Working under the aegis of a multisectoral forum — trade unions, civil society, religious leaders and business community — agreed that the country needs political and legal reforms to ensure that it remains stable and future elections take place in an improved political environment.
Borrowing from the Ufangamano Initiative, the multisectoral forum is looking at short and long term interventions to the current crisis.
To kick-off the call for reforms, the forum had proposed a national dialogue conference, where political and legal challenges the country faces after every general election will be discussed, which could pave the way for a constitutional review process if the proposal is adopted.
