Justice Minister Ngosa Simbyakula says a bill to protect and guide the remaining phases of the constitution making process is being prepared and will be table in next sitting of Parliament which resumes later this month.
Dr. Simbyakula told QFM News in an interview that government through his ministry is carefully handling the process of the constitution bill to protect and guide the remaining phases of the enactment of a new constitution.
He said government is in agreement that non-contentious clauses such as the presidential running mate clause contained in the draft constitution can be amended through Parliament.
Dr Simbyakula said the constitution making process is not a preserve of government but all stakeholders.Dr Simbyakula said government wants to deliver a people driven constitution to the Zambian people.
He has since appealed to stakeholders to support government’s phased approach in the enactment of the new constitution.
