The opposition United Party for National Development has called on republican President Michael Sata to urgently address the Constitution Instability that has characterized the Country since Independence.
UPND Deputy Spokesperson Edwin Lifwekelo observed that there are many unresolved questions of interest to the public that remain hanging which the current Executive needs to resolve concerning the constitution.
The UPND Assistant Spokesperson says the Nation deserves to be informed to avoid unhealthy speculations and rumors thereby noting that it is unfortunate that the Patriotic Front PF Government has departed and relaxed on its commitment to uphold the fundamental tenants of democracy, good governance and the rule of law.
He further stated that the current government promised the people of Zambia a number of things prior to the 2011 General Elections among them stabilizing the Constitution instability which he said has characterized the Country since Independence.
And Mr. Lifwekelo urged the Zambia Police Service to accord equal opportunities to the opposition and Civil Society Organizations to conduct their activities peacefully.
Mr. Lifwekelo says the unfair restrictions of people’s liberties using the Public Order Act are a breeding dangerous discontent.
He further observed that the Public Order Act is both repressive and anachronistic in interpretation by the Police and must be repealed as Zambians get an impression that they were used like toilet issue by the PF Government.
