A Lusaka based nongovernmental organisation has raised the validity of ruling PF Secretary’s General Wynter Kabimba’s country wide tours when there are urgent national issues such as the New Republican Constitution to be worked on.
Youths for Transparency and Integrity (YTI) executive director Bright Muchima says Mr. Kabimba, who is also Justice Minister, should stop his countrywide campaigns and concentrate on the release of the second and final draft constitution.
Mr Muchima said the monies being used by Mr. Kabimba and his entourage could be used on the constitution issue.
He added that the Patriotic Front (PF) secretary general should as well honour the promise he made during the constitution summit organized by SACORD to release of the draft constitution before cabinet.
Mr Muchima said Mr Kabimba should also be busy attending to issues surrounding the undemocratic peace of legislature called the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Act.
He said it is illogic for the Patriotic Front secretary general to be traveling instead of holding dialogue with stakeholders over the NGO Act.
Mr Muchima said Mr Kabimba should be organizing meetings pertaining to where the national referendum will be discussed.
He said that it is sad to note that Mr Kabimba is preoccupied with campaigns for his party ignoring issues that matter to the Zambian people.
Efforts to get Mr. Kabimba to comment on the matter were un successful by broadcast time.
However, the ruling Party Secretary General has stated that the decisions he makes are on behalf of the Republican President Micheal Sata who is the supreme leader of the ruling party and Head of State.
Mr. Kabimba is reported in the local media today to have said that he works for President Sata and acts on his behalf both in government and party affairs.
