The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) says it will now take Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) President Linda Kasonde as a political opponent.
PF Secretary General Davies Mwila has told Journalists in Lusaka that because of Ms Kasonde’s interest in politics, the ruling party has no option but to treat her as a political enemy.
Mr. Mwila says it is very clear that the LAZ President has been supporting the opposition UPND and that is the more reason the party will now treat her as an opponent in politics.
He says the judiciary should also be criticized when it makes certain decisions just like the Presidency in Zambia is criticized.
He says the PF has on several occasions assured the nation that it will not interfere in the operations of the judiciary but that when it does something wrong the party and stakeholders are free to criticize.
Meanwhile, the PF Secretary General has signed in the book of condolences at the Cuban Embassy in Zambia expressing his condolences to the people of Cuba over the death of former Leader Fidel Castro.
Mr. Mwila has described the late former Cuba Commander in Chief as a passionate, courageous and fearless leader.
And Cuban Ambassador to Zambia and Malawi Caridad Gonzalez says the Cuban people are grateful to the people of Zambia for the support and comfort during this moment of grief.
