The Grand Coalition in Eastern Province has charged that foreign heroes who fought for the liberation of Africa would be disappointed to learn that Zambia is still been governed using the old colonial masters constitution.
This is contained in a press statement availed to Breeze News by Grand Coalition on the people driven constitution process Provincial Chairperson, Maxwell Nkhoma.
Mr. Nkhoma says that this year’s celebration of the African freedom day is special because it comes at a time when the people of Zambia are demanding for the enactment of the new constitution.
He says that it is not good for a country like Zambia to be ruled by an old constitution after fifty years of independence.
Mr. Nkhoma says that the enactment of the new constitution will enable all citizens of this country to fully enjoy their rights and freedoms that the foreign fathers fought for.
He has also called on the people of Eastern Province to take time and reflect on why African countries have remained politically and economically undeveloped.
