    There's already a topic on this where everyone got worked up before learning what she was actually talking about.

    Not misleading at all. She said we have an old constitution which she wouldn't look to if drafting a constitution today. Infer what you may but she followed that by pointing to South Africa's constitution as a better model for 2012.

    Our own Constitution had to be much amended to include human rights, I am sure more modern constitutions have them written right in there, also I think she was mostly talking about the process of drafting a constitution.
