This could have been worsened by the inconsistent and selective application and enforcement of the the Lancaster House Constitution of Zimbabwe 1979 (SI 1979/1600) as amended by Act 1 of 2009 which introduced amendment 19 of 2009 (Lancaster House Constitution) as well as the Zimbabwe Constitution Amendment Act 20 of 2013 (Zimbabwe Constitution 2013).
