PFThe 16 opposition political parties under the grand coalition have vowed to take the constitution fight to the streets following the refusal to dialogue by President Michael Sata.

President Sata has ignored two letters from the opposition on the call for dialogue and has particularly shown loathe for any suggestion at following up the demands for the new constitution.

Spokesperson for the 16 political parties Javan Kamanga said if necessary the opposition political parties will organize marches to State House to press their demands.

He said it was time to forget about entrusting the PF government with the responsibility of leading the way for delivering a people driven constitution.

Kamanga said picketing parliament would also be used as an option to demand for a new constitution.

While most leading civil society organizations, the church, student bodies and the general citizenry have been unanimous in their call for a new constitution, the PF has remained disinterested despite having shouted the loudest whilst campaigning for power.

President Sata has turned around and called constitution advocates, his former allies in the constitutional struggle, as yappers.

Privately owned Muvi Television lost their right to cover State House assignments for drawing the turnaround on the constitution by unearthing a clip where President Sata had promised Zambians publicly of a new constitution within 90 days.
