opposition mmd has bowed down to pressure from various stakeholders to have the abuse of office clause reinstated urging its members of parliament to put people`s wishes first.
mmd deputy national secretary chembe nyangu has told radio phoenix in an interview that even though him self was not a member of parliament when the clause was removed from the acc act, it is cardinal that people’s wishes currently are taken into consideration for the benefit of all zambians.
mr. nyangu has stated that it will depend on how mmd members of parliament will respond to the motion once it is tabled in parliament but it is important that they put people’s wishes first in their quest to fight corruption.
mr. nyangu further says his party will support the ruling patriotic front on any move of changing the law for as long as it is aimed at benefitting all zambians and not a single party.
meanwhile mr nyangu has urged government to concentrate on delivering development to people as promised during the campaigns instead of spending most of the time and resources on election petitions in a bid to gain parliamentary control.
