Unicef has pledged to support special Constitutional Parliamentary Committee outreach programmes for youths and children to be held later this month

Copac co-chairperson Mr Douglas Mwonzora last week confirmed Unicef would fund the two-day special outreach programmes nationwide. They are likely to be held on September 23 and 24.

He could not disclose how much money was involved. "We secured commitment from Unicef to fund the special outreach meetings for youths and children. We are still discussing the modalities of the meetings," he said.

Mr Mwonzora said Copac did not want the meetings to be held long after the main outreach had been completed so that youths’ views could be properly captured. There have been concerns over the low turnout of youths, children and other disadvantaged groups in the ongoing outreach. Youths account for just 12 percent of the more than 500 000 people who have attended outreach meetings to date.
