Lungu’s legacy will be appreciated-Chanda


The Governing Patriotic Front has described President Edgar
Lungu as statesman whose legacy is there for posterity to see
and appreciate.

The PF Media Director Sunday Chanda has also encouraged
Zambians to utilize their Constitutional rights and freedoms by
engaging in meaningful debates aimed at creating a better
Zambia for all as opposed to destructive politicking that do
not espouse the values of the nation

Speaking when he made a surprise contribution on  the
daily talkshow,  Chat Back,  Mr Chanda encouraged
positive discourse among citizens stating.

“It is very encouraging when we have people like you Mr (Isaac)
Mwanza exercising your rights by following laid down procedures
to engage with the Legislative arm of government on matters of
public interest. Even as this debate goes on,  our call is
that people put aside any partisan agendas and consider this
matter fully. ” Chanda said

Chat Back today featured Mr Isaac Mwanza, who in his personal
capacity as a citizen petitioned the Speaker of the National
Assembly pursuant of article 160(3) of the standing orders of
the House.

 In his petition, Mr Mwanza is seeking the House,
 through the Honourable Speaker,  to move a motion to
amend the Constitution and set term limits for members of
parliament  and elected local authorities.

When asked how he felt that the Constitution which President
Lungu signed off is now giving ordinary citizens the
opportunity to participate in the Legislative process,
 the PF Media Director responded, “You See His Excellency
President Lungu is a true statesman.

He signed a document that only someone who is bold and has a
vision for this country can. Whether you love him or hate him,
you can never take away the fact that this man is a legend.
Posterity will speak well of this man.  Had it not been
for some selfish people that sabotaged the referendum process,
today Zambians would have been enjoying more human rights had
the Bill of Rights passed.”

Chat Back is an interactive live talk show that airs every
weekday between 09 and
11 am
 on Radio Christian Voice.
