Don’t undermine dialogue bill – Chief Madzimawe
Chief Madzimawe of the Ngoni people of Kasenengwa district has appealed to stakeholders not to undermine the Dialogue Bill on the Constitution Amendments but instead offer solutions on how it can be refined.
Chief Madzimawe says all stakeholders should support the bill which was recently approved by cabinet to give a legal framework to dialogue ahead of the commencement of the constitution refinement process.
He says the church should not take over and run the whole process.
Chief Madzimawe notes that the country appears not to be going forward as it is going back and forth due to some opposition political parties and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) who are in a habit of opposing everything that Government puts of the table.
The traditional leaders says parliament, which is a representation of the people of Zambia is better placed to consider the bill through its various stages before the bill is enacted.
