Fr Lungu says it is saddening to note that the Committee has failed to avail the people of Zambia with the final opportunity to validate their input in the process.
He says the shortcoming in time could have been a foreseen challenge had the process been premised on a clearly laid down roadmap.
He adds that it would be a serious error for the document to be handed only to the Republican President, stating that it is only just and fair that the document lands in the hands of the Public who are the rightful custodians, the Republican President and Parliament at the same time.
Fr Lungu says the Oasis Forum is earnestly appealing to the Patriotic Front government, members of the Drafting Committee and the Minister of Justice to exhibit genuine patriotism by adhering to principles of constitutionalism.
Fr Lungu states that it is not too late to institute a process of legally protecting the on-going constitution making process, stating that this request is in the interest of all well-meaning Zambians
