Opposition Movement for Multi Party Democracy president Nevers Mumba says he has reliable information that President Michael Sata intended to abandon the constitution making process completely.
Mumba said President Sata’s recent anti new constitution were being made to psyche Zambians about the ultimate treacherous act on the constitution that the Head of State was about to make.
Mumba said President Sata was giving politicians a bad name as they were now being dismissed as liars.
He wondered what the K40 million budgets for the constitutional making process was for in the 2014 national budget.
“We have received credible information that President Sata wants to completely abandon the constitution making process. He has been making cosmetic statements about the constitution,” Mumba said.
“President Sata has been lying and this constitution is what will bring him down. Ba Sata ubufi mukanwa bufuma kwati mate (Mr Sata’s lies come out like it is saliva).”
Mumba is in Katuba Constituency where he is drumming up support for MMD candidate Cecil Holmes.
The Katuba seat fell vacant following the death of area Member of Parliament Patrick Chikusu.
