LUSAKA Diocese Archbishop Telesphore Mpundu has advised Zambians against thinking that a perfect constitution is the only solution for the country’s problems.
In an interview with the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC), Archbishop Mpundu said it is not only the constitution that matters but the people that are charged with the responsibility of managing institutions of governance.
Archbishop Mpundu said even countries that are deemed to have good constitutions still face many social and economic challenges.
He said what Zambia needs is a culture of honesty and integrity by people in government.
Archbishop Mpundu said there is need for moral realignment, especially for people aspiring for office in the country.
The archbishop has welcomed dialogue on the constitution-making process, saying it is only through exhausting all avenues of dialogue that all Zambians will appreciate the process.
