ZAMBIANS must vote ‘YES’ in the referendum as President Lungu has delivered his promise of a people-driven Constitution, says PF Information Committee member Sunday Chanda.
He has warned Zambians to be wary of individuals who sought to suffocate Zambia’s Constitutional making process by talking against the referendum which would be held alongside the August 11 general elections.
“Zambians must be wary of individuals who seek to suffocate Zambia’s Constitutional making process by agitating against the referendum which will be held on August 11, 2016.
“It is bad political manners when seniors who must understand the challenges Zambia has had to deal with on its Constitutional journey reduce themselves to mere cadres devoid of hindsight and foresight,” Mr Chanda said.
He said it was irresponsible for anyone to campaign against the referendum which Zambians had demanded.
Mr Chanda said President Lungu had demonstrated his zeal to deliver the Constitution while he served in different portfolios such as Minister of Defence and Justice and as his campaign message for the 2015 Presidential general election.
He urged Zambians to heed President Lungu’s call to take time and familiarise themselves with the Barotseland Agreement which he said would be published in the media.
“There are those who have sought to prey on the document for purposes of scoring cheaply on the political front. President Lungu has called for thorough engagement on the document and this is a clarion call to all Zambians,” Mr Chanda said.
