Lungu tells IG to stop political violence

PRESIDENT Lungu has directed the Inspector General of police Kakoma Kanganja to deal decisively with the perpetrators of violence and to do so with impartiality ahead of this year’s general elections.

The Head of State said he had observed that in the recent past the country had been faced with an increase in violence.

“Once again, I direct the Inspector General of Police to deal decisively with the perpetrators of this violence and to do so with impartiality. The police should also ensure that the public order act is administered in a manner that ensures equity and fairness,” he said.

And President Lungu has promised to give Zambians the remaining aspect of the constitution (Bill of Rights) through a referendum this year.

The Head of State this yesterday in his address to the nation on the occasion to mark the close of the year 2015 and to herald the New Year 2016.

President Lungu also reiterated that his administration remained committed to ensuring that it created conditions to support a further rise in copper production, entrench political stability, improve electricity supply and assure investors of a more stable policy environment that would be anchored on the medium term expenditure framework.

President expected the agriculture production to increase progressively in the light of huge investment in rural infrastructure which he (Lungu) tasked the Zambia National Service to rapidly execute.

“Given favourable weather conditions, Zambia is poised to remain food-secure in the co0ming months. We are one of the few countries in the region that still has sufficient cereals to feed our people,” the Head of State said.

He said Zambians today were witnesses to and actively participated in the unprecedented infrastructure development taking place everywhere across the lengths and breadth of Zambia.

On the constitution, the Head of State said he stood proud and ready to sign into law the collective will of the people.

“This is a moment that calls for courage because we are doing things that have been dreaded in the past. That document will revolutionalise our politics in many respects…For the remaining aspect of the constitution, I promised the nation a referendum, and that is what the nation will get once we are ready,” President Lungu said.

President Lungu urged citizens should not relent in continuing to seek the face of god in the New Year as they pursued their ambitious transformational agenda for a smart Zambia now and the vision of becoming a developed country by 2064.

The Head of State said hard work, unity of purpose and prayer were not an option but an imperative to ensure that Zambia succeeds.

 “As political leaders we have a civic duty to ensure that the Zambian people exercise their right to freely express themselves and choose their preferred candidates without fear, intimidation or coercion,” he said.
