Sauti za Wananchi Special Event | What do citizens really think about the second draft constitution?

Sauti za Wananchi, managed by Twaweza, is Africa’s first nationally representative mobile phone survey. It provides scientifically reliable data on citizen opinions and monitoring data on what is going on in our society.

Citizens regularly debate issues and policy makers make decisions for the whole country, but with poor access to the experiences and realities of a large majority of citizens. It is also difficult to get reliable information on whether policies are working on the ground, and to be able to compare the situation across different places. Sauti provides an efficient mechanism to obtain timely and reliable data at low cost. In 2014 we expect to conduct 20 survey rounds, in collaboration with partners. More information

In order to inform public and policy thinking, Twaweza has launched a new monthly series to share and debate findings from Sauti za Wananchi. Each month, fresh evidence on a specific issue will be presented and debated.

This month Twaweza is releasing data about citizens' views on the second draft constitution. In order to release these findings before the adjournment of the Constituent Assembly, the special session will be held on Wednesday 23 April at the National Museum from 745am - 10am. Speakers include Judge Warioba and CCM SG Kinana representative Hamis Kigwangalla, MP.

Findings to be presented include:

  • Citizen preference for transformed state citizen relationship
  • Mainland and Zanzibari views on the proposed three government structure
  • Opinions on key clauses about public accountability
  • Whether the current draft would pass in a referendum
