The Green Party says it will not stop its campaign for the legalization of Marijuana.
Green Party Leader Peter Sinkamba has maintained that Marijuana is the best way to go if the country is to generate more income.
“As the green party we have a task to sell the green agenda by not joining any politics on the constitution making process but ensure that marijuana is legalized. The constitution making process is not worthy following because of the past experiences with the failed commissions to come up with a people driven constitution, Mr. Sinkamba said”.
He says the green party is determined to sell the agenda of legalizing marijuana so that the country can earn a minimum of US $ 15 million to the economy and bring in cheaper medicine for the Zambian people than fighting over the constitution.
“This is the only way that we can create employment for the people and make medicine available for every citizen, he says.
“u know marijuana is used for many things including the provision of medicines hence the need for it to be legalized and get the benefits that will help the country make its own medicines, Mr. Sinkamba says.
Meanwhile Mr. Sinkamba says the PF has failed to govern the country by not allowing the opposition to freely express their views.
“I think the PF government in two years have only achieved the arresting of the opposition, adding that the PF can do better after going through the harassment when in opposition.
“the conduct of the PF to harass the opposition is a recipe for violence as the opposition will not sit and allow the government attack them.” Mr Sinkamba said.
Mr. Sinkamba said the green party does not want the country to be in any civil war but continue to be the oasis of peace.
