President Sata schools HH

PRESIDENT Michael Sata has distanced Government from any intentions of manipulating the draft Republican Constitution, describing such a motive as retrogressive and selfish.
President Sata dismissed as groundless opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema’s assertions that the Patriotic Front (PF) administration planned to manipulate the draft Constitution and ‘sneak’ in a clause that would extend the presidential term to eight years.
President Sata advised Mr Hichilema to conduct a self-introspection and assess if his endless slander, pessimism and bitterness were adding value to the country’s political discourse.
“Nobody within or outside Government has ever contemplated or lobbied for such a retrogressive and selfish agenda,” Mr Sata said.
Mr Sata said it was clear that Mr Hichilema lacked political civility or basic decency and was resolved to harm mature, rational and constructive discourse on matters affecting the country.
