The opposition Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) has promised a massive Red Card Campaign against the Patriotic Front (PF) government over its alleged failure to keep its promise over the releasing of the final draft constitution simultaneously to the public and the Head of State.

ABZ president Frank Bwalya says his party is confident that the Red Card Campaign, which was officially launched on Saturday yesterday against the PF government, will be bigger than the one that was mounted against the Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) government in 2010 over similar failures to keep promises to given to the people in the country.

Fr. Bwalya has told Qfm in an interview that his conviction of a massive Red Card Campaign against the PF government is based on the fact that already the campaign has gained momentum on its day of being launched with other opposition political parties already willing to take part in the campaign.

Fr. Bwalya has stated that Saturday’s ‘Rescuing Our Constitution Prayer Meeting’ jointly held by the opposition, the church and the civil society is only the beginning of many avenues to pressure the PF government to release the final draft constitution.

The ABZ president says as Red Card Campaigners his group will exhaust all avenues of mounting pressure on the PF government until the final draft constitution is released to the nation as per promise.

He has however noted that the campaign will be only restricted within the country as there is strong conviction that the people of Zambia will not let the PF government get away without fulfilling the promise it made to them to release the final draft constitution simultaneously to the Head of State and the public.
