It is sad and shameful how ignorant some people are. This impeachment is not targeting the PF neither is it in the interest of the UPND, but in the interest of protecting the constitution from those that abrogate it. Impeachment is mostly fostered by the legislature to keep in check the Executive and their unlawful acts. The legislature is not the UPND or PF only, no, it comprise Independent MPs, PF and UPND MPs, as well as MPs from other political parties. So this pool of MPs functioning as one of the arm of government collectively referred to as legislature have a constitutional right to impeach the president if he abrogates the constitution. All what we need to look at are the grounds for impeachment- did the president violated the constitution when he refused to hand over instrument of power when the petition of election outcome was lodged in? We need to raise the levels of our debate and begin to look at things with sober minds. We can no longer continue massaging irregularities in the name of die hard members. We ought, at least once, realise that allegiance must be paid to people that sent you there. i rest my case.
