Party of National Unity and Progress (PNUP) President Highvie Hamududu has called on political parties to avoid political rallies if they value human life.
Mr Hamududu said if political leaders cared for citizens, they should avoid calling for public rallies and preserve lives in the wake of the third wave of the deadly COVID 19 pandemic.
He said it does not make political sense for political parties to chose to kill the people that they are aspiring to govern.
Mr Hamududu has appealed to authorities to put guidelines in writing so that no political party has an advantage over the other.
He said the Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ) has discouraged political parties from holding political rallies and large gatherings, but has advised political parties to use other methods to send their political messages across.
