Edgar Lungu arrives in Luapula Province
Edgar Lungu arrives in Luapula Province

The Grand Coalition has expressed concern that the presidential candidate for the PF, Hon Edgar Lungu has refused to sign the social contract and ignored with impunity the demands for him to commit his government in writing to the delivery of the constitution if he wins. The Grand Coalition feels the Roadmap may be discarded or changed altogether should Hon. Lungu win the presidency, going by his refusal to commit himself in writing through the signing of the Social Contract. The Grand coalition said the people of Zambia are tired of the current defective constitution and we need to deliver unto ourselves a new constitution.

Meanwhile Civil Society Constitution Coalition Chairperson Judith Mulenga has charged that the release of the government roadmap for the constitution making process is an election gimmick to make people believe they are committed to enacting a new constitution.Ms. Mulenga said that if the PF government is committed enough to the enactment of a new constitution, the PF Presidential candidate should not be reluctant to sign the social contract with the Grand Coalition.

Below is the Press statement

Grand Coalition Response to the Government Roadmap

Ladies and Gentlemen, as you may be aware, on Tuesday 13 January 2015 the Ministry of Justice shared with us the Draft Proposed Constitution Roadmap and Guidelines for Public Validation of the Contents of the Final Draft Constitution, which was presented to Parliament on 23 October 2014.

From the onset, we have emphasized our demand for the Government to release a clear Roadmap and also guidelines for the validation of the Draft Constitution in a manner that would protect the content. We got very concerned when the Government released the document to parliament without a roadmap, and got even more concerned when we learnt through media reports that the Roadmap had been lost.

We therefore welcome the Government for finally yielding to our demand to release a roadmap and also to share clear guidelines of how the Draft Constitution making process will be finalised. We have noted that the proposed roadmap is in line with our demand of a referendum before the 2016 general elections.

While we commend the Government for finally releasing the Roadmap and Guidelines for the Validation of the new Constitution with timelines that are in line with our demands, we are concerned that the presidential candidate for the PF, Hon Edgar Lungu has refused to sign the social contract and ignored with impunity the demands for him to commit his government if he wins, in writing to the delivery of the constitution.

It is therefore, interesting to note that government’s Roadmap may be discarded or changed altogether should Hon. Lungu win the presidency, going by his refusal to commit himself in writing through the signing of the Social Contract.

It is for reason that Grand Coalition feels this may not be in good faith, particularly that the PF government, through their candidate, who is also Minister of Justice, have refused to demonstrate their commitment to deliver a people driven constitution by signing the Social Contract. This could be part of tactics aimed at helping the ruling party candidate.

Our concern comes due to the fact that the ruling party has refused to commit by signing the social contract which is in line with their proposed roadmap. In this vein we demand that Hon. Lungu does sign the social contract to prove that he buys in the government released roadmap failure to which we conclude that the road map is not owned by the Lungu team but government through the Acting President, Dr. Guy Scott, who has already declared that Zambia needs a new constitution.

Ladies and gentlemen,
In conclusion, allow me to emphasise that the finalisation of a people driven constitution is already long overdue. As the Grand Coalition, we remain committed and resolved to ensure that this process yields a people driven constitution. The people of Zambia are tired of the current defective constitution and we need to deliver unto ourselves a new constitution.

We demand the urgent finalisation of the Constitution making process. No New Constitution, No Vote.

God bless our lovely country Zambia.

Sara H. Longwe

    • Grand coalition, you are wasting our time. You are very indecisive and behaving as though you are operating on someone’s agenda. You should have concluded that you are therefore urging the nation not to vote for Edgar Lungu on Tuesday next week as he has demonstrated that he is not willing to be tied to a social contract, meaning he wont enact a people driven constitution. we are not kids or chicken who will be fooled over and over by successive governments. Lungu thinks he is Sata and therefore can bulldoze anything and get away with it. He can’t even read the mood in the nation against his party. We now know that the bad constitution is responsible for bad governance including corruption which has killed many citizens and continues depriving them from basic goods and services.

    • The good thng is that Lungu is not winning these elections. So we should not worry whether he has or not signed the contract. Lungu is just a use.less man and he is not even presidential material.

    • My hero in these elections has been the Zambia Police and Madam IG Stella Libongani

      Never have the Police been so fair and yet as firm despite the inter and intra party violence.

      Madam IG, continue with the great work and jolly well done.

      To whoever emerges as President next week, I personally appeal to you to maintain the IG. She has done well.

      Let us not change office holder just to please cadres. Irrespective of how she was appointed, she has earned her stars as they say.

      Once elections are over Madam IG, focus on stamping out corruption at roadblocks where your officers are unashamedly pocketing money for dubious offences.

    • I agree with the Grand Coalition. What is disturbing is that the same coalition will vote for him and again he’ll tell them that the constitution is not urgent, people won’t eat the constitution and the current constitution is valid. Again the Grand Coalition will start moaning about how deceived they will have been.

      PF has adequately addressed this issue stating that they can not and will not subordinate itself to Akainde led coalition.

U PROTESTED FOR THE “NO CONSTITUTION NO VOTE” THEY GIVE U THE ROADMAP, YOU THANK THE GOVERNMENT FOR THE MOVE. NOW YOU SAY HE WILL DISCARD IT? U WANT ZAMBIANS TO FOLLOW YOUR IMAGINATIONS? STOP PUSHING PEOPLE JUST SO U CAN LOOK RELEVANT.. ITS BETTER TO FOLLOW A PROCESS STARTED AND SEE HOW IT ENDS THEN U CAN COME IN AND SPEAK OUT, NOT IMAGINING THAT HE WONT IMPLEMENT & BELIEVE IN YOUR IMAGINATIONS, LATER ON WANTING ALL ZAMBIA TO DO SAME.

    • Mushota, politics is about the numbers. Obama traverses the whole US just to ensure he relates with voters, not being on TV with Red Eyes, for what. Afterall, Edgar Lungu will be on TV everyday starting 21st January 2015. And please Mushota, change that photo, its pathetic to say the least.

  2. Why with Grand coalition, why not direct with people of Zambia? Zambia is full of people whose only job is to attend meetings and yap. They are liability to Zambia.

    • Here is how it works; the NGO’s in the Grand Coalition have to eat and finish their NGO funded house construction projects. Billions of Kwacha will have to be put into the next phase of the constitution making effort – most of it will be chewed up by these NGOs as sitting allowances, sensitisation programmes etc. The people who speak loudest now, will be the ones appointed to committees and to lead parts of the process. Since the budget has already been passed for the year, additional borrowing will be required to feed these chaps; farmers will be paid late, there will be drug shortages in hospital; as there will be no money. Gullible donor agencies will promise funds for this; the money will be misappropriated and used to finish the house in New Kasama.

  8. This is Tom foolery on a grand coalition scale. The gov’t has released a roadmap. The grand coalition is biased and merely are de-campaigning Lungu. The fear they express is unjustified, since Lungu released the Draft Constitution pretty sharpishly. It is unfair and is an underhand tactic to promote HH. Also the same said applies to ALL parties who may win the election. They too may discard their road maps AND the signed Social Contract. It is not a legislated requirement in elections to sign an agreement with social society groups.

    WE STAND BY LUNGU as the BEST CANDIDATE into 2016.

    However Lungu must deliver the constitution, in the time remaining before 2016. Lungu should be more emphatic on delivering the constitution. He must seek the peoples support.

    • If……. there are only 10 provinces. If one does bag 5 provinces there is not much of a game plan for the others, is there? The 5 (3 as2HH), provinces is spoils shared by all.

      It is just numbers. The social contract is not a legislated requirement for elections. You seek a mandate which if all required things are in place you deliver if not you keep tabling the issue. It is advisable PF do deliver or else 2016 is never gonna happen for them on a grand scale as they will loose massive support. If that is a fact, then Grand standing coalition is doing nothing more than that. The fact of not delivering the constitution comes with its own merits or demerits.

      Voters please don’t lose sleep on this. It’s all about continuity and completing Development projects. PF DO IT…

Have Nawakwi, Chipimo or Mumba signed the social contract? The fact that PF have released a road map (plaigarised by UPND) is surely a good statement of intent and for me that is good enough. Who the Eff are Grand Coalition to start insisting of signing of social contracts – whatever they mean.

    • This is absurd on the part of the so called Grand coalition. Who are they and where are they drawing the mandate to even ask candidates to sign their useless paper? That is why lawyers are not people to play with. Do you expect Edgar to sign your useless social contract? Edgar is busy campaigning because he has got no mandate from the Zambian people to sign any thing meaningful. He is going into a genuine social contract with us after being elected not with you HH groups. Take it to Hichilema again and let him sign 20 times if he wants but not to the lawyer Chagwa. He is far ahead of your plans.

    With what we have seen so far, Edgar is more likely to finalise the constitution making process, and he has the electorate to face in 2016 to motivate him.

  29. According to Mendelows matrix of stakeholders classification i have placed the Grand coalition in terms of the” level of interest” in the elections as high and in terms of “power” as low, hence need only to be informed that Edgar Lungu will enact the new constitution. The Grass Roots also known as passive stakeholders i have classified them in terms of “level of interest”in the elections as high and in terms of “power”also as high, hence these cannot be ignored.Therefore the Grand Coalition has no legal basis to hold Edgar Lungu, HH,or indeed any other opposition leaders to ransom.

  30. These NGOs are the biggest thieves Zambia have. They come in different shapes and names just find ways of stealing Donor money, thank God its not my tax money, and try and justify the unjustifiable.

    If the so called social Contract are not legally binding, why would one waste his precious time putting ink on it? What if those who have signed the so called contract decide not to honour it, what will be the consequence?

    Listen Zambians are very learned and intelligent lot and NGOs must be careful. We know that they are composed of broke individuals unfortunately some who pretend to be Holy, twapapata, STOP STEALING HIV MONEY IMWE AND LEAVE LUNGU ALONE.

  33. Grand Coalition for heavens sake, stop remote controlling President people. Stop it now. In my view the so called road map will just delay the process for another two years. Mind you, people are fed up and tired of waiting for the enactment of the new constitution. We are tired, now what we want is enactment. You know what? Very few Zambians understand even the term ‘referendum’. How long is it going to take to go round the country to educate people and then prepare for this activity? We will be coming from an expensive election and then we should go into an expensive referendum. We do not have the time. So much money has been wasted in the past years on sittings, and allowances over a thing which is not yielding fruits. We are tired. We need enactment not signing contracts.

Ba father Chiti, I do not know if you are a catholic or an Anglican priest for sure.In our churches, we know priests to be very logical. They make good judgements. The peopleof Zambia have made their choices already. What I have been told is that you an hh supporter, while your vice – Sara has openly said she has chosen Nawakwi for the presidency. So you can see that you as an NGO are not neutral. People know you already and have stopped following you. And you know that your support is dwindling but you want to make the most noise in order for people to hear you. Sorry very will mind you. Viva Lungu

  38. Sorry I forgot to tell you that, once Lungu so elected president next week, do the honorable thing; resign or better still disband that NGO. Join hh’s upnd, make be you can make a good spokesperson. You surely do not mean well for Zambia.

  40. It’s injury time and EL has just made another spectacular maneuver, dribbled himself and scoring an own goal – the third own goal by himself in a roll! What a player!

  41. TELL ME, IS A SOCIAL CONTRACT LEGALLY BINDING? ONE CAN SIGN IT BUT STILL ABBROGATE IT. SO THE NOISE IS IRRELEVANT. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THE COMMITMENT THAT ONE HAS SHOWN SO FAR TOWARDS ENACTING THE NEW CONSTITUTION. FIRST HE HAD THE DRAFT RELEASED, THEN HE RELEASED THE ROADMAP. THAT IS ENOUGH GOOD WILL. INFACT EVEN IF LUNGU SIGNED THE CONTRACT, THE DOUBTING THOMASES WILL STILL RAISE THEIR UGLY HEADS. EL WILL STILL SIGN THE SOCIAL CONTRACT AFTER WINNING THE ELECTIONS.

  42. I think the team to watch is HH or is it flight HH2015 .Remember ,in southern Zambia they say “suffering is prior to attaining success or perfection” I have not seen this in our EL team! The other issue is Lungu is not known across the country except at city market(Lusaka) ,Kulima tower and mugubudu ( Eastern province).

  43. Live from Kopala land and Midlands:- HH has lost what seemed as Early Victory wen PF was Practicing Intra Party Democracy and now UPND is Creating Technical excuses to use after loosing next week.
    News next will read UPND is comfortably leading in their Clan Stronghold (Southern Province) of Zambia where all Chiefs are Partisan. However, the PF is Headed for a Land slide in the 6 Provinces where democracy is deep rooted as we expect Shared Votes in the remaining 3 Provinces.
    Later CJ declares Edgar Chagwa Lungu duly Elected 6th Republican President of Zambia.

  44. I put it to you that the so called Grand Coalition is the agent of the UPND’s HH, I have verifiable proof. I have said it time and again ibuti, is is not constitutional basa! It’s not there in the electoral code of conduct neither is it a prerequisite for electorate to put a tenant into state house. With or without the signing Lungu is the 6th National president, a Kabyesi! Oga tenant in Red Brick. A WORD is better than some damn Signature! An action is even better, ECL is on it already. What’s the fuss about? NGO campaigning in an African country? Mupamba!

  45. “UPND can only be ruled by a Tonga” (not any other Zambian) Quote from UPND Constitution. This is what Made Sakwiba Sikota and Chisanga who were Vice Presidents leave.
    This seems is the reason why HH and his UPND are quick to Sign those Contracts with Valueless Social Clubs. UPND has never known democracy so how do you expect them to implement and practice it. Dont trust HH you Zambians this Guy doesnt mean well just like he has failed to Condemn what Badala Munkombwe said at his rally. It took a an Indian to disassociate UPND from the old Man’s statement.

    Ifintu ni Lungu, EL 2015

  46. Mwanawasa (with roots in Lenje land) got overwhelming Votes from Northern and Luapula beating Michael Chilufya Sata. That’s democracy so lets see if UPND can do the same this time around show us that you are Democrats by Voting for otherwise.
    EL 2015 no one Else.

    THE SATANIST . FREE MASON AND DEVIL WORSHIPPERS CAN RULE ZAMBIA NEED TO SEEK THE LORD IN THEIR LIVES
    I WILL KEEP ON PRAYING FOR HH AND HIS FELLOW DEVIL WORSHIPPERS IN THE HOPE THAT ONE DAY THEY WILL SEE THE TRUE LIGHT OF THE LIVING GOD.

    2015 LET ZAMBIA VOTE FOR A TRUE CHRISTIAN
    2015 LET ZAMBIA VOTE FOR EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU

  50. The problem with these so called educated people is that they can’t make a decision. This Lungu is supposed to be DE-campaigned so that others learn a lesson. Even father Chiti is swallowing his own words; why are you wasting our time? We already agreed that any candidate who does not commit to constitution delivery is an enemy to Zambian democracy and you guys are again sitting on the fence. Come on, you can do better than this.
    No wonder late Sata used to call you yappers!
