Mrs. Nalumango has also urged members of parliament to be innovative and use technology to solve the social and economic challenges Zambians are facing.

“The National assembly has changed overtime and technology should be as a simpler tool to interact with constituents,” said Mrs. Nalumango.

Speaking at the same event, Speaker of the National assembly Nelly Mutti said that the 100 years celebration underscores the important role democracy plays in Zambia.

Ms. Mutti said that the national assembly will remain a central institution where laws are passed and leaders held accountable.

And Ms. Mutti announced that the date May 23, effective next year, will be celebrated as parliament day in all parliamentary offices countrywide, where members of the public will be allowed to participate and interact with lawmakers.
