2.8.7. Masvingo The outreach consultation process started on the 24 th of June 2010 and ended on the 28 th of September 2010. The outreach was conducted in 234 Wards in the seven Districts of the Province. All in all, 622 meetings were conducted throughout the province. The process was conducted in a peaceful and participatory atmosphere in the whole of the Province. A total of 184 208 people took part in the consultation process with very high attendances in most meetings. The process was, however, marred by accommodation problems with team members moving in and out of Regency Group of hotels due to either non-payment or booking from other customers. Late delivery of fuel to teams also affected the times that meetings would actually commence. Hon. Senator Chief Fortune Charumbira and Hon. Senator Rorana Muchihwa supervised the process in the province. They were assisted by the Provincial Coordinator Mr F. A. Chikovo and seven district Coordinators based in the seven Districts of the Province. The outcomes of the meetings are clearly indicated in the National and Provincial Statistical reports as annexures to this report. 2.8.8. Matabeleland North A total of 614 meetings were held in the seven districts of the province. Although the outreach was conducted in a peaceful environment, attendance by participants was very low. The province recorded one of the lowest attendance figures together with Matabeleland South Province. The low attendance was attributed to apathy, lethargic attitude as well as inadequate civic education. A total of 53,077 people attended the meetings in the province. There were minimal accommodation and logistical challenges in Matabeleland North province and as a result the process went on very smoothly. The only major challenge was the late availability of fuel in some instances, resulting in some meetings being held late. 38 The Constitution Select Committee (COPAC) Report to Parliament, February 2013

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
