The Zambia Council for Social Development (ZCSD) says it is unacceptable for the ruling party to insinuate that Civil Society Organizations want a new constitution because they are pushing for the introduction of homosexuality in the country.
ZCSD Executive Secretary Lewis Mwape has told QFM News that during the constitution national consultative Conference those issues were discussed and wonders why the ruling party is diverting the attention.
Mr. Mwape says the PF will do well to inform the nation if they have included any clauses in the final draft constitution aimed at promoting homosexuality in the country.
He says PF officials accusing CSOs of trying to promote homosexuality are new in the PF and do not understand anything about the constitution, describing them as hired voices.
Mr. Mwape states that the main reason some Civil society organizations decided to join the Grand Coalition is because they wanted to join forces with others stakeholders who are committed to ensuring that the country comes up with a new constitution.
