The draft constitution has passed the final stage after senators adopted it in Harare this Thursday, paving the way for the principals to set a date for the holding of a referendum.

Announcing the adoption of the draft constitution, Senate President Edna Madzongwe commended the spirit of maturity demonstrated by senators who unanimously adopted the draft.

Most senators, who spoke during the adoption process, appealed to  Zimbabweans regardless of their political affiliation to put Zimbabwe first and unite against any forces bent on derailing this historic phase in the country's history of coming up with a home grown constitution which will be the supreme law of the land.

Traditional leaders have come in open support of the draft and called on all progressive Zimbabweans to vote yes during the referendum.

The draft constitution is now in the principals' court for them to move forward so that it is taken to the people for scrutiny before they vote.

Meanwhile, parliamentarians have called on Copac to move with speed in distributing the final draft constitution to ensure that it reaches all the people from the grassroots level ahead of the referendum.

Legislators from across the political divide described the adoption of the draft constitution by both parliament and the senate as a milestone achievement in the country's quest to come up with its own constitution.

Simbaneuta Mudarikwa noted that while the document has passed the acid test, what is now needed is for Copac to expeditiously start distributing the draft to all the people so that they familiarise themselves with the document.




Other legislators including Brain Tshuma and Beatrice Nyamupinga called on Copac to ensure that the draft is distributed in all languages.

The draft constitution, which passed its final stage after senate endorsed the process, will now be handed over to the principals to set a date for the referendum.
