A traditional ruler in Mazabuka has called on opposition political parties in the country to support President Mwanawasa’s suggestion for a national Indaba to chart the way forward in the constitution making process.
Chief Mwanachingwala says President Mwanawasa’s proposed Indaba is the surest way of breaking the impasse that has characterised the current constitution making process.
The traditional ruler says the Indaba will bring all the stakeholders to a round
table to resolve their differences.
He told ZANIS in Mazabuka today, all progressive political parties with the interest
of the Zambian people at heart, should not hesitate to attend the Indaba in order to
find solutions to the challenges facing the country.
And chief Mwanachingwala has taken a swipe at some opposition political parties and
non governmental organisations for pressurising government to take shortcuts in the
constitution making process.
He said he supports the stance taken by government to follow the constitution making
process step by step in line with available resources.
Chief Mwanachingwala has also called on the donor community to support government
financially to enable it come up with a new constitution.
