LAZ Press Statement Dated 28th June 2017 On The Violence That Characterised The Burial Of The Late Clance Zulu

The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) is deeply saddened by the reports in the media and information circulating on social media on the clash between members of the Patriotic Front (PF) and United Party for National Development (UPND) that happened on Saturday 24 June, 2017 at Leopards Hill Memorial Park during the burial of the late Clance Zulu. LAZ is disheartened that such violent activities took place at the graveyard during a solemn occassion which is supposed to be respected by all, regardless of political affiliation.

Unfortunately, this violence is the latest in a string of worrisome events that evidence high levels or intolerance, disregard for the law and political polarisation in our society.
