Council of Churches refuse to participate in changing constitution

The Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) has rejected the request by the PF government to make Submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee that is seeking to alter the constitution.

CCZ Secretary General Fr Emmanuel Chikoya has told the clerk of the National Assembly they making such submissions will amount to supporting the current process to change the constitution.

Fr. Chikoya reminded the clerk of the National Assembly that the church does not support the current attempts to alter the constitution because the proposed changes are against the interests of the majority of Zambians.

Apart from the opposition political parties, legitimate NGOs including the NGOCC have also refused to make submissions to the parliamentary select committee.
