Statement On The Attack On NDC’s Chishimba Kambwili

Zambian DNA condemns the attack on NDC’s Chishimba Kambwili during a live Radio programme recently in Kabwe.

Zambia has no place and space for thuggery and political violence as it is a democracy that guarantees both the freedom of expression and the media.

However, freedom of expression and media should not be abused by violating the rights of others as it is the case with Kambwili who always insults or uses vulgar language when referring to the Republican President Edgar Lungu.

The attack on Kambwili was self-inflicted because of his habitual provocative and inflammatory language directed at the Head of State.

We advise Kambwili to tone down and refrain from using vulgar language on public fora, and instead concentrate on sharing his vision for the country with the Zambian people.
