NDC To Push For Access To Information Bill

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Party Secretary General Mwenya Musenge says the his party is eager to see how the long awaited Access to Information (ATI) Bill will be debated now that Parliament has resumed sitting.

Musenge said the ATI bill is critical not only to the growth and promotion of the media industry in the country but to preserve democracy and good governance.

He has expressed hope that once the bill is enacted it will assist in fighting corruption in the country.

Musenge says the NDC is also looking forward to see how parliamentarians will debate issues surrounding the alleged abrogation and violation of the Republican constitution by President Edgar Lungu.

He charges that President Lungu has failed to defend and protect the aspiration of the nation citing the blocking of opposition political parties from holding public gatherings among other issues.
