THE Patriotic Front (PF) has called for the resignation of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) executive for not giving guidance on the eligibility of President Lungu’s candidature in the 2021 general elections.

PF Lusaka youth chairperson Kennedy Kamba said the youth are not happy with the continued silence of the Linda Kasonde-led executive over the eligibility of President Lungu’s candidature which is an important national matter.

Mr Kamba said in an interview yesterday that the role of LAZ is to give direction on various legal issues, but that they have not done so.

“They know that the constitution allows President Lungu to contest elections in 2021, hence their silence on this matter,” he said.

He accused some LAZ officials of being politically-inclined, hence their failure to comment on President Lungu’s eligibility.

“It is better that another executive is put in place so that it can work according to people’s expectations,” Mr Kamba said.

When contacted for a comment, LAZ president Linda Kasonde refused to comment on the matter.

  1. This PF youths just what do they think of themselves if one may ask. They seem to comment on everything and seem to be the spokes organisation for PF. Can the mother body of PF please advise these boys to zip up.

    • MR KAMBA LAZ CAN NOT COMMENT ON THIS ISSUE UNTIL THE CASE OF THE PETITION HAS BEEN COMPLETELY ADDRESSED BY THE COURTS. IF LAZ MADE AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT THEY WOULD BE UNDERMINING THE AUTHORITY OF THE COURTS.

    • Kamba is so shallow…………and if LAZ says he’s not eligible? I am PF, but if Lungu stands in 2021 he’ll lose.

    • Ba Kamba of PF youths mwaba shani kanshi? When LAZ comments and it turns out that its not agreeing with you, you cry foul and accuse LAZ of siding with the opposition! Now LAZ is quiet probably digesting the ongoing debate you want them to comment! Didn’t your Lungu say you go to the Constitutional Court for clarity?

    • This is sheer idyotcy. LAZ cannot spend all their time chasing after PF’s madness. This issue is PF’s own making and should not drive other organisations’ agendas and work programs. In any case 2021 is still so far away. Why is PF panicking so soon after rigging the last elections?

    • Its not LAZ’s job. Find out on your own and advise your president. Don’t you have lawyers in your movement?

    • LAZ showing maturity and common sense.

      PF “youths” being childish and trying to divert attention from their “leaders” stolen elections, corruption and failures.

      Well done LAZ!

  4. PF youths are usually drunk. That’s why they do not give credible statements. LAZ is an institution of learned lawyers, not noise makers like kamba himself. If a position contrary to PF was given, LAZ will receive insults like hell. Let LAZ alone.

  5. “They know that the constitution allows President Lungu to contest elections in 2021, hence their silence on this matter” If you know what they know why do you want them to speak? When they speak you condemn when they are silent you condemn. Please focus on what you know best being a cadre for a party if you feeling legalistic go and read the law then come and tell us. Most of the legal fraternity have earned their keep they have not been pandering political nonsense….so good luck and nice to see amukapolishie grinning like a hungry chimbwi

  7. LAZ is more credible institution than the judiciary. It has maintained professionalism thus far. I hope they will not be intimidated by these PF devils. The most important thing is being right and not just pleasing people or always siding with those in power.

  8. i am offering my free services to draft job descriptions for PF youth wing. looks like they don’t know their role in governance & politics. should LAZ speak out and it turns out to be against them, they will surely want Linda’s kidney. what sort of people are in this set called PF youths? Instead of fighting LAZ, please direct your energies on attacking your SG because he has brought the name of the party into disrepute

  10. Look at those faces!!!! I surely don’t understand myself and my fellow Zambians. Are those the faces we have entrusted our lives and sovereignty to? It is no wonder in America and UK shady looking people cannot make it in politics. A face tells you a lot. These people look like petty criminals.. door mat stealers. Ala ichintu bacimwena pa menso..what you see is what you get.
