The Zambian Voice is happy that for the first time a senior public officer of the level of a presidential Aide is being tried in the country’s Courts on criminal charges.
Executive Director Chilufya Tayali says President Edgar Lungu should be commended for allowing his Special assistant for political affairs Kaizer Zulu to be tried in the courts of law.
Mr. Tayali says what President Lungu has done by not shielding Mr. Zulu is what Democracy entails.
He says Zambian Voice is however, against calls that President Lungu suspends or fires Mr. Zulu over the criminal charges he is facing.
Mr. Tayali says his organization is of the view that it will be prejudicial for President Lungu to fire or suspend Mr. Zulu especially now when his case in Court has commenced.
PF youths in Lusaka province have also expressed happiness that President Lungu has allowed Mr. Zulu be tried for threatening violence and failing to take precaution against injury when he discharged his firearm after a bar altercation with Enoch Kavindele Junior.
PF Lusaka Province Youth Information Secretary Stanley Chiumya says President Lungu has proved beyond reasonable doubt that he is not shielding anyone from answering to the law.
Mr. Chiumya has told Qfm News in a separate interview PF youths are in full support of what President Lungu has done not to shield Mr. Zulu.
