The Zambian Voice, an organization which promotes good governance, has expressed concern with a number of issues bordering on malicious propaganda being perpetuated by different groups.
Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says the propaganda being perpetrated has the potential of promoting hatred in the country thereby making it difficult for elected leaders to rule.
Mr. Tayali says his organisation has realized that while Zambians voted for one president, the country is being steered in different directions by various groupings with ulterior motives.
He says these groups are fighting for political power and control of the country using malice, criticism, state machinery and intimidation.
He noted in a statement to ZANIS today that an impression that was being created was that one must belong to some groupings to enjoy life as a free citizen or risk being labelled as a rebel if the activities of that grouping are questioned.
Mr. Tayali has further expressed concern that the prevailing situation was a recipe for bad governance, corruption and inequality.
He has since urged Zambians to seriously reflect on any statements coming from various groupings to avoid being misled.
Mr. Tayali has since urged President Edgar Lungu to clearly define his identity and values of his governance style.
He has further appealed to the judiciary to be impartial as the unscrupulous people would want to use them to legitimize wrong things.
He said justice should not have a face as courts are places where people, regardless of their status in society, run to for justice.
