PF Secretary General Davis Chama says party president Edgar Lungu is committed to enacting the country’s constitution whether he signs the constitution social contract or not.

The Grand Coalition on the Demand for the People Driven Constitution has asked all eleven candidates participating in the January 20th presidential election to sign its social contract which commits whoever signs it to ensuring that the country’s new constitution is enacted before 2016.

But Mr. Chama has told Qfm News his party is of the view that signing the said social contract is a non issue as what is important is the willingness and availability of funds to enact the constitution.
Mr. Chama says this does not however mean Mr. Lungu is afraid to sign the social contract.

He says Mr. Lungu has already made it public that he is willing and he is committed to ensuring that the country has a new supreme law before the 2016 general elections.

The PF Secretary General says while people take note of this promise Mr. Lungu has made, they should also remember that Mr. Lungu’s committed towards enacting the new constitution was earlier demonstrated by his releasing the final draft constitution within a space of two months after being appointed Justice Minister.

He says it is thus clear that the ruling party is committed to this course of enacting Zambia’s new constitution.

Mr. Chama states that it is further important to keep it in mind that when one is elected republican President it means that that individual has also signed a contract with the people and therefore he or she is mandate to do the wishes of the people.

He says it is for this reason that his party thinks that is not an issue whether Mr. Lungu signs the social contract with the Grand Coalition or not as he is already willing to deliver the new constitution.

The ruling PF Chief Executive Officer notes that his party is also mindful that it has limited time to enact the constitution before the 2016 general election.

He says the ruling party’s hope is however that it will manage to do so within remaining space of time.

  1. I LIKE THE HONESTNESS IN PF LEADERSHIP.

    NOT EMPTY PROMISES FROM A BUNCH OF LIARS HEADED BY TONGA MAN HHICHHILEEMAA DEPUTIZED BY PERPETUAL NATIONAL ALARMIST – dr. CANICIUS ‘ I WILL GIVE FREE THIS AND THAT..’
    WE ARE ALL REQUIRED BY NATURE TO WORK AND WORK HARD TO MEET OUR NEEDS AND DESIRES.

    FREENESS IS RECIPE TO LAZINESS; AND LAZYNESS IS UNGODLY.

    • On my way from Lusaka west I saw HH’s bill board that listed things like;

      More jobs
      Farmers
      Low mealie price, fuel.
      bla bla.

      But alas! There is no mention on how he will achieve such utopian intentions. The chap has completely lost it.

      At PF we are saying:

      1. “We shall reduce mealie price by SETTING UP MILLING PLANTS IN DISTRICTS”.

      2. We shall decentralize and create markets for agric produce by LINKING ZAMBIA

      3. Improve lives of people by L200 project, reopen NITROGEN CHEMICALS, KAPIRI GLASS FACTORY SOON etc

      4. Develop Western province by linking this important part through infrastructure development. Mongu-Kalabo road.

      5. Improve education, health..its all being done

      6. Respect the rule of law. Its evident.

      7. No abuse of public resources. Its our goal

    • @Gen, how come these are being re-promised in your third year of governance? For the past years when people have complained about the high mealie meal prices, where was the government when they couldn’t articulate these plans? Did it take a presidential by-election to have a eureka moment?

    • The PF has cancelled another rally due to poor attendance in Isoka.
      PF candidate Edgar Lungu was scheduled to address a rally in Isoka after getting endorsement and Boko Haram money from Rupiah Banda in Chipata.
      The PF heavily advertised the rally but pulled down the stage after realising that only children turned up to listen to music
      ‘Lungu came as near as Chief Watwika in Nakonde hoping people wull gather in numbers. .. but only children were there even upto 14pm …I was at Zwangendaba Lodge where the Leadership was communicating to the Presidential team that was said to be at Chief Waitwika in Nakonde. ..where it was resolved that the rally be cancelled it was going to embarrasse the ruling Party’ said a contact.
      This is a second embarrassment following another poorly attended…

  2. Lungu is matured, he is also a lawyer who does not want to do things overnight jus to please people to earn votes, that may not work well over a perion of time, our constitution needs enough time,

  3. Creating real jobs, improving the education system, lowering the cost of living, supporting farmers, providing cheaper healthcare, building BETTER roads and infrastructure. This is what HH promises to deliver. Lungu, if you have a vision and you believe you are the right candidate then accept HH’s invitation to a live televised debate to discuss these issues. HH is ready anytime.

  6. Sata publicly promised us more money in our pockets, a constitution in 90 days, better health care and improved education system. Alas, youths re employed as casual workers cleaning railway tracks & spreading cement on roads to be rehabilitated, no drugs in clinics(that is why he went to die in UK not UTH), sata’s son is in school in SA because there is no quality education in Zambia.

    • @7 EVEN HERE WHERE I LIVE (A HIGHLY INDUSTRIALISED AND CIVILISED COUNTRY) SOME OF THE PROMISES POLITICIANS PROMISE PEOPLE NEVER GET ACHIEVED WHILE OTHERS DO. NOT EVERYTHING A POLITICIAN PROMISES EVER GET ACHIEVED THAT IS IF YOU ARE LUCKY THEY EVEN ACHIEVE ANY. BUT IN THE CASE OF PF, THEY PROMISED THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF WHICH MOST OF IT HAS BEEN DONE AND MOST OF IT IS STILL BEING DONE. GIVEN TWO TERMS OF OFFICE OR MORE, PF WILL LEAVE ZAMBIA A BETTER PLACE. ONE OF MY ACQUAINTANCES VISITED ZAMBIA LESS THAN TWO MONTHS AGO AFTER HAVING NOT BEEN THERE FOR ABOUT FOUR YEAR. HE CAME BACK WITH HIGH EXCITEMENTS WITH THE DEVELOPMENTS THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN ZAMBIA. HE DID NOT EXPECT TO GO TO HIS HOME VILLAGE ON A TARRED ROAD. AS IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH HE FOUND A HEALTH CENTRE IN HIS VILLAGE. VOTE EL.

  7. That is why we are saying putting HH in power will be a very BIG mistake. The guy has no experience on how to run a country. He signed that contract not having a slight clue about what is expected of him regarding that constitution in case he is elected. With all his promises where is he going to get the money to finalise that document? He promised to do away with RTSA which is second to ZRA in terms of revenue generation and yet he has promised us free education, loans to farmers and vendors, cheap mealie meal and fuel, where is he going to get money with in 12 months to fulfil these promises. Is he forgetting that we have elections in 2016 and people will expect results b4 elections?

  8. Social contract is a western way of showing commitment. But we are Africans for a reason no wonder u can’t compare our lusaka to western cities. And most Zambians see zed to be well in order

  9. God best knows why we r so shallow as African.
    From lies about constitution, borosteland, chitimukulu, sata’s illness, their presidential conference, political violence, now EL’s health, their campaign money from muslims Boko haram, is it the love of the country why people will vote for PF or just being typical African or the equivalent of anti progress which lead to assassination of Martin Luther?

  11. Social contracts drafted by some NGOs are meaningless copying everything to see in the west then you want people to sign it as if its part of the constitution??? Waste of time its has no backing of the law and what do uou do when one defaults ho back to politics. Campaigns in it self is a contract.
    Debates where you just want one candidate yo opposite you no, no.
    Hh can debate with Mulyokela the whole campagn period if he wants.Insisting on EL is not fair.
    Hh kaya he had a TV programme when he was on a chopper and said nothing tangiable, he just want to get to state house with every useless document and lie hr is making. Lets wait for 23rd January2015.

  12. If it is true that Lungu is using RB money and not Nsanda that is good news. RB wants to punish the bemba people for the pain he has gone through the last 3 years. All bembas will be fired from top positions, replaced by other tribes as Lungu consolidates his position for 2016, if this is true, Lungu has my back. After all us bembas are one of the lest educated in Zambia, used to stealing and thuggery behavior. I think whoever wins HH or Lungu, the bemba are in trouble this time around. I give Lungu the benefit of doubt but I think if he is dealing with the mature RB who has learned the lesson of how bembas can mistreat you, it will be a nice game. Punish the bembas, he can still win 2016 as bemba is not Zambia, all tribes make up Zambia. At this point go Lungu or HH. Fix my tribe.

  13. @chief analyser Lungu is not a lawyer, he is a FAILED LAWYER. Aba ma dizzy has succeeded only at earning the reputation of being the last person to leave the bar. The PF government has failed in all area. The development projects they are referring to are all under funded with contractors having to bribe government officials to chase payments. We poor farmers being arrested when they request for payments that are rightfully theirs. Babies being delivered on the floor at UTH. UNZA in complete disarray. Can someone name anything the PF government has done right? When they get sick they run to london or milpark while fwe ba chuula die at home with no medicines. The PF is a heartless regime. Guy Scott is probably the only person with integrity left in this lot. PF has to go!

  15. @Blago The phenomenon known as the “GBM EFFECT” is slowly manifesting itself. Political science scholars will study this in the future and explain how a party in power completely impolded by choosing a wrong successor. PF is done.

  17. I know that PF has done a donchi kubeba on us before, but I cannot help admiring the level headeness of their new Secretary General this Davies Chama. Damn good choice, Edgar, where did you get this from? He is a real breath of fresh air, from the obnoxious and arrogant Kabimba. He seems full of respect for others and a sense of honesty about him. Please don’t let us down this time once we elect your PF again, okay Chama?

  18. PF have all lost it under RB. Remember how Sata harassed RB, now RB has put E. Lungu in his pocket. All PF forget it.
    Only HH can respect you as has already been respected by Chitimukulu. The ball is in your court PF.
    Ifintu ni HH.
