National Revolution Party (NRP) Secretary General Kelly Walubita junior says it is wrong for the president to only react after pressure.
Mr Walubita noted that if public pressure was not applied, the former health deputy Minister was going to go scot free.
He said as much as the arrest of Dr. Musonda is welcome, the action was not timely.
Mr Walubita pointed out that it is evident that President Banda was trying to shield the former Health deputy Minister.
He added that the president was supposed to take action within 24 hours of the crime.
President Rupiah Banda last week relieved Health Deputy Minister Solomon Musonda of his duties.
This decision comes after the President received a report from the Director of Public Prosecution recommending for the prosecution of Dr. Musonda following a shooting incident in his constituency
