The PF’s true colours regarding the introduction of the new constitution are becoming more evident everyday. The latest delaying tactics are nothing short of comical. The statement by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice claiming that the 10 copies of the draft constitution that were submitted to the Ministry have been lost, require one to completely suspend belief. In any normal country such an admission would be immediately followed by a resignation from public office and an apology to the nation.

We are very displeased with the Zambia Police who arrested 42 youths during yesterday’s youth day celebration. It is wrong for the police whose job is to maintain law and order to arrest innocent youths and undress female youths who were only celebrating their day.

PRESS STATEMENT FROM THE NATIONAL RESTORATION PARTY Hoping for a rational response from the Patriotic Front administration over the release of the draft constitution is expecting too much. They seem to have their head buried firmly in the sand not only on this issue but on nearly all the things that one would have thought they would want to do in their own best interests. For example, there is still no official comment from the head of state following the wanton destruction of human life and property and the ongoing threats to public safety by factions within the ruling party fighting one another for dominance in the streets of the capital.

GOOD MORNING LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. IF ANYONE IS IN ANY DOUBT ABOUT THE STATE OF CONFUSION WE FIND OURSELVES LIVING IN AS A NATION TODAY, THEY ONLY NEED TO REFLECT ON WHAT TRANSPIRED AT STATE HOUSE EARLIER THIS WEEK. IN THE SPACE OF LESS THAN 20 MINUTES, WE WERE FORCED TO WITNESS A PUBLIC DRESSING DOWN OF SENIOR GOVERNMENT LEADERS AND CIVIL SERVANTS, A POLICY REVERSAL ON MINERAL EXPORT TAX THAT HAS NO DOUBT COMPLETELY BAFFLED THE MINING COMMUNITY, AND THE RE-ASSIGNMENT OF A TALENTED BUT CLEARLY 'OUT OF FAVOUR' PERMANENT SECRETARY TO HIS SIXTH OFFICIAL POSTING IN LESS THAN 2 YEARS (BEFORE HE WAS RETIRED THE FOLLOWING DAY). ALL THIS MIGHT BE CONSIDERED NORMAL IF THERE WERE NOT SO MANY OTHER THINGS GOING WRONG IN THE COUNTRY.

The decision by the Patriotic Front administration to move the Barotse activists from Mongu to Mwembeshi is wrong and should be reversed. This decision is a double punishment not only for the activists, but also for the relatives and friends of the incarcerated persons who will have to incur additional transport and costs to visit their family members in Mwembeshi.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. We meet this morning to launch the NAREP “Clothes for Change” Initiative. This is a programme aimed at responding to the terrible suffering we witness as we travel across Zambia during our visits to rural communities and other neglected areas. As we share with the nation our commitment to addressing the plight of people living in crippling poverty – particularly the women that toil so hard to make life less unbearable for their families – we cannot ignore the current developments in our politics.

When the Patriotic Front was in opposition, they made numerous promises to the people of Zambia. They managed to woo the people into voting for them and they have been waiting for two years for the promises to be fulfilled but to no avail.

President Michael Sata castigated his ministers for not telling the Zambians what his government had achieved over the two years. He went on to say they were lucky because there was no opposition in Zambia. These statements were attributed to the President during a meeting for PF leaders and cabinet ministers and during the swearing in ceremony for the Ministers of Information and Lands. The aforesaid statements attracted varying responses from stakeholders, including NAREP, outlining the reasons why the ministers had nothing to tell Zambians in its statement of 20th September, 2013.

It is now 2 years behind us since Zambia ushered into office the Patriotic Front administration. Over the 2 years, so much has been said and so little done that one is left wondering- Zambia, where to? On the back of promises that hoodwinked Zambians into believing a paradise was about to be created in Zambia, the PF’s victory sparked historic celebrations across the country as the jobless youths, the disempowered farmers, the retirees and the struggling businessmen and women began the 90 day countdown to the new dawn. It is now 730 days and lo and behold; where are we? Where are we headed to?

We would like to clearly state that as National Restoration Party; we are in support of the salary increment of salaries of civil servants by the Patriotic Front. We commend the government for taking this step as this will better the lives of the Zambian people.

Government should immediately state its clear position on vendors who are slowly moving back onto the streets of Livingstone. It has been barely two weeks since Zambia co-hosted the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) conference in Livingstone. Before the UNWTO was hosted, Tourism and Arts Minster, Honourable Sylvia Masebo announced to the nation that the PF government would ensure that no street vendor would return to the streets of Livingstone.

As National Restoration Party,we do not see any point as to why RTSA should give a short grace period of up to 23 September this year as the deadline for all public service vehicles to have the new colour scheme.

Zambia has at last heard from senior Patriotic Front leadership on the issue of political violence. After several months of violent conduct against Opposition Leaders and other stakeholders in the democratic process, the PF Secretary General, Honourable Winter Kabimba, has finally broken his silence to condemn the violence that has erupted within his own Party and which threatens to speed up the rate of the PF's unpopularity.
