  1. After these amendments, are we having another party at Heroes Stadium. What happened to the pronouncements such as; “this Constitution will stand the test of time”?

  2. Lubinda when increasing your salaries you don’t consult why then should you waste time and seek submissions even on things you clearly know should be amended. You should be embarrassed to even expect people to participate when your biggest compaign promise was to amend public order act as far back as 2001.
