A consortium of civil society organizations (CSOS) has shown intentions of forming a coalition with church mother bodies and opposition political parties in the country in pressing for the release of the final copy of the constitution.

CSOS spokesperson MacDonald Chipenzi has told Qfm news in an interview that CSOS have realized that they need to join forces with opposition political parties, the church and other key stakeholders in ensuring that the pf government gives the people what they want.

Mr. Chipenzi says some reports have shown that the pf government wants to manipulate the final document to be in conformity with their needs unlike the needs of many Zambians which should not be allowed.

He adds that there is need for the government to release the constitution without being pressured because it’s for the people and not a PF play book.

Mr. Chipenzi has also urged the media to be proactive in their reporting to bring out issues that may make the government release the constitution.
