International Focus Background The first independent constitution of Zimbabwe, that came into force in , sets out a legal basis for FOI when it provides for the" freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference" s. As with much Zimbabwean law, this provision appears formally stronger than it is in reality, but the basis for a right of access does appear in the rights provisions of the Constitution. Legislation While freedom of information is not a reality in Zimbabwe, formally there is a well developed legislative scheme laid out in the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act AIPPA  that is broadly comparable to the schemes of many western democracies. For the purposes of the scheme, "all records in the custody or under the control of a public body" s. Any person can make a request provided that they are citizens, permanent residents, holders of temporary employment permits, students or registered media agents.
The purpose of this article is to critically review the provision of section 48 2 d of the Zimbabwean Constitution from a gendered perspective.

In the absence of such a law, the military action is unconstitutional. The military have occupied public spaces and state property, detained the President and other high-ranking government officials and taken control of the public broadcaster.
The military action has violated at least the rights to personal liberty s 49 , the rights of arrested and detained persons s 50 , personal security s 52 , assembly s 58 , movement s 66 , protest s 59 and expression, especially media freedom s The action has curtailed political rights s 67 , by impeding parliament and threatening future elections.
It also threatens to worsen socio-economic conditions in the country and therefore to violate the rights to education, healthcare, food and water ss — although the armed forces claim their objective is the opposite.
These constitutional violations should not be dismissed as a necessary evil to remove a corrupt regime, as they profoundly contravene the rule of law — a founding value of the Constitution under s 3 1 b. Some of these infringements could be legalised by an emergency law under s 87 — for a limited time and only as far as strictly necessary.
Currently, however, they are serious violations of the Constitution for which the military do not consider themselves accountable.
Even more fundamentally, these actions are a rupture in the rule of law. Provinces Districts Wards.
