Lovemore Kanyama, the former Siavonga district commissioner, has advised stakeholders to refrain from hate speech as they express their views on social media.
“The abuse of democracy and freedom of speech is worrying and a danger to the development of the country,” Kanyama observed in statement on Saturday.
He pleaded with the church not to take sides as they give counsel to the party in government, bearing in mind that members belonged to different political parties, hence their stance on government should be neutral.
Kanyama further encouraged Zambians who have turned public commentators through social media to be always positive and productive on their checks and balances and avoid the disrespecting our leaders .
He claimed that some posts on social media were very offensive and provocative as he called upon the government to bring sanity to the country .
