Government shouldn’t use POA to suppress opposition – Mpombo

Headlines Government shouldn't use POA to suppress opposition – Mpombo

People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president George Mpombo has noted the need for government to create a leveled playing field for all political parties ahead the 2016 general election.

Dr. Mpombo hopes that government will not use the Public Order Act (POA) to suppress political activities of opposition political parties during the period leading the elections.

He has cautioned government to be mindful that for any election to be considered free and fair, the period leading to the election matters most.

He says this means that stakeholders will be on the lookout to see how government will create a level playing field for all political players ahead of the elections.

In an interview with Qfm News, Dr. Mpombo has also noted the need for all political parties to rally against political violence during this period.

Dr. Mpombo states that political violence undermines political credibility of a Country and its democratic benchmarks.

He says it is therefore expected that all political activities in the run up to the 2016 general election will be issue based.

  1. This jail-bird is really struggling to make himself relevant on the country’s political scene. Who in their right senses would waste a ballot paper to vote for this guy; I wonder?

    • @Muana Tembo: Who are you to judge Mpombo harshly!! He has been a Minister, Governor, Diplomat, etc BUT you are just pauper wholly dependent or a struggling distant Auntie earning a living by selling Vinkubala at Soweto market! Just shut your Arse – youre a sick fella!!

    • @Change
      I agree with you. No statement from Mpombo is complete without a bombastic word! Maybe they press rushed to issue it.

  2. i rushed to open an article cos. its mpombo who was interviewed alas journalist used their own words to express his meaning , please re write the article we want word by word what the great man said

  3. I have no respect for this buffon. Why talk about the POA now that PF didn’t reward him after campaigning heavily for them in masaiti. Njala ya munyokola
