Government and the Grand Coalition on the Demand for a People Driven constitution have been challenged to avail the nation the details of their discussion during a recent meeting on the current constitution making process.

Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Governance Advisor Isaac Mwanza says it is important that the nation is availed the details of the discussion and not only being told that the meeting was fruitful.

Mr Mwanza says this is especially that government has been challenged already to avail the roadmap for the enactment of the country’s new constitution.

He has told Qfm news in an interview that in view of the fact that government may have its own timeframe for enacting the country’s new supreme law and Grand Coalition have proposed their own roadmap, it is important that government also calls for national indaba with all stakeholders in order to reach consensus on the roadmap.

Mr. Mwanza says the national indaba’s agenda should also include his organization’s 10 points constitution master plan so that a conclusion can be reached on how the country’s new supreme law will finally be enacted.

He says this is the only way government can act upon its responsibility of consolidating the country’s constitution reforms.

Mr Mwanza says YALI still believes that consensus on coming up with a roadmap for the current constitution making process will only be reached through a give and take approach.
