need for constitution in this era

 You have spoked Chambi,
we real need a new constitution given diverse challenges we face now.
"A constitution is not simply a legal, technical document. It is primarily a political document. For it to have political legitimacy and deserve the obedience and loyalty of both the rulers and the ruled, it must embody the national consensus at the particular time...Constitutions which do not embody a national consensus do not command political legitimacy. They are more or less imposed and no one cares about them - neither the rulers nor the ruled " - A Constitution Lawyer on 'Let the People Speak: Tanzania Down the Road to Neo-Liberalism'
