Grand Coalition Members pray for God intervention in the Constitution Making process.

Grand Coalition Members on Saturday held a provincial prayer meeting in Chipata to seek God intervention in the constitution making process.

Speaking on behalf of Grand Coalition members, Andrew Ntewewe says people are demanding for the new constitution because President Michael Sata promised Zambians to deliver a new constitution within 90 days after getting into power.

Mr Ntewewe says that Mr Sata also assured people through the National Assembly that the draft constitution would be adopted through a national referendum.

And Caritas Chipata Director, Fr. Vincent Daka says more freedom is needed for Zambians and that this can only be achieved with a good constitution in place.

Fr. Daka pointed out that freedom can be manipulated if a constitution is not very clear.

And Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia EFZ Representative, Bishop William Banda stated that people are concerned with what is happening in the nation.

Bishop Banda stated that the gathering should not be misunderstood as the clergy speak for the voiceless for justice.

Meanwhile Chipata Central Member of Parliament Reuben Mtolo Phiri says promises made before the people should be fulfilled at all costs.

He says the opposition parties in the past months have tried in many ways to remind the national executive to deliver the constitution but to no avail.
