Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) Leader Edith Nawakwi says the constitution making process was selfish and failed due to the lack of political will from the country’s leadership.
In a live debate on Muvi TV, Nawakwi said a people driven constitution is urgent and vital as it will contribute to making Zambia better.
In addition, she said there is need to create household wealth for all Zambians through democratic decentralization.
Nawakwi stated that citizens must be motivated to seize opportunities of creating wealth within the borders and ensure the nation takes its place at international level.
Meanwhile, Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) President Charles Milupi has warned Zambians to be careful as they seek regime change in the forthcoming elections.
Milupi noted that in 1991 citizens sought change and the lessons from that move are plain to see.
He alleged that the rule of the Movement for Multi-party Democracy (MMD) has been the worst and voters must be given relief.
Milupi pledged that if ADD emerges victorious the party will ensure there is directional change that will bring about a shift from poverty and vices such as corruption as it is a cancer.
Speaking on the same program, Zambians for Empowerment and Development (ZED) Leader Fred Mutesa individuals in leadership must be held accountable to voters at all times and not take them for granted.
Mutesa said citizens need a new and clean Government that has not been compromised by evils such as corruption so that it does not bring shame to the land.
He said the country cannot continue to hide under the banner of state secrets so there is need for those in power to exercise transparency.
Commenting on the education, Mutesa noted that the many problems in the sector are due to lack of adequate budgetary resources.
He said there is need for more funds to be allocated to the education sector so that Government can provide better services for the employees, pupils, and students as education is the life blood of every nation.
