Chief Government Spokesperson and Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services Mwansa Kapeya has refuted media allegation that President Michael Sata has U-turned on the delivery of the new constitution. His Statement follows allegations quoting the president saying that the current constitution only needs amendments and that Zambia did not need a new constitution.

Mr Kapeya said that the president’s statement in Mansa was supposed to be understood within the context that the road map for the constitutional making process will only be determined after the Technical Committee on drafting the Zambian Constitution hands over the final draft constitution and the constitutional Bill.

Below is the full statement

Republic of Zambia
Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Services

STATEMENT BY HON. MWANSA KAPEYA, MP, MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING SERVICES AND CHIEF GOVERNMENT SPOKESPERSON ON THE CONSTITUTION MAKING PROCESS

Government takes this opportunity to reaffirm its position on the constitution making process following His Excellency President Michael Sata’s statement in Mansa at the weekend regarding the constitution making process.

The road map for the constitutional making process will only be determined after the Technical Committee on drafting the Zambian Constitution hands over the final draft constitution and the constitutional Bill.

Therefore, the statement by His Excellency the President in Mansa should be understood within this context.

President Michael Sata’s commitment to deliver a people driven constitution remains unshakeable and that position has not changed and it will not change.

The Government has requested the Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian constitution to ensure they hand over the draft Constitution and Constitution Bill on or before the 31st December, 2013.

There is, therefore, no need for some sections of society to interpret the President’s statement in Mansa as a change of position and lack of commitment to the constitution making process.

President Sata and the Patriotic Front Government still remain committed to ensuring that a people driven constitution is delivered to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.

2nd December, 2013

Meanwhile, the opposition MMD has lamented the Patriotic Front Government’s apparent u-turn on the new constitution following President Michael Sata’s statement that the current constitution only needs amendments.

Mr Simbao says it will be very unfortunate if President Michael Sata meant what he said by implying that there is no need for an entirely new constitution.

He notes that the need for a new constitution is a general requirement and that it is unfair for the Patriotic Front to u-turn on an agenda they pushed from the time they were in the opposition.

He adds that the government should stop riding on people’s mind but give the Zambian people a constitution that will stand a taste of time.

Mr. Simbao has since appealed to government to release the final draft constitution to the public than playing games which are not necessary.

      @1.1 — I’m not sure if your comments are sarcastic or if you actually believe what you write.
      If you are sarcastic, then you are very good, and very funny! LOL!!

      If you are serious, then I think you need a check up from the neck up.

      Sata has completely failed to run this country and I’m tempted to agree that shallow-minded people, vote for shallow-minded leaders.

      From the time PF came into power, all indicators are nose-diving, the Kwacha being a clear indicator; It is now K6 to a dollar.

      If you are still living in wonderland, I suggest you grow up and come out of the rabbit hole.

      MMD should not pretend to be worried about this matter which failed to implement for twenty years in Govt but gobbled Billions on the exercise. Let other concerned Parties, NGOs, the Church and citizenry express their pre-mature apprehensions on this protracted constitutional making process because the Veep assured parliament and the nation that by this monthend the Draft copy will be in our hands. What the President was quoted to had said to me sounded like slip of the tongue because I am praying daily for God to use PF to give Zambia the desired people-driven constitution that will satisfy every Zambian into voting for PF again in 2016 without even campaigning!

    Unless you say president Sata was drunk when he spoke, ‘well’ there is o contex, in which you claim we should understand, but what you can say and admissible is the withdrawal of the his thoughts in totality. We all understand English so there is no need to go round.

    Shame on the PF. You know you hit the rock, and I have lost confidence in your governance.

This president is an opportunist who will look for any chance to dribble the zambian people to his advantage. I advise the Zambians never to trust the A-Team. The silence from Kabimba’s adversaries is deafening. They now know whose camp the president support. I urge the other camp to Jump ship and joint other parties. PF is a wasted project!

I, together with a number of people blogging from Zambia, watched it because I make it a point NEVER to miss the 19:00hrs news no matter how nice whatever else I was watching on another channel. So am not really understanding where people are saying this was concocted by the ZWD. In short, even you tuma PF cadres were distressed when you first heard this story and are now clutching at anything that will exonerate your hopeless leader and in this case it is an equally hopeless statement from a radio comedian.

THE DANGER WITH THAT KIND OF REASONING IS THAT YOU SHUT DOWN YOUR MIND AGAINST MANY OTHER IMPORTANT ISSUES THAT SHOULD CONCERN YOU IN THE CONSTITUTION.

    Sata thought that since he was talking in distant Kasama, somehow the Nation would not hear what he was saying. He forgets that as President whatever he says wherever he says it will be taken very seriuosly, very seriuosly. Sata’s friends in the A-Team are very upset with Sata’s uncontrolled mouth. He seems to blurt wrong things at every turn making the PF look very silly, eg his habit of insulting Ministers in public, his tantrums of abandoning project launches , his deviation from written speeches and the embarrassing rumblings he embarks on- the list is endless.
    Mwansa Kapeya attempt to put a gloss on Sata’s ill advised pronouncement wont do. Sata and PF now know just how seriuos Zambians are about the constitution. Dont dare us. Bassop!

      You didn’t hear him say anything. Somebody reported that he said what you think you heard. It was part of the plan to refute the statement if opposition from Zambians become too much.

    Mr. Kapeya,
    You are fighting fire without water. Do you think everyone is so dull? Try using sand with a tea spoon and see how far you get!

    The incurable syndrome we have in Zambia is failure to deduct and elucidate characteristics of politicians in Zambia. This explains why we are where we are with this impoverished leadership in the country. We have ended up with Mr Sata play acting as president with high risk of sliding back 30 years back, if not worse comparing the level of today’s democratic governance in the world. We have Sata, Kabimba, Kambwili, Masumba, GB Bwalya, Kapeya etc all would not meet the mark in a sensible goverment.

    OK, Mr Minister. Let us have the constitution as soon as possible. Be for Zambians and not a few individuals just because we entrusted them with political leadership.

    Kapeys please you tell your president that he is pushing his luck of being in government far too much. As Zambians we are not happy with the deceit that pushed you into government. For example, why can’t your leader see that you’re surrounded by far too many old men who are not advising your president correctly? You have completely ignored the youth and just imagine ever since 2011 there has been no credible investment coming to Zambia due to the lawlessness that is going on. I thought ruling by the Biblical Ten Commandments your government was going to uphold the rule of law!! Mwafilwa ukuteka is the answer in the minds if most Zambians.

    I don’t usually blog but my mind baffles with all those people saying watchdog cooked up the rumor. Sata supporters please answer this question did Sata say Zambia did NOT need a new constitution and that just amendments to the current one are needed? As witnessed by millions on ZNBC, stop making excuses for the old man it came out of his mouth. Just say he guffed and didn’t mean what he said and let’s move on. What kind of adults are you.

    Some bloggers are so stupid, i heard the president on both ZNBC and MUVI TV saying the current constitution have defects only needs amendments. Some ***** are refuting that he never attad such words. Go back to school and learn english. Nowanda, out of 72 languages spoken in zambia, some of u only know/speak one, hence this made u miss what exactly the president said. Go back to school *****. Burn those degrees of stupidity that you hold.

    A new constitution is one that is totally different from the previous one. In all constitutional democracies subsequent constitutions, though usually referred to as ‘new’ are never new but embody changes made to previous versions.

    Our President is right. The Technical Team will arise with an amended constitution which they will call ‘new’.

    His Statement follows allegations quoting the president saying that the current constitution only needs amendments and that Zambia did not need a new constitution.

    Is being on record also called an allegation? Stop insulting people Mwansa, this is not ifyabukaya radio show.

    By the way, the 14 or 15 hire g.uns you are not making sense by voting against every statement disagreeing with your bufi establishment. It is easy to tell that you have been hired to disagree with most bloggers.

    @ Mushota, why are you off the script today? You have always managed to sway bloggers’ comments from the topic at hand to your own humorous themes, which in most cases are not related to topical issues! Today I have noticed that you have spared the minds of our bloggers here, they are keeping to the topic.

    Kapeya really struggled to clean Sata’s mess. In what context is he expecting us to understand what Sata said when it was so clear that he did not subscribe to Zambia holding a referendum? Sometimes it’s better to keep your mouth shut than uttering things that make to sense. Kapeya must just sh.ut up because Zambians are not foo.ls. We all heard it and nothing will change our thoughts. PF must be booted out.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off
    the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if
    this is a

    format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I

    figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!

    Hope you get

    the problem solved soon. Many thanks
