PRESIDENT Michael Sata this morning wondered why certain sections of society were desperate for a new constitution when the country has held six general elections using the current constitution.

Speaking after swearing in Dr. Bwalya Ng'andu transport, communication, works and supply permanent secretary at State House as , President Sata wondered which constitution people were desperate for when the country already had one.

"Go and tell them that you took oath under the constitution. We have a constitution and we have had six elections over this constitution so the people who are talking of the constitution, we don't know about it. Probably Ms Rosewin Wandi Anti-Corruption Commission director general knows something about the constitution….and you are going to uphold the constitution," President Sata said.

And President Sata has urged newly appointed permanent secretary Dr. Ng'andu to concentrate on revamping Zambia Railways Limited (ZRL) and TAZARA.

Dr.Ngandu, until Monday was Bank of Zambia (BOZ)deputy Governor, replaces two Permanent Secretaries in the ministry of Works and Supply Bernard Chiwala and Charity Kaande-Ngoma who were fired by Sata on Monday.
Sata also swapped Ministry of Health permanent secretary Dr Peter Mwaba with his Home affairs counterpart Dr Misheck Chikamata.
