DEFAMATION OF THE PRESIDENT WILL BE SCRAPPED OFF, BUT FOR NOW IT APPLIES – HH

President Hakainde Hichilema says defamation of the President law will be scrapped off eventually but that it applies for now because it is still a law.


He was responding to question from the BBC.

  1. It applies now because it suits you just fine watching poor citizens sent to prison for 2 years just for calling you ugly or backwards.

    Be serious sometimes Hakainde please. It is peoples lives you are destroying.

  2. Am not in support,people are too disrespectful. The current opposition does not befit the absence of ‘defamation of the president’,people should just learn to respect the heard of state, let’s know how to debate issues.

  3. So, this guy is insinuating that HH can arbitrary change the law? Why can’t you wait for Parliament to repeal this archaic law. HH is on the right track, and we support him 100%

  4. These are colonial laws which we are still using in a democracy. if you look at were we got the democracy issue from ( the west ) the DEFAMATION OF THE PRESIDENT law its not even their but us the copy cuts we look at it as a very progressive law.

  5. Imwe the issue is that all the other Presidents used to say they are looking into repealing this archaic law but inside them, they took their time knowing they where beneficiaries. So even the incumbent needs to be pushed. Yes he is a beneficiary now not out of his making but we have this stupid law in our books that all of them are using to silence their opponents. This country belongs to all of us and such laws shld never be in our statutes. Imagine if HH left and a bad person came in? NO NO NO we are not in 1821. REPEAL THIS LAW FAST. WE DO NOT WANT IT. It has been used to misinterpret what someone has said and used to fix opponents…..PF was told to remove it but they thot Political power was permanent. Now they are the one crying..shld the cycle continue? NO
