It was targeted at dad – Kaweche

NOMSA NKANA, Lusaka
FORMER President Kenneth Kaunda’s son, Kaweche, has commended President Lungu for the removal of the clause in the Constitution on indigenous parentage, saying that the previous clause was meant to bar his father from standing as president.
In the former Constitution, the clause, under article 100, stated that a person qualifies to be nominated as a candidate for election as a President if that person (a) was a citizen by birth or descent (b) has been ordinarily resident in Zambia, among other qualifications.
Speaking in an interview, Mr Kaunda said the removal of the clause is long overdue, adding that it is unfair to have a clause based on an individual.
“We all know how that clause came about. The motive behind it was to bar my father,” he said.
