Opposition Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) President Edith Nawakwi has urged the PF Government to explain the delay in releasing the final draft constitution to Zambians.
Ms. Nawakwi has told QFM New in an interview that government on its own started the issue of the constitution and not Zambians hence the need for them to deliver the constitution.
Ms. Nawakwi has noted with concern the different statements that have so far been given by government regarding the release of the draft constitution.
She explains that she has closely been following the circus about the draft constitution and there is no need for the government to continue treating the citizens like a small child anymore.
Ms. Nawakwi stresses that President Michael Sata promised to give the draft constitution to the people immediately the technical committee did so but this has not been the case even after the technical committee stated that they have handed over the draft document.
