Within 24 hours of our publishing the draft constitution here, President Michael Sata’s mouthpiece George Chellah issued a statement claiming the document was fake; Sata himself later said he was not aware of any draft constitution and security forces went on high alert.
Chellah and the OP then used Sata’s photos to create a Facebook account for Sata hoping that citizens will now start giving him information.
But now Ceremonial vice-president Guy Scott says Government will probe the Technical Committee Drafting the Zambia Constitution to find out who leaked the draft copy to the Zambian Watchdog.
Speaking on a live programme on Radio Breeze FM in Chipata on Friday evening, Scott said that it was against the terms of reference that were given to the Technical Committee Drafting the Zambia Constitution to leak the document to Watchdog before handing over the document to Sata.
Scott said that he suspected that the document was leaked by some people within the Technical Committee.
“The leaking of the document to Online media was totally wrong and we aware that no outsider had a privilege of having looked at the document but it is within the panel of the Technical Committee who leaked that information to media,” he said.
And like a mad man, Scott said PF made a promise to the people of Zambia to set up a Technical Committee to look at the constitution within 90 days of being in power, which it did. He said the PF promised to set up a committee in 90 day and not to give Zambians a constitution within 90 days.
He said the Government was waiting for the Technical Committee Drafting the Zambia Constitution to hand over the document for further action.
And on Sata’s facebook account operated by George Chellah, it has been revealed that it is meant to assure him that he is still popular.
Last evening, Chellah went to Sata’s office and started showing him how many people had so far ‘liked’ him on facebook.
On the other hand, Chellah and the OP are spending $1000 dollars per hour to advertise the same fake account.
One of the boys being used to create fake accounts and ‘like’ Sata told the Watchdog that ‘we have been given a target of creating 40 accounts each and them like bakateka on facebook.’
