in Harare right now like preparations for the constitution’s Second All-Stakeholders’ Conference … We will see how it goes, then we will take it from there.” — Staff Writer.
