President Edgar Lungu will this morning hold a State of Nation address at 09:00 hours where he will lay ground for the 2018 government program. The Head of State will be holding his second State of the Nation address under the amended constitution. Previously the State of the Nation address has left bitter sweet memories with opposition United Party for National Development Members of Parliament having shunned the event which led the Speaker of the National Assembly to suspend them. In March 2017, convicted UPND Chilanga lawmaker Keith Mukata drew the wrath of his party for being the only MP from his party to attend the State of the Nation address. The UPND lawmakers have toned down their hard line stance on Presidential addresses in the aftermath of the reprimand by the Speaker and will be expected to be in the house. Under Article 86 of the amended Constitution President Lungu is expected to fulfil a constitutional requirement which mandates that the Head of State may address the National Assembly at least twice in every year.

The Young African Leaders Network (YALI) says that Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini should explain while he has declared the Chilanga parliamentary seat despite incumbent Keith Mukata appealing his sentence. Governance advisor Isaac Mwanza said Matibini should explain whether Mukata had already started serving his sentence despite his appeal. Mwanza said that the appeal by Mukata over his death sentence for murder could have frozen out Matibini from declaring the Chilanga seat vacant. He said that YALI wanted the decision reversed until the court process was exhausted. “The Speaker should guide the house, as a former judge (Matibini) he should tell us whether honourable Keith Mukata is already serving his sentence while in detention waiting for his appeal ,†Mwanza said.
