Parliament Approves Steps To State Of Emergency

Parliament Approves Steps To State Of Emergency

The Patriotic Front(PF) dorminated Parliament has approved the invoking of article 31 of the Constitution of Zambia.

This means that when President Lungu assents to it, the article will give police “enough teeth to bite.”

President Lungu threatened State of Emergency after gutting of public property persisted.

He regretted that the country was slowly sliding to lawlessness.

When the matter was presented before Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Catherine Namugala, all the 85 members present in the august house voted for the motion.

47 UPND MPs remain suspended for not attending President Lungu’s State of the Nation address in parliament  and now must be regretting as they could have opposed the motion that is likely to make the Head of State very unpopular.

    Say Bye to ” DEMOCRACY” and say hi to ” TALIBAN RULE”. If the police do not arrest any of those opposition people they suspect to be behind the fires and find them guilty within this dark period of three months, then it will mean that the same PF planned it all in order to stifle our young democracy. TYRANNY RULE HAS NEVER SUCCEEDED BEFORE. TIME ALWAYS COMES WHEN IT COLLAPSES. ONE CANNOT EAT BREAD FOREVER. REMEMBER JEHOVAH IS WATCHING AND HE WILL ONE DAY REVIEW WHAT IS HIDDEN AND MAKE EVERY OPPRESSOR EAT GRASS.

    Burning public property is not the solution i’m thinking all parliamentarian who supported the motion to allow the president to revoke article 31. Infact what some of us wanted is impose the law if any one found around 21hrs should be picked for questioning these are people burnin markets and others
