Zimbabwe Constitution Should Be Part of Schools’ Curricula – Parliament Member

Zimbabwe’s Parliament Speaker, Jacob Mudenda says there is need for the government to make the Zimbabwean constitution a part of schools’ curricula and to the training of security forces, civil service and employees of public institutions.

During a presentation at the National Defense University on Parliament’s oversight role and contribution to national security, Mudenda said the state must encourage relevant organizations to know the law.

He said the state must promote public awareness of this constitution, in particular by translating it into all officially recognized languages and disseminating it as widely as possible.

He said the constitution must be taught in schools and as part of the curricula for the training of members of the security services, the civil service and members and employees of public institutions.

Addressing high-ranking army officials from the region, Mudenda added that it is instructive to note that education of the citizenry on constitutionalism and parliamentary democratic governance is a sacrosanct.

He further said to give effect to these fundamental constitutional values, Parliament is working closely with the Justice Ministry as well as State Universities and has caused the translation of the Constitution into all the fourteen officially recognized vernacular languages and Braille.

Mudenda highlighted this as the reason why the university has to include the teaching and learning of the constitution and other constitutions as part of its curricula.
