The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has noted with great concern the continued use of the Police service as a tool of political oppression and stifling divergent views.

LAZ President Linda Kasonde says it is also sad to see youths take to the streets to fight each other in the name of politics.

Ms. Kasonde says political violence should end now.

She says the country is experiencing levels of political intolerance and violence that threaten the existence of the country’s record as a beacon of peace on the continent and the world.

The LAZ President said this in a speech read on her behalf by her Vice Eddie Mwiitwa after a march past in Lusaka organized by the association under the theme ‘Peace and Unity in Diversity’.

Speaking at the same event, Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) formerly Zambia Episcope Conference (ZEC) Deputy Secretary General Father Justin Matipa says today’s March for peace shows how stakeholders in the country are crying to politicians to restore peace in the country.

And Council of Churches in Zambia (CCZ) Board Member Bishop Peter Mulenga has called on political party leaders to uphold Christian values of embracing one another and embracing peace in national interest knowing that Zambia is bigger than any political party.


    • And you have become the mouth piece for the opposition UPND. how much are u being paid when you meet in the dark corners? you are an embarrassment to the proffesional body.

  1. The ZP reports to the Commander-in-Chief who happens to be ECL. ZP has been ordered to brutalise opposition supporters and they are doing just that. Its possible to stop violence in Zambia if Lungu so desires. Lungu is using the bible, the gun and violence to rig these rig these elections. Most of the violence in Zambia today is carried out by PF thugs ordered ,financed ,armed and deployed by Chakolwa. That is the source and the cause of the problem b4 us in Zambia. The solution lies in discarding the cause of the problem. Forward with HH,GBM & UPND.

  2. The classic is when ECZ asks political leaders to sign peace accords when the same political leaders are so weak that their cadres don’t even listen to them when they say stop the violence. Political caders must have instead signed the peace accords.You are a commander in chief and your cadres don’t even listen to you.
