Political analyst Chris Zimba has charged that the Judiciary has contributed to heightening the political tension in the country by the delaying to resolve the political impasse arising from last year’s elections. Zimba says it is unfortunate that six months after the elections, the United Party for National Development (UPND) has refused to recognize President Edgar Lungu. He says it is important that the Court expedite hearing the UPND petition case before the High Court to help bring about political stability in the country.

The ruling PF has dismissed as unrealistic suggestions that Zambia is at the verge of having a genocide. PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya says it is not possible for a Christian nation like Zambia to have genocide as the opposition UPND wants people to fear. Bwalya has wondered how possibly a genocide can occur when it has never been a Zambian spirit for people to kill each other based on ethnicity. Bwalya notes that history confirms it that even at a time when there was a one party state in Zambia none of the over 70 tribes turned against each other. Bwalya says the ruling PF does not therefore think that six years of its being in power Zambians can turn against each other in a mass killing because they do not like President Edgar Lungu. He says this is particularly that what has been achieved in the last six years the PF has been in power is already being compared to what has been achieved by all previous governments. Bwalya says as far as he believes a genocide can never therefore occur even if another political party came to power after the ruling PF.
