ZAMBIANS must desist from demeaning key institutions such as the Presidency, Judiciary and Parliament and any individuals breaking the law with impunity should face the wrath of the law, Gallant Youth in Zambia (GYZ) executive director Henry Mulenga has charged.

Mr Mulenga said the judiciary should be given sufficient constitutional powers to enforce decision made by itself against any individual and organisations including political parties and interpret the laws without fear nor favour.

He noted that the opposition UPND was under siege by a clique among themselves who were thirsty for power and therefore, have continued to mislead others.

Mr Mulenga advised Zambians to desist from belittling key institutions such as the Presidency, Judiciary and Parliament, but instead they must focus on issues of development.

He said everyone was subject to the laws that govern the country and that no one was above the law.

Mr Mulenga said it made one think that the more reason why some top leaders in the UPND refused to go for the party convention as required by their party constitution was for fear of being exposed, thereby paying artificial loyalty to their leader Hakainde Hichilema.

He alleged that those who were advising the UPND leaders were actually misleading them because some of its top leadership had their personal interests on the position.

“There is one politically correct question that we need to ask ourselves as Zambians: Why has UPND failed to fill the position left by Dr. Canisius Banda-vice president for politics despite having all the brains in the UPND?” he asked.

He said the UPND had continued to mislead the nation that their leader would soon be installed republican President to divert people from real issues, saying such would reserve Zambia’s democratic strides that she had gained.
