The opposition MMD has lamented the Patriotic Front Government’s apparent u-turn on the new constitution following President Michael Sata’s statement that the current constitution only needs amendments.

MMD National secretary, Kapembwa Simbao says it will be very unfortunate if President Michael Sata meant what he said by implying that there is no need for an entirely new constitution.

He notes that the need for a new constitution is a general requirement and that it is unfair for the Patriotic Front to u-turn on an agenda they pushed from the time they were in the opposition.

He adds that the government should stop riding on people’s mind but give the Zambian people a constitution that will stand a taste of time.

Mr. Simbao has since appealed to government to release the final draft constitution to the public than playing games which are not necessary.
