Mundubile predicts UPND lawlessness

LEADER of the Opposition in Parliament Brian Mundubile has said Zambians must be mindful of trends
of total lawlessness being exhibited by the UPND administration between 2023 and 2026.
Mr. Mundubile, who is also PF Presidential aspirant, said that there was total disregard for the rule of
law as can be seen in decisions being made in the governance process in the recent past.
He said that the New Dawn Government recently announced plans to dispose of the Gulf Stream
Presidential Jet and shares in Kansanshi Mine.
He said the law was clear on the disposal of State assets under Article 210 which demanded that the
decision to sell State assets must be supported by a two thirds majority vote in Parliament.
“But these two transactions were carried out without the approval of Parliament,” he said.
Mr. Mundubile added that Government recently contracted private auditors to audit Defence and
Intelligence Agencies, a move that was against the law.
“Not to talk about prolonged detention of political opponents in police custody and many other places.
So clearly, when you talk about fidelity to the law and when the people that should ordinarily implement
the law are the ones seen to be breaking the law that is total lawlessness,” he said.
