Duration: 30 minutes
Zimbabweans are preparing to vote in a key referendum on a draft constitution which will pave the way for elections later this year. After thirty years of rule by eighty-nine year old Robert Mugabe the new constitution is meant to limit the powers of any future president. Civil rights activists say the changes are too limited in scope and that more democratic guarantees are needed. HARDtalk speaks to Zimbabwean Anglican Bishop Julius Makoni. Is the church speaking up loudly enough for the people or are clerics asleep at their pulpits?
