Â The Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) in Kafue district has called on the Oasis Forum to join hands with the Zambia Centre for inter party Dialogue (ZCID) to ensure that the constitutional making process is successfully implemented.
MMD Kafue Constituency Chairman, Samson Kabaso, told ZANIS in Kafue today that it
was being unreasonable for the forum to reject the process President Levy Mwanawasa
has initiated and every Zambian is supporting.
Mr Kabaso said it was surprising that the Oasis Forum, which advocates for poverty
reduction and prudent use of public resource for the good of Zambians, is in the
forefront of wanting government to spend more money which can be channeled to other
areas of need in the country.
Mr. Kabaso stated that the position of government is the best as it is trying to
ensure that resources, which are taxpayers’ money, are used wisely and benefit all
areas of the economy.Â
He said the best the Oasis Forum can do is to partner with government by monitoring
the whole process so that transparency prevails and the constitution is enacted.
Mr. Kabaso disclosed that the MMD in the district has embarked on a programme of
sensitizing its members and residents to support government so that the constitution
is enacted within the shortest possible time.Â
He said the constitution is for every Zambian and government has the right to chose
a process which is manageable and easily understood by everyone.
Meanwhile Mr. Kabaso has described the death of late MMD District Party Secretary
Teddy Zulu as aÂ loose to the party.Â
He noted thatÂ Mr. Zulu was a strong supporter of the party and was always there
whenever the party needed him.
Mr. Kabaso said the late Zulu died on Wednesday in the early hours of the morning
after an illness at Kafue district hospital.
