Zambia: Elections are not won through fights - Clergy

[By Peter Adamu] The Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) has reminded political parties that elections are not won through physical fights and intimidation of opponents.

EFZ Executive Director Pukuta Mwanza says political parties taking part in the August general election should also know that none of them owns the Zambian people.

Reverend Mwanza states that this means that it is the right of every Zambia to listen to any campaign message and later make the decision on which political party to vote for.

He says preventing another political party from campaigning is unfair and an act of interference of the democratic rights of such a party.

Reverend Mwanza says the church's appeal to all political parties is to desist from violence and from distributing alcoholic drinks during their campaign rallies.
