Zambians should utilize their Constitutional freedoms to engage in meaningful debates-Chanda

General News Zambians should utilize their Constitutional freedoms to engage in meaningful...

Sunday Chanda

The Governing Patriotic Front has described President Edgar Lungu as statesman whose legacy is there for posterity to see and appreciate.

The PF Media Director Sunday Chanda has also encouraged Zambians to utilize their Constitutional rights and freedoms by engaging in meaningful debates aimed at creating a better Zambia for all as opposed to destructive politicking that do not espouse the values of the nation

Speaking when he made a surprise contribution on the daily talkshow, Chat Back, Mr Chanda encouraged positive discourse among citizens stating.

“It is very encouraging when we have people like you Mr (Isaac) Mwanza exercising your rights by following laid down procedures to engage with the Legislative arm of government on matters of public interest. Even as this debate goes on, our call is that people put aside any partisan agendas and consider this matter fully. ” Chanda said

Chat Back today featured Mr Isaac Mwanza, who in his personal capacity as a citizen petitioned the Speaker of the National Assembly pursuant of article 160(3) of the standing orders of the House.

In his petition, Mr Mwanza is seeking the House, through the Honourable Speaker, to move a motion to amend the Constitution and set term limits for members of parliament and elected local authorities.

When asked how he felt that the Constitution which President Lungu signed off is now giving ordinary citizens the opportunity to participate in the Legislative process, the PF Media Director responded, “You See His Excellency President Lungu is a true statesman.

He signed a document that only someone who is bold and has a vision for this country can. Whether you love him or hate him, you can never take away the fact that this man is a legend. Posterity will speak well of this man. Had it not been for some selfish people that sabotaged the referendum process, today Zambians would have been enjoying more human rights had the Bill of Rights passed.”

Chat Back is an interactive live talk show that airs every weekday between 09 and 11 am on Radio Christian Voice.


  1. Ba Chanda,you have a bad reputation.When you reserve perpetual praise for one person and condemnation for the other in anticipation of a reward then you have no conscience.I do not know what future you and Amos Chanda will have after this short and difficult era.

  2. Which freedoms are available bcoz the right to assemble is not available, the right to speech is not available. ….
