It’s difficult to understand PF’s intolerance of LAZ – AndyfordBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 26 Jul 2017
People’s Alliance for Change (PAC) president Andyford Banda says it is difficult to understand why those in the PF government react sharply whenever the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) issues a statement.
In an interview with News Diggers today, Banda accused the ruling party of being allergic to criticism.
“The Law Association of Zambia were very correct and they were very objective but most PF members where over reacting to that statement. I personally read the LAZ statement, I also read the full statement from the minister of information. I don’t understand why people would want to react like that. The point is that the PF are allergic to the views that they think are against them, they just want views that praises them,” Banda said.
“Anything that does not praise them, they are against it, they are against divergent views and that is the reason why they were reacting like that. I don’t know why this government over reacts when LAZ issues a statement.”
And Banda observed that there was already a lot of abuse of powers by the police during the Threatened State of Emergency.
“We have heard of a few reports of abuse of power by the police, they are not following the guidelines. We still believe that this situation could have been handled in another way as opposed to invoking Article 31. The apprehension is not just coming from the Zambian people but even the international community. They have also expressed concern with a number of happenings in Zambia. The truth of the matter is that all those things are politically motivated. I think there is no secret at the moment,” said Banda.
