COPAC has openly confessed that it has run out of funds, a situation that is threatening to derail the next stage of the constitution making process.

Speaking during a media briefing, COPAC Co-chairperson, Mr Douglas Mwonzora said COPAC’s coffers are empty.

Having completed the second phase of the constitution making process, which was the data uploading process, the COPAC team is expected to move on to the next stage of thematic committees.

The constitution making process failed to take off on time due to delays in releasing funds by the donor community and government.

However the Head of State and Government and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, President Robert Mugabe said that with or without a new constitution, the country will go for elections this year.
