More Zambians mount pressure over constitution

More Zambians have joined the calls to compel ailing dictator Michael Sata’s PF government to release the first draft copy of the constitution which has illegally been hijacked.

The Oasis forum, a consortium of civil societies and churches which stopped late President Fredrick Chiluba and Michael Sata going for the third term in 2011 has said they have unspecified strategies that will rescue the constitution.

They have warned and demanded that the constitution must be released through a referendum as a gift for Zambia’s golden jubilee, and that the government will encounter great vigour if they continue with the current arrogance.

At a press conference held at the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) head office in Lusaka the committee has resolved that the PF has committed a constitutional breach by not releasing the constitution simultaneously in line with the terms of reference.

Prominent figures present were LAZ president James Banda, NGOCC Executive Director Beatrice Grillo, Zambia Episcopal Conference President Father Cleopus Lungu, CCZ General secretary Suzanne Matale, EFZ president reverend Pukuta Mwanza, CCZ President, Bishop Kalembo.

The pressure is to be spread to other parts of the country within a short time frame.
