MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakacinda has said that information vaccum between the ruling Government and the citizens is providing ammunition to the opposition to spread falsehoods about the country’s current political situation.

And Mr Nakacinda says the rule of law should be applicable to all citizens regardless of their position in society.

He said the call to have UPND leader released unconditionally was misplaced as the law should be followed to the later without exclusions.

He added that the HH case puts to the test the belief in the rule of law by both the PF and the UPND.

He said the rule of law should encompass all citizens hence the country should not be seen to tolerate impunity from anyone.

Speaking when he featured on Joy FM’s The Platform radio program on Thursday morning Mr Nakacinda said information gap between the Government and citizens has led to speculations on important national issues.

He urged the Presidency to ensure that it communicates effectively through the holding of regular Presidential press conferences and that Government through the spokesperson should also be clear on the way it communicates to the public.

He said it is the ineffectiveness of those in government and the ruling party which is leading to people treading on emotions as opposed to dealing with the real issues on the ground.

Mr Nakacinda said the Chief Government spokesperson should help the nation by explaining, informing and providing answers to the people on matters relating to the governance of the country while the Secretary General of the ruling party should clearly also be able to defend the Government.

He added that misconceptions will continue as long as the government and the ruling party do not provide clear explanations and provide answers to issues on the ground.

And Mr Nakacinda said the people saying the country has become a dictatorship are saying so to advance their personal ambitions at the expense of Zambians.

He said such people are not patriotic to the nation and not fit to be leaders because good leaders should put the people first.

On the judiciary, the MMD CEO lamented the lack of trust and support saying the judiciary is suffering because the opposition has turnished the image of the institution.

He said the Judiciary is not run by zombies who just sit and take orders from State House but that it is run by qualified individuals who have been appointed on merit.

He urged Zambians not to put in office a party that has continued to disregard institutions of governance such as the judiciary with their belief that the executive interferes with other arms of governance because they would go into office believing that they should do the same.

On the divisions in the church on the governance of the country, Mr Nakacinda regretted that the church which is supposed to be non partisan had multiple voices on a single issue.

He said the Church is a parent which should have a uniform voice on issues affecting the country and that it should exhaust all channels of consultation before communicating their view and position.

Mr Nakacinda also said UPND lawyers were causing anxieties in the country due to their failure to advise their clients on clear matters.

He said the UPND lawyers were so rigid on issues that they do not take advise from anyone.

  1. I can’t remember the last time I heard of MMD. Didn’t know it still exists. I know it’s still a registered party, but I mean in term of relevance to the political landscape. The pronouncements by the National Secretary sounds like opinions that someone on the street would give. He doesn’t appear to speak from a policy standpoint.

    • @Lombe: you seem to have switched off your memory. MMD has seats in parliament, 4 if I am not mistaken. Because he has spoken about issues that are contrary to you and upnd’s beliefs, he is bad. You are becoming monotonous and ineffective in your approach; People are increasingly seeing you guys as psychiatric cases as they go on with their everyday lives!!

    • NAKACHINDA IS SPOT-ON. JOURNALISM IN ZAMBIA LONG CEASED TO INFORMATIVE NEWS. THERE’S SIMPLY NO PROFESSIONALISM IN ZAMBIA’S JOURNALISM, NOWADAYS. EVEN BASICS IN JOURNALISM CANNOT BE FOLLOWED LET ALONE PROVIDE INFORMATIVE NEWS TO THE NATION. I AM MAINLY FORCED TO READ ZAMBIAN NEWSPAPERS BECAUSE I WANT TO AT LEAST READ SOMETHING ABOUT MY COUNTRY AND WITH THE HOPE THAT ONE SOMEONE WILL DECIDE TO GIVE THE READERSHIP QUALITY AND FULL INFORMATION.

  2. Nakachindas MMD is a branch or department of PF. He must be ashamed of himself, he is just a heap of flesh, causing anxiety in Zambia.

  3. MR Nakachindas as you state the rule of law must be followed and that our judiciary are intelligent and follow the law. So please tell me how a candidate can be sworn is the president of Zambia by a ckerk of courts when our Constitution is specific that ONLY the chief justice or the deputy chief justice are the only officials authorised to perform that function. There is no provision for delegation of authority to a lower ranking official
    I look forward to your response.

  4. Is Nakacinda a man of integrity? He is entitled to his opinion just like as others who hold opposite views . MMD is not relevant at the moment. Some parties are simply need to make noise as a way of listening to many voices. Will MMD form Government. Not at all

  6. Govt has no data to share with its citizens that is why there are no press conferences. If we were making progress, there should have been a lot of exciting news to share talking of unprecedented development. Press conferences ended in MMD era. Nakacinda should analyse and see who is telling lies. If there is nothing to hide or if you want to dispel falsehoods, then interview people and show evidence of your truth on TV
