The Grand Coalition on the demand for a people driven constitution has said that the failure by the Patriotic Front to publish the Constitution Amendment Bill 2015 and the Constitution of Zambia Bill 2015 makes it very difficult for the people to believe the PF.
Justice Minister Ngosa Simbyakula told parliament on Thursday that the Constitution Amendment Bill 2015 and the Constitution of Zambia Bill 2015 would be published Yesterday, Saturday, 1st August, 2015.
But Coalition Spokesperson Macdonald Chipenzi has said that they expected the situation citing that they knew that there was no bill at the government printers waiting to be printed and later published.
Mr. Chipenzi said that the failure to publish the constitutional bill has made Zambians to lose confidence not only in the Minister of Justice himself but government as a whole noting that they cannot continue to lie to the people.
Mr. Chipenzi added that parliament has been a playground for liars explaining that the PF lied on the floor of the house adding that if they were serious accountability mechanisms, government would not have taken parliament for granted by telling the house what it was not sure of.
Mr. Chipenzi said what has happened is not a strange thing to the people of Zambia as there has been so many inconsistencies by the government.
He further stated that the people of Zambia were ready to see the constitution bill published but are disappointed.
