Transparency International Zambia (TIZ) has implored all political parties and their members to prioritise and embrace peace rather than causing chaos across the country.

TIZ Information Officer Charles Chulu appealed to all political parties and their members to take the first step in stopping violent activities in the run-up to elections.

Mr. Chulu urged the police to realise that they have a huge task of helping to root out the scourge of violence perpetrated by politicians and their cadres especially this year of general elections.

“Zambia police as the body legally mandated to enforce the law should do so sternly but impartially because there have been worrying reports insinuating that the police are selectively applying law on cadres from different camps,” he said.

Mr. Chulu has since called on all stakeholders in charge of discharging security services to uphold the highest standards of professionalism as they maintain law, peace and order in the country.

Recently, Zambia recorded increased cases of political violence being caused by supporters of various political parties.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Church Prelates are meeting various political party leaders to find lasting solutions to partisan violence.

  1. TIZ knows that violence is being engineered by PF. The IG and his police are toothless and can’t do anything. PF cadres even look more fit than the hungry policemen. Kanganja is the worst IG Zambia have ever had.
