The southern African Center for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) says opposition political party leaders are within their democratic rights to seek an audience with President Michael Sata over impasse on the constitution.

SACCORD also holds the position that dialogue between government and the opposition must be encouraged by all stakeholders who are interested in ensuring there is improvement in the general governance welfare of the country.

In an interview with QFM news, SACCORD Executive Director Boniface Cheembe states that his organization believes that government should also be receptive by way of acknowledging and communicating to stakeholders.

Mr. Cheembe says government misses an opportunity to resolve issues facing the country by choosing to ignore stakeholders seeking an audience with it.

Mr. Cheembe has since called for level headedness on the part of the sixteen opposition political party leaders and President Michael Sata as they seek to dialogue on the constitution.



  1. Opposition leaders should not always think they are in better place than the other let them give advice ad not criticizing every time
