Call in to speak with the host
This week on Perspectives we will be interviewing Simon Kabanda, spokesperson for the Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian Constitution. This committee was convened by President Sata in November 2011 and was tasked with drafting a new constitution.
The first draft was just released on April 30. The forty-day review and comment period is currently underway. We encourage all our friends and listeners to review the document, and educate themselves on what could likely be our national constitution.
Please come prepared for a vigorous discussion with Mr Kabanda. Among the issues we will discuss with him are a) the next steps in this constitutional review process, b) the likelihood that this committee’s work will be successfully adopted while others have died prematurely, and c) the amount budgeted for this work.
It's good to talk.
