POSA, Citizen Act, Police Act To Be Aligned To The Constitution

Minister of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Ziyambi Ziyambi has said that Government is set to align five acts that fall under the Home Affairs Ministry to the Constitution of Zimbabwe. Home Affairs have to align the Citizenship Act (chapter 4:91), Immigration Act (Chapter 4:02), Official Secrets Act (Chapter11:09), Police Act (Chapter 11:10) and Public Order and Security Act ( Chapter11:17).

Ziyambi said the alignment of these pieces of legislation is in line with his ministry’s 100 day plan. He said the alignment will be done through the Attorney General’s office which is making a follow up with the Ministry of Home Affairs. Said Ziyambi:

We identified laws which need alignment and the Attorney General is following up with Home Affairs Ministry. We hope the Registrar’s General’s Office , the department of Immigration and the police will co-operate. We have some Ministries in particular Home Affairs that have not aligned a single legislation and within the next 100 days we are working with them to ensure that the majority of these laws are aligned.

However some Government officials such as Registrar General Mr Tobaiwa Mudede have resisted the alignment os the Citizenship Act with the Constitution and urged Government to amend the Constitution to abolish provisions allowing dual citizenship.
