Bill 10’s future bleak
Written by admin on July 21, 2020
GEARS Initiative Zambia says the fate of constitutional amendment bill number 10 of 2019 is in limbo following the outbreak of COVID-19 at the National Assembly.
McDonald Chipenzi, the organization Executive Director says the death of two MPs and admission of some of them to hospital who are key to debating Bill 10 is another big blow to its survival but good for its death as numbers cannot add up in the House.
Mr. Chipenzi says MPs who are apprehensive and debating bill ten will be risky to their lives amidst the ravaging virus.
He says the House must adjourn especially that in March it adjourned on the basis of the coronavirus outbreak.
