Mr. Mwaanga says this is why both the Patriotic Front (PF) government and that of the previous Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) have spent huge sums of taxpayers’ money on the constitutional making process.
Mr. Mwaanga says it is for this reason why he finds as unfortunate President Michael Sata’s recent statement that people talking about the new constitution should be ignored despite the ruling PF having had promised in its manifesto that it will give the nation a new constitution.
The Veteran politician has maintained that if the PF government does not give the people a new constitution as per promise it will be a betrayal of what it promised the people.
Asked what should be the way forward regarding the current position on the country’s constitution making process, Mr. Mwaanga has told Qfm news in an interview that the government should engage the opposition, the Church and the Civil Society and explain why it is trivializing the issue of the new constitution after spending huge sums of taxpayers’ money on the constitutional making process.
He says this is also in view of the fact that the constitutional making process started many years ago the more reason the opposition, the Church and the Civil Society should continue pressing government to give the nation a new constitution as this what the people in the country are demanding.
