SACCORD asks govt to clarify over the draft constitution

Zambia draft Constitution
Southern African Centre for Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) has challenged government to state if the draft constitution will be handed over simultaneously to the president and members of the public.

SACCORD executive director Boniface Cheembe has told Qfm news in an interview that in an much as the ministerial statement from justice minister Wynter Kabimba has given hope to Zambians on government’s position regarding the constitution, Zambians need to know if the document will be handed over simultaneously as promised by president Michael Sata.

Mr. Cheembe notes that it is not too late for the country to have a people driven constitution only if there is honesty and commitment by all stakeholders involved.

Mr. Cheembe explains that it is in this regard that government through the ministry of justice shares the roadmap on how the draft constitution will be handled and when the final handover will be done.

He adds that by doing so, government will help the majority Zambians to have a clear idea on what is expected as with regards to the release of the constitution.
