    This was BEFORE and AFTER 29 March 2011. On 22 March 2011, Simon Kabanda and Fr. Frank Bwalya led a group of people who petititoned Parliament to include 50%+1, Running Mate for vice -president and Swearing-in of President-elect after 90 days, in the new constitution before the 2011 elections. On 29 March 2011, the Constitution of Zambia (Amendment) Bill, 2010 failed to go through Second Reading in Parliament because the draft Constitution of the National Constitution Conference (NCC) did not contain the critical provisions that the people of Zambia wanted to be in the new Constitution before the 2011 elections.

    We stopped cutting hair/shaving after the NCC produced its draft constitution in August 2010, as a protest against the NCC product, a protest against the constitution making process, a protest against the manipulation of the constitution making process.

    Three weeks before picketing Parliament on 22 March 2011, I stopped bathing. Biblically, when devout people wanted to achieve something bigger or higher on behalf of the people, some of them stopped bathing, otherS started to wear sackclothing, while others went and sat for days on garbage dumps, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc,.

    And did we achieve anything big on behalf of the people of Zambia? YES, we did. Thanks to the gallant Members of Parliament, we prevented government from giving the people of Zambia a bad constitution on 29 March 2011.
