Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) president Father Frank Bwalya says he is disappointed that government has continued to play gimmicks on the Access to Information bill also known as the Freedom of information bill.

Speaking to Qfm in an interview, Father Bwalya says it is unacceptable for government to fail to pay serious attention to such an important law.

Father Bwalya says government is dragging on the bill for fear of allegedly exposing government officials involved in corruption.

He says the bill once enacted will help the media expose corruption in government in government institutions.

The ABZ leader who is also former MISA Zambia Chairperson stresses the need for government to take the Access to Information Bill to parliament for enactment without further delay as expected by the Zambian people who vote them in office.

Father Bwalya has since appealed to republican President Micheal Sata to take a step further and ensure that the Access to Information bill is enacted as promised to the media during the run up to 2011 election campaigns.
