The award for biggest ‘insult’ of the year goes to ….
Non Governmental Organization Coordinating Council (NGOCC) says the failure by the Technical Committee to release the draft constitution to the Zambian people as promised is the biggest insult of the year.
Ngocc Board Chairperson Beatrice Grillo told Qfm News that the Patriotic Front government has taken the Zambian people for granted.
Ms. Grillo stressed that it is unfair for government and the technical committee to fool Zambians after spending colossal sums of money on the constitution making process.
She added that the failure to release the final draft constitution is a big joke because the resources that have been spent on the process could have been used for better things.
Ms Grillo said government’s directive to the technical committee to print only ten copies of the final draft constitution is a mockery to the Zambian people.
The Technical Committee has decided to only handover the copies requested by government as opposed to simultaneously handing the copies to both the appointing authority and the Zambian people as promised.
