We will respect people’s wishes on constitution making process- Kabimba

Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba says any civil society group or political party having difficulties trusting the Patriotic Front on the new constitution should not do so through the media.

Mr. Kabimba who is also PF Secretary General says those having reservations on whether or not the ruling party will respect the wishes of the Zambian people on the constitution should instead write to the government as opposed to making public statements in the media.

His statement follows some concerns raised by some stakeholders that the ruling PF may not keep its word on subjecting the final draft constitution to a national referendum following the adoption of some contentious articles by the just ended National Constitution Convention.

Mr. Kabimba has also told Qfm News that the ruling PF will not run the affairs of government in the media by responding to every statement that civil society groups or political parties make in the media against the PF.

The four hundred delegates that deliberated at the just ended National Constitution Convention have also recommended that the final document of the draft constitution be subjected to a national referendum.
