Making new constitution to take more than announced 90 days

Justice Minister Sebastian Zulu has outlined a new constitutional road map in which the process will take longer than the 90 days earlier announced.

Mr. Zulu told Parliament that President Michael Sata is in the process of appointing a team of experts to revisit the Mvunga, Mwanakatwe, Mun’gomba Constitution review commissions recommendations.

He says the experts will also look at the recent constitution review commission draft constitution.

Mr. Zulu explained that the experts will then come up with a draft constitution which will be taken around the country for peoples’ inputs before going for a referendum.

After the referendum the draft constitution will then be brought before parliament for possible enactment.

Meanwhile Mr. Zulu says his Ministry is drafting various pieces of legislation to support the pronouncements made by President Sata in his recent speech to Parliament.
