Kafue MP Chonya assures electorate over constitution making process

By Staff Reporter

KAFUE UPND member of parliament Miriam Chonya has told her electorate that they have lost nothing by not attending the National Dialogue Forum.

Addressing the media at her office yesterday Chonya said whatever has been discussed during the forum will eventually be presented to parliament for enactment where her contributions would be of significance.

Chonya said her decision not to participate in the NDF would give her an opportunity to critically look at the recommendations and ascertain whether they were in the best interest of Zambians.

Recently, women and youths in Kafue district passed a vote of no confidence in Chonya saying she had failed to deliver her campaign promises.

Hundreds of women matched to district commissioner’s office with a petition demanding that she resigns within 48 hours as she had allegedly failed to foster development in the constituency.

Patricia Banda, who read the statement on behalf of the group, cited the withdrawal of her participation from the National Dialogue Forum without consulting them.
