PRESIDENT LUNGU’S INTENTIONS TO CURB VIOLENCE RIGHT STEP

Zambian DNA welcomes President Edgar Lungu’s strongest hint that he may be compelled to invoke his Constitutional powers to stop the political violence as the ECZ and the Police have lamentably failed to contain the now escalating levels of political violence in the country ahead of the August 12 polls.

We have also noted with dismay how the Road shows are attracting many people, many of whom don’t even mask up and don’t observe social distancing
making them not different from the public rallies.

In our view, there is need to take a fresh look at the Road shows as they have become a source many conflicts, including political violence and destruction of property in many parts of the country.

Moreover, Zambians want to see the country in peace and not in pieces before, during and after the August 12 polls .

It’s for these reasons we are elated that President Lungu has indicated that if the political violence and destruction by cadres is not halted henceforth, he may be compelled to invoke his Constitutional powers to curb the acts of political violence in the country.
