8. Funding of the Process The Constitution making process was funded by the donors through a basket fund managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Zimbabwe Institute (ZI) and the Government of Zimbabwe. During the planning phase, the process was meant to be funded by a total budget of USD$21 million, with donor earmarked to contribute $14 million and the Government of Zimbabwe $7 million. It turned out that this was a gross underestimation of the resources required for the process. 50 The Constitution Select Committee (COPAC) Report to Parliament, February 2013

a) Whilst the initial budget had considered only seventy (70) Rapporteurs, these were then revised to two hundred and ten (210). b) A team of seventy (70) Technicians had initially not been considered in the budget. c) The numbers of meetings were initially inadequate to cover the areas required. d) The fuel required had to be adjusted to take into account the increased number of meetings to be held. e) The outreach exercise was extended by more than a third of the original plan. f) The long drawn discussions on the Draft Constitution. In view of the above, as the process comes to an end, a total of $50,725,715 would have been consumed in the process, with the Government of Zimbabwe contributing $28,611,804 and the donors weighing in with $22,140,911. The contribution by the Government of Zimbabwe is significant given the financial situation the country finds itself in. The donor community must be commended for keeping faith in the process and channelling more resources to ensure the successfully completion of the process.

    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.
