The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) says it is disturbed by a narration contained in a political campaign video attributed to the United Party for National Development (UPND) which has been widely shared on social media.

The association says they are also concerned with tribal remarks attributed to a UPND member Buumba Malambo.

LAZ honorary secretary Sokwani Chilembo said in a statement that the Constitution of Zambia, in Article 60(3) (a) and (b) prohibits the practice of tribalism and abhors intimidation.

“This clear prescription is echoed in section 14 and 15 of the electoral process act 2016; the said video offends the provision of the law in that it is both intimidatory and inciteful,” he said.

Mr Chilembo has since called the UPND and other political parties to be mindful of the law for the remainder of the campaign period.

“Similarly, the tribal comments fall foul of the law; political parties should persuade voters without resort to intimidation or reference to tribal comments, which are divisive and detrimental to the country,” he said.

Mr Chilembo said that LAZ has since called on the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) to scrutinize campaign activities of all political parties.

“ECZ should ensure that any political party or individual found wanting should be held accountable as by law provided,” he said
