CDEDI engaged government to review the Pension Act of 2011 to allow those people that lost their jobs due to the restrictive preventive measures against Covid-19 to access their funds. The bill was prepared and appeared on the order paper, but it was not tabled in.

CDEDI ignited debate on the need for the country to publicly discuss the qualifications for one to become a Member of Parliament and the official language to be used in the national assembly. The matter was picked up by the Lost History Foundation who later petitioned parliament.
