Rights activist Brebner Changala says the call to repeal the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) Act by Patriotic Front Kasama Member of Parliament Kelvin Sampa is not in good faith. Sampa has put a notice of motion to repeal CAP 31 of the Zambian Constitution so that LAZ is no longer the only body that presides over matters for lawyers in the country. The call has been instigated by claims that LAZ has become an extension of the opposition United Party for National Development and also the cartel comprising former Post Newspapers editor Fred M’membe and his acolytes. Changala said that the move to dissolve LAZ was in self interest by the ruling PF that wanted to kill off any opposing views in the country. “The attempt by the PF government or the PF as a party will not be allowed, whether legally or by use of underhand methods,†Changala said. “I urge them not to use the arrogance of numbers to repeal the LAZ Act.†Sampa has moved a private member’s motion that seeks to dissolve the LAZ.

The murder of Zambia Air Force flight sergeant Nchimunya Choongwa has attracted an inter-ministerial defence inquiry. Choongwa was over the weekend murdered at the hands of police officers whilst in detention at Woodlands Police station. The deceased alleged picked up a quarrel with a police officer after he bumped into his (police officer) car at a night spot in Woodlands whilst pulling out. Whilst attempting to resolve the matter, the yet to be identified police officer mobilized his colleagues at Woodlands Police station who bundled the ZAF office to the police station and allegedly beat him up before dumping him in the police cell where he died from excessive bleeding. An inquiry has been opened with Defence Minister Davies Chama and his Home Affairs counterpart Stephen Kampyongo holding a joint briefing to launch an inquiry. Chama said that there would be no sacred cows in the matter with the relatives and nation made aware of the outcome. So far the police attempt to lump the murder on the inmates has backfired in the light of fresh information that alleges that it was the law enforcement officers that brutally murdered the deceased ZAF officer.

[Daily Maverick] With a focus on the "security and authority of the state", the ANC's peace and stability policy discussion document proposes revamping Home Affairs from a "misunderstood administrative department" into one "fully integrated into the security cluster". But the proposition of the department being able to sell personal information to raise its own funds is just one example of the contradictory policy approaches of the governing ANC: asserting its prerogative to govern, but then outsourcing key functions.
