Zimbabwe: Constitutional data easy to manipulate

According to SW Radio Africa news and the Independent newspaper on 3 December 2010, the coordinator of the Constitution Select Committee, Peter Kunjeku, complained that “all the important information that was collected during the constitutional outreach meetings is being kept at the Copac offices in Harare, but is not secured and can easily be accessed and manipulated.”  The records, he said, include signed hard copies of records from outreach meetings, audio and visual records, digital cameras, compact video cameras and laptops that were used by Copac officials around the country.

Kunjeku suggested in a 20 October memorandum that the records be “temporarily stored” at the National Archives of Zimbabwe and some were briefly delivered but the proposal “was turned down” and the records taken back from the Archives.  On 17 December the Financial Gazette reported that Kunjeku’s contract with the Committee has not been renewed.
