The Non Governmental Organization Coordinating Council (NGOCC) has charged that it is shameful for ailing dictator Michael Sata to shelve the draft constitution after spending colossal sums of tax payers’ money on the constitution making process.
NGOCC Board Chairperson Beatrice Grillo has told Qfm News in an interview that it is disappointing for the president to dribble Zambians who had put so much trust in him to deliver a people driven constitution.
Mrs. Grillo said the civil society will not relent in pushing for the release of the draft constitution because it belongs to the Zambian people.
She said that President Sata’s statement discouraging constitutional office holders from talking about the constitution and ignore those who are talking about the constitution is unfair and unacceptable to the majority Zambians.
She said that there is need for the president to have a listening ear to the many complaints and cries from the people who voted the PF into power.
Mr. Grillo added that it is worrying because even donors who had put in so much money for the country to begin the constitution making process will now question the logic of doing so.
