NCA Referendum Date Challenge Thrown Out

Justice George Chiweshe has thrown out an appeal by the National Constitutional Assembly to have the date for the constitutional referendum moved.

Lovemore Madhuku’s organisation was seeking an extension on the 16 March date that was gazetted by government earlier this month.

Now the Judge President says he has no jurisdiction to rule on the matter.

It remains to be seen what the NCA will do now given the fact that we are close to the referendum date.
