Opposition Patriotic Front President Michael Sata has promised to re-visit the Mun’gomba draft constitution within 90 days once voted into power.
Mr. Sata said that the country only needed a strong constitution that will protect all citizens in the country unlike the current situation where citizens are not secured.
The PF leader said that the constitution of the country should be left to provide security to civil servants whom he said are not secure as they can be kicked out of employment at any time without proper guidelines being followed.
He was speaking in Lusaka today during a public forum by the Post Newspapers’s Press Freedom Committee.
Mr. Sata said that it was unfortunate that the draft constitution failed to pass due to the selfishness of Republican Vice President George Kunda, who he said appointed himself commissioner of the National Constitution Conference in order to make money.
Mr Sata said that the office of the Republican Vice President carries too much power. Mr Sata claimed that the Vice President has too much power, enough to make the incumbent manipulate the running of the economy.
Mr Sata could not however state exactly what his party plans to do in order to restrict the respective powers once elected into office.
