Zambian being treated to comedy of soaks on release of constitution- Nawakwi

Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi has charged that Zambians are being treated to a comedy of soaks with regards the release of the draft constitution.

Ms. Nawakwi has told Qfm News in an interview that the PF government on its own started the constitution making process and not Zambians hence the need for them to deliver the constitution as promised.

Ms. Nawakwi has noted with concern the different statements that have so far been given by government officials regarding the release of the draft constitution.

She says there is no need for the government to continue treating the Zambian people as small children on the constitution.

Ms. Nawakwi has since challenged President Michael Sata to explain the delay in giving the draft constitution to the Zambian people.

And the Movement for Multi Party Democracy (MMD) on the Copperbelt says the observation by Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC) President Bishop Ignatius Chama on the governance record of the Patriotic Front (PF) government should save as a timely warning to President Michael Sata government.

MMD Copperbelt Information and Publicity Secretary Yotam Mtayachalo has told Qfm that President Sata should address the issues raised by the Catholic Bishop before it is too late.

Mr. Mtayachalo notes that the Catholic Bishops have vindicated the opposition which has been saying that the PF government is taking the country in reverse gear.

He adds that it is indisputable that the PF government has failed to provide leadership on a number of issues affecting the nation, adding that any responsible government anywhere in the world is supposed to consult with stakeholders to iron out issues through interparty dialogue which the PF have failed to do.

Mr. Mtayachalo further states that it is too early for the PF to become arrogant in just two years of being in power, warning that such arrogance will cost them in 2016.
