Political activist Dante Saunders delivers a speech during the gathering to demand for the release of the Zambian constitution

A political activist Dante Saunders has observed that calls for the president to fire under performing government officials will always fall on deaf eyes as long as the country continues to be governed under the same constitution.

Speaking in an interview Mr Saunders the country continues to have a number of challenges in dealing with ministers and other government appointees because the president has been given too much powers under the current constitution.

He said the country needs the new constitution which should help the people participate in the governance of the nation as opposed to the current situation were the president is the only person who is allowed to drop under performing ministers and other government appointees.

And Mr. Saunders says the call for Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda to resign or be fired by the president is a waste of time as that will not happen.

He said president Sata can not fire Mr. Chikwanda because he is a relative and that Mr. Chikwanda has no morality to resign by himself.

He said this is the more reason the country needs the new constitution which will limit the powers of the president and empower the citizens to have a say in the way they are governed.

Yesterday former Special Assistant for Policy and Project monitoring to late republican president Levy Mwanawasa, Jack Kalala demanded for immediate resignation of Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda for calling people who were agitating for the re introduction of the windfall tax lunatics.

Mr Kalala said if Mr Chikwanda does not resign on his on then Zambians should force him out office as letting him continue would vindicate his statement that Zambians lunatics for demanding for their rightful share from their mineral resources.
