The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has formally began the process of amending its constitution.

Chairperson for legal affairs Brian Mundubile has disclosed during a PF interactive media forum held in Lusaka.

Mr. Mundubile has also confirmed that part of the amendments will include provisions of who takes over party leadership when the incumbent dies or can no longer perform his or her functions.

He states that to this effect a special committee chaired by party National Chairperson Samuel Mukupa has been instituted to get submissions ahead of the actual amending of the party constitution.

Mr. Mundubile who is also Northern Province Minister and Mporokoso Member of Parliament says the committee has been tasked to go round the Country to engage the party membership.

He says the ruling PF is therefore expected to have an amended constitution by 2020.

And Mr. Mundubile has further disclosed that Northern Province will this year hold the first ever Tourism and Investment Expo which will run from the 20th to the 24th of November.

Mr. Mundubile says the Expo will end at the eve of the centenary to mark the end of the second world war which will also be commemorated in Mbala where the war has been recorded to have ended.

He says Cabinet has since approved K15 million to host the event.

  1. Who cares!
    The leaders themselves will be the first to trash the party constitution.
    Remember some people got themselves elected by a show of hands and woke up a Judge at midnight to keep the abrogation in effect.

  2. Shoulda thought about sticking to party constitution when ECL was “chosen” unproceduraly as PF flag bearer for 2015 by-elections.

  5. You can amend a constitution a million times but if you have leadership that is corrupt to the core like PF is, then you are wasting your time. How can a thief be in charge of planning your future and budgeting? think about it kikiki kuti waseka.

    • HH is the mastermind of defrauding Government in the privatization enrichment scheme. He is the Chief Corrupt. And he is UPND baby – Childish.

    • You could be right @ Sharon but then you and your likes who believe in what you have failed to prove as not to bring HH before the court must be accomplices of corruption otherwise this is just playing malice!

  6. What does the current constitution say about who takes over? Basically if a vice is there, then the vice must takeover to finish the term of the president. If the vice dies or becomes incapable to lead before the term is over, then a presidential election must be held. As a suggestion, the clause should be inline with that of the Zambia Constitution.

    • GBM will take over in 2021. What does the Constitution say when Hazaluza Hagain will be forced to retire in 2021?

  7. “Democratic Republic of Congo -DRC Presidential Aspirant Moise Katumbi says Zambians should be proud that they have a president who is focused on development.

    Mr. Katumbi says the unprecedented development taking place in Zambia can only be achieved with a leadership that is centered on serving its people.” Source ZNBC

  8. If your only source of news is LT or Galu Watchers in Zambia, you may think Zambia is a disaster! if you read other news outlets you are amazed at how much this government has been doing! Keep it up Mr. President! Mad cow disease with red eyes will NEVER usurp power from you! You have been doing a great job in Zambia and definitely he will foam at his mouth in 2021, Hagain.

  10. Any constitution, like any document, requires periodic review because times are always changing. It does not mean the current pf constitution is wrong. Even leaders are always changing except in UPND.

  11. The main issue i expect to be amended in the PF constitution which is silent for now is to make ECL a life president. Watch the space.
