Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) international relations chairman Mulondwe Muzungu has predicated that President Michael Sata risks going into the country’s annals as a President who turned a deaf ear to the cries of the Zambian people.
Mr. Muzungu says President Sata also risks being remembered in the country’s history as a Head of State who failed to preserve national peace and unity as his predecessors had statesmanly done.
Mr. Muzungu who is also former Cabinet Minister in the United National Independence Party (UNIP) government has told Qfm news that such impending outcome the President Sata risks are in view of the stance he has made on the constitution, Chitimukulu succession, the Barotseland Agreement, and the dismissal of nurses.
The UPND International relations chairman has also pointed out that the issue of the new republican constitution has the potential to ignite turmoil in the nation if not handled prudently.
He says it is for this reason that President Sata should take a leaf from what has happened elsewhere in the world where internal strives have caused devastating consequences because of the governments’ failure to handle national issues prudently.
Mr. Muzungu says President Sata to this end must avail himself of the opportunity and let the people in the country have their constitution.
