The present PNC representatives should feel free to change the constitution

Dear Editor,

My letter in your paper with the caption ‘Why can’t the opposition get the benefit of proportional representation in the cabinet?’ published on March 5, 2014 had a confusing sentence in the paragraph before the last.

It said that the PPP had nothing to do with the making of the 1980 Constitution.  It also said that the PNC should not feel guilty about it because it was not their doing.

I intended to say that the present PNC representatives are not guilty of it and should feel free to change it. Those of any party who refuse to change it for the better are walking in the footsteps of the founders.

Yours faithfully,

Eusi Kwayana

There is no place for ‘harmonism’ in the Constitution

Dear Editor, With each passing day, this government is demonstrating, with excruciating clarity, that it is incapable of operating within a constitutional construct in which the Constitution is supreme and where executive power must not only be exercised within the bounds of that Constitution but also that every action of the executive government must comply with and conform to the rule of law.

Occasion for grand acclaim seems hollow

Dear Editor,   I suppose I should have the decency, if not class, to say something, anything.
