We in the UPND would like to condemn in the strongest terms the attack on the Law Association or Zambia secretariat last week.
We watched with awe and embarrassment when Patriotic Front (PF) cadres descended on the Secretariat.
We therefore would like to encourage the LAZ under the leadership Ms. Linda Kasonde to continue offering checks on this lawless Government.
For us its not only the attack on the secretariat but the deafening silence from LAZ’s first member who is also PF President Mr. Edgar Lungu.
This shows that the attack was planned and approved by the PF senior leadership and Edgar Lungu himself.
We should all protect LAZ and indeed any other professional body from politicians such as Mr Edgar Lungu.
This is how anarchy starts. When professional institutions become compromised with state sponsored terror.
Who will protect the masses if professional bodies are going to be intimidated?
We say no to this kind of approach to resolving issues.
We all face challenges in life but intimidation is never a solution to settling matters in any civilized society.
UPND SECRETARY GENERAL.
