      Sitting African Presidents are the main causers of wars and confusion on the African continent. Why should a few corrupt, greed and selfish PF criminals hijact a document that belongs to the Zambian people? This lunatic at state house promised Zambian people a constituion in 90 days, now the fo.o.l changes all of sudden just because it now suits him. May rot in hell Sata after you check out.

    It is important for the PF government to listen to the people now before its too late. PF must remember that times are changing and that the people are no longer the same. Look at what is still happening in the Arab world. Lets avoid that because in such cases, there is no winner or loser. You came to power by pretending that you are a man of action but what we see is worse than what MMD was doing.
    Late President Mwanawasa said and i quote: Better the devil you know than the Angel you don’t know. It was better with MMD than with PF.

    LT you are doing well on the issue of the constitution, please keep it up and remind us of what this PF govt promised. I read in the british history a long time ago, one of the kings wanted to bypass parliament in his decision making and war broke out between those that wanted parliamentary consultation and those that supported the king. The king lost and power was restored to parliament.

    The same way all of us need to fight for this constitution which actually looks alright so far, not for our personal benefit, but for the future of Zambia, for our children and children’s children. The freedom we are enjoying now in developed countries was fought for by some people who did not live to enjoy that freedom.

      Fantastic solidarity by the Zambian people against these shameless gun-totting pirates who have hijacked the Constitution making process. The Constitution is not a PF Constitution but a Zambian Constitution. It doesn’t belong to the PF nor to the PF government. The New Constitution belongs to the people of Zambia and the Zambian people are in order to demand for it.

      Its the worst kind of robbery to steal the Constitution from the people. Must the whole country be held hostage by one demon?
