Part Two — In Zambia, many rights are not guaranteed in the country’s constitution. An organisation called the Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection (JCTR) funded by Misean Cara, sets out to change this with years of sustained campaigning. JCTR joined with a wide range of civil society groups, known as the Grand Coalition, to make one major push towards getting a Bill of Rights enacted into the constitution. Brian Kenny talks with some of the key groups that campaigned for the hearts and minds of the Zambian people. He also highlights the fake news that some politicians disseminated to the public to curb the success of the campaign, and how the Grand Coalition fought until the end to get the referendum passed.
