Press Statement

We should not look at ChaCha as the magic wand that will solve our country’s problems. We are still struggling to implement our laws as they are, what makes them think that when a new set of laws under a new constitution is put in place, these new laws will then be effectively and fully implemented? Even under a new constitution it will still be political will and genuine leadership that will ensure that the laws are implemented in full. Changing our constitution does not guarantee anything.

In the end, what we need is determined and effective leadership that will vigorously implement our laws in full without fear or favor.
