PF Government to give Zambians a people-driven Constitution
JUSTICE Minister Wynter Kabimba has said the Patriotic Front (PF) will go down in Zambia’s history as a Government that managed to give Zambians a people-driven Constitution.
Mr Kabimba said this in Parliament in Lusaka on Wednesday when he contributed to President Michael Sata’s official opening speech to the National Assembly.
He said the consultation process on the Constitution making process had been concluded and time had come to give Zambians a people-centered Republican document.
He said the PF had no wish to circumvent the wishes and aspirations of Zambians during the Constitution making process.
“We have no wish whatsoever to circumvent the wishes and aspirations of Zambians in this process and we will go down in the country’s history as a Government that gave Zambians a people driven Constitution and one that will stand the test of time,” he said.
He said providing Zambians with a Constitution they desired was the priority of Government and assured that there was no room for disappointment.
He said the PF had continued to expand as evidenced by its performance in by-elections where it had managed to scoop seats in areas perceived as opposition strongholds.
Mr Kabimba who is PF Secretary General said the in-roads by the PF should act as a wake-up call to the opposition that there was no area that belonged to a single party.
He said Mr Sata was determined to continue uniting Zambians across political lines and push democracy forward adding that he had no intentions to turn the country into a one party State as alleged by critics.
He also assured that the Rule of Law and access to justice for all would remain paramount under the PF rule.
He said the fight against corruption would also continue as the vice strained national resources if left unchecked.
Tourism Minister Sylvia Masebo said the tourism sector had immense potential to help boost Zambia’s economic gains and growth.
Ms Masebo said it was important for all to back President Sata’s vision as outlined in his speech as he targeted to move the country to greater economic heights.
