Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) has charged that democratic accountability has been a flop under the leadership of Patriotic Front.

FODEP Executive Director Macdonald Chipenzi has told Qfm News in an interview that the Patriotic Front government has failed to uphold the tenets of democracy since they came into power.

Mr. Chipenzi points out that despite call by stakeholders for government to govern the country based on democratic values, the advice has been falling on deaf ears.

He states that the Patriotic Front has made so many mistakes which have hurt the Zambian people, and that it is up to the PF government to make up for those mistakes to the Zambian people.

He further notes that 2013 has been a difficult year, but that God has seen the country through.

Mr. Chipenzi has since appealed to government to move a step further and ensure that democracy is upheld at all times.
