The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) has appealed to President Michael Sata to provide leadership on the stalled constitution making process as opposed to making mocking statements on the issue.
YALI Governance Advisor Isaac Mwanza says President Sata’s recent statement questioning whether the current constitution is an animal driven constitution for people to continue demanding for a people driven constitution is disappointing.
Mr Mwanza says the President’s statements on the constitution are not inspiring especially that people expect him to give direction on the constitution making process.
Mr. Mwanza has told Qfm News in an interview that President Sata should give the Zambian people a constitution they have asked for.
He adds that President Sata is fully aware that the country needs a new constitution which he promised the Zambian people while in opposition.
And Open Society Foundation Executive Director Sunday Chanda says Zambians do not need to show President Michael Sata an animal-driven constitution because they are not an animal farm.
Mr Chanda has called on President Sata to show leadership and give the people the long awaited constitution.
