We Will Abolish Cyber Law, Insists HH

United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema insists that once he is elected President of the Republic of Zambia, he will make sure that the cyber security law is revoked.

And Mr Hichilema says he has never seen this kind of suffering the Zambian people are going since Zambia attained Independence.


According to Mr. Hichilema, there is nothing like cyber crime, alleging that the PF pushed for the Cyber Law to achieve their political aspirations, arguing that it is not in the interest of the country.


Mr. Hichilema regrets that the law is taking Zambia back to the days of the brutal colonial regime.


The UPND president adds that the law is detrimental as it is an affront to the right of privacy the Zambian people have continued to enjoy since the country attained political independence in 1964.


President Edgar Lungu assented to the Cyber Security Bill on Tuesday last week.

According to the Zambian leader, the law is aimed at protecting Zambians, including those opposing it like Mr. Hichilema from being buried on internet.
