The Christian Coalition has unearthed a scam where some people are planning to petition that the clause of the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation be removed from the constitution.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lusaka today, Coalition President Charles Mwape says the country will forever remain a Christian nation citing that the country has a covenant with God.
He says as Christians, they will rise and protect the declaration of Zambia as a Christian nation adding that instead Zambia as a Christian nation should be moved from the preamble to an article in the constitution.
And Dr. Mwape says the partial amendment of the constitution should be supported by all genuine Zambians citing that they agree with the National Restoration Party and the Young African Leader’s Initiative (YALI) that the country does not have resources to hold a referendum.
Dr. Mwape notes that as long as the contents of the draft constitution are safe, there is no need to worry about the partial amendment as the only fear is tempering with the contents.
He adds that the constitution making process is beyond political campaigns and thus must not be politicized but be taken seriously.
Dr. Mwape has further that Zambians should be honest with themselves and support the partial amendment of the constitution if they want a constitution.
