Dr Ngosa Simbyakula MP is the Justice Minister in the Patriotic Front government and he was the first cabinet minister announced by President Edgar Lungu in his historic inaugural speech which was held at the Heroes Stadium away from the traditional venue at the steps of the Supreme Court. President Lungu categorically stated that; "I want to hand you a new constitution. We will definitely deliver a people-driven constitution as per the road map we released recently." He entrusted Dr Simbyakula with the task of ensuring the government enacts a people driven constitution to the people of Zambia. The constitution making process has been a contentious issue in Zambian politics prior to the multi- party era and the nation has witnessed commission after commission as presidents took office. The civil society and church mother bodies have made their presence known in the process. Dr Simbyakula joins us to discuss the PF government's road map to the constitution making process. Can this be achieved before the 2016 General elections?
