Former Technical Committee Spokesperson Ernest Mwansa has maintained that the 10 copies of the draft constitution and other accompanying documents have been handed over to the ministry of Justice.
This comes in the wake of statements made by Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba and Permanent Secretary Joseph Akafumba denying that the draft constitution copies have been handed over to the ministry.
Mr. Mwansa has told Qfm News in an interview that the committee’s statement on the issue will not change because what was communicated to the public is the truth and nothing more.
Mr. Mwansa says the technical committee has already done its work and handed over thedocuments as instructed by government.
Mr. Mwansa adds that whatever statements are being made pertaining to the draft constitution now onwards have nothing to do with the technical Committee because the Committee has concluded its work.
Meanwhile the Oasis Forum says there is need for government to tell the nation the way forward on the constitution making process other than giving contradicting statements as this is not helping matters.
Oasis Forum Spokesperson Father Cleophas Lungu says Zambians need a new constitution as promised by the Patriotic Front government.
