Sata Forced to Dispute 8-Year Term Plan

President Michael Sata was last evening forced to come out of his hole and dispute Patriotic Front secret plans to alter the Republican Constitution by extending the presidential term of office from five to eight years describing his own motive as retrogressive and selfish.

Sata, the proponent and chief campaigner of the Frederick Chiluba third term motive, was forced to respond to opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema a loose canon.

He claimed in a statement issued by State House press aide George Chellah that the assertion was groundless because the PF administration was planned to manipulate the draft Constitution and ‘sneak’ in a clause that would extend the presidential term to eight years.

President Sata stated that Hichilema should conduct a self-introspection and assess if his endless slander, pessimism and bitterness were adding value to the country’s political discourse.
