Zambia to hold referendum after constitution process

JUSTICE minister Wynter Kabimba says the country will hold a referendum at the end of the constitution-making process.

And Kabimba says it will be a liability for the government to set up a referendum commission now.

Meanwhile, Council of Churches in Zambia general secretary Reverend Suzanne Matale says telling lies by those in leadership positions has become normal and that this is frightening.

And delegations from the sector group conventions yesterday commenced their three-day sittings in Lusaka to deliberate on various submissions received by the Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian Constitution.

Speaking during the launch of the report on the study on political governance in Zambia at Inter-Continental Hotel yesterday, Kabimba said the PF constitution makes it very clear that the country shall hold a referendum at the end of the constitution-making process.
