Republican President Edgar Lungu has been called upon to consider retiring Information and Broadcasting Service Minister Chishimba Kambwili in national interest.
And Mr. Kambwili has been advised to be careful with statements he issues though the media saying some of them are dangerous for Zambians.
Assegai Foundation for Civil Advocacy Executive Director Senzo Mkwananzi says the recent threats on Copperbelt University (CBU) Lecturers and ZNBC workers were out of order.
Mr. Mkwananzi says Mr. Kambwili as a former Labour Minister should know by now that workers have a right to protest, as long as they do it peacefully.
He says Mr. Kambwili must not make the work of these hardworking workers difficult by issuing out threats saying they have the right to demand for better services.
He adds that the government should desist from issuing threats on workers instead find a lasting solution to all challenges affecting the workers.
Mr. Mkwananzi notes that the workers in Zambia, especially the media fraternity have never been free from the time Mr. Kambwili was given that position.
He says it is for this reason his organization feels that President Lungu should consider firing Mr. Kambwili saying he does not add any value to the country.
