GIVE ME MY CONSTITUTION-GIVE ME MY VOICE


A people propelled policy platform
A people powered constitution
A people guaranteed respect and honor
A people perfect peace

Give me what I said
The way I said it
Give me my voice
The way I said it
You have given me Zimbabwe

The draft is on the table
There is gnashing of teeth
Ayaqhaqhazela amagwala
The guilty are afraid
Of the peoples’ voice

My voice in the constitution
My only weapon for a better Zimbabwe
My voices as it is
My only hope for a Hopeful Zimbabwe
My voice, my constitution

Politics aside
Women need respect
Women need equal opportunities
Women need protection
Wathint’umfazi-wathint’imbokodo

Crying aside
Children need protection
Children need a guaranteed education
Children need to learn their mother languages
Children need free and quality education
A nation that disregards its youth
Risks collapse


Toy toying aside
Youths need jobs
Youths need equal opportunities
Youths need a share of the national stake
Youths are the backbone of the nation
Their fear is that they are powerful beyond measure

War mantras aside
War vets are veterans
They deserve rest and relaxation
Heroes are our making
Heroes deserve respect
Party declarations on this is unacceptable

Give me a constitution that respects human rights
Give me a law book that respects minorities
Give me a supreme textbook
that guarantees me freedom of expression
And after expression
Give me my voice
I will identify with it

A people propelled policy platform
A people powered constitution
A people guaranteed respect and honor
A people perfect peace
