Constitutional law expert, Dr Alex Magaisa has urged businesses to know the new constitution well, particularly provisions which affect the Bill of Rights, in order to safeguard their businesses. Speaking at Alpha Media Holdings (AMH) Conversations hosted in partnership with Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights, Magaisa said:
Companies must train their staff on observing the rights and obligations given in the Constitution,
It is important that companies invest in assisting their workers to understand their rights, especially those at the high end, those who make decisions, not only in order to comply with the Constitution, but also to exploit opportunities that are given in the Constitution.
One of the most important rights for business is the right to private property. As lawyers and business, we must be familiar with what we are able to do and what we are unable to do as given by this Constitution
