President Edgar Lungu has said that he will invite all stakeholders across the country to witness his assent to the Constitution of Zambia Amendment Bill.
Speaking in Kasama shortly before he left for Kawambwa yesterday, President Lungu said that the PF government has fulfilled its promise to give the people of Zambia a constitution that they wanted.
“The PF means business and you can see what happened recently when they thought we were playing, but we gave them the constitution. Now they are backtracking and asking for some of the clauses approved by Parliament to be removed,” he said.
He said he will sign the document as soon as he returns to Lusaka and if the Government Printing Department and the National Assembly have completed their part.
He also reiterated his appeal to Zambians to preserve and maintain peace.
President Lungu said the police also deserve the support of all citizens to discharge their duties of maintaining peace and order.
He thanked the people of Northern Province for being peaceful and urged the youth to ensure that they remain calm.
“I want to thank you the people of Northern Province for maintaining law and order and this is the way it should be and you should not despair but stand on the truth and always seek peace. We are the ones that can maintain peace. Some of the opposition leaders are cowards and they are not wise, you can’t blame them for that. So, when they want to come back, just welcome them,” said President Lungu.
Meanwhile, President Edgar Lungu has said that Rainbow party leader Wynter Kabimba is not a factor in Zambian politics.
President Lungu wondered how Mr Kabimba rates himself in politics for him to tell Zambians to vote out the PF government in the 2016 general elections.
The Head of state was responding to questions from journalists shortly after his arrival at city airport on Wednesday evening.
President Lungu said that he is happy that people are appreciating his leadership style which he said is inspired by God.
