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.

    It goes without saying that the Zambian people should not accept the said constitution once the government decides to release it. This is the time Civil Society the opposition and all well meaning Zambians should stand up with one voice.
    Why should all of 13 million people be railroaded by a handful of power hungry ignoramuses?

      Zambians are too docile and don’t see its importance our Kenyan bothers and sisters are more organised when it comes to issues of this nature.

      Firstly, all those in the TC whom we all thought had an iota of being strong willed, have just lost the little respect they had in zedian eyes!! They were given a NATIONAL DUTY to perform & NOT A POLITICAL EXERCISE!! They acted on behalf of the Zedians!! NOT ON BEHALF OF A TINPOT DICTATOR!!

      They have always had the TOOLS TO PUBLISH IN THEIR HANDS -Their Website!! – BUT CHOSE NOT TO!! What were they afraid of?? Were they threatened to be thrown in prison that everything under their pants shook so hard, they couldn’t stand the thought for even a fraction of a second, thus ACQUIESCED to COLLUDE with PF on this one & LAMELY CLAIM the mandate had expired??

    Mostly african presidents think they are the alfa and the omega.
    As is the case here in Zambia the supreme leader thinks we are stupid.I cant hesitate 2 state the fact that the man is drunk with power.
    But he shud owaz b reminded that we will owaz have the last laugh one day and we r watching.Some pipo think that Zambians are sleepy but thats a virtue of an inteligent mind.We are silent observers.Ask KK he can testify.
