A man of the moment

"We should not worry so much about security issues. I think what we should worry about is to fight bureaucracy, that's what we should worry about. But if we want to write a constitution that will envelop 1950s primitivity then we are getting nowhere. I think we should be getting out of this notion that we are writing a constitution for this decade, we are writing a constitution for the future...I come from the old school of politics and I should be defending this bureaucracy, this primitivity, but I'm not. So I am the man of the moment. Those who think that I will be backward are disappointed because I move with time."
Southern Province Minister Daniel Munkombwe explaining why the Government has thrown its weight behind the Dual Citizenship measure. For the first time at the NCC, we are reminded, "a contentious Article received support from the Executive's side, the Opposition, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the church".
