Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has warned that he will not spare any person that will be found insulting the Presidency especially on social media.
He expressed concern that abuse of social media has reached alarming levels resulting in some people insulting the Head of state.
Mr. Kampyongo said the President must be accorded respect by all Zambians including those that have divergent views.
Yesterday President Edgar Lungu cautioned Zambians to be mindful of the law as they criticise his office. The Head of State said Zambians must be mindful of the law as they criticise the Presidency to avoid coming into conflict with the law.
He noted with regret that some people have gone to the extent of insulting his office as they provide checks and balances.
The president has since directed home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo to ensure that there is a boundary between idiocy and normality as he tackles issues relating to abuse of the presidency on social media.
President Lungu said there must be a boundary as people criticise his office which is not being observed by many currently.
