Public Order Act not supposed to suppress freedoms -German Envoy

German Ambassador to Zambia Bernd Finke has observed that in a democracy, legislation such as the Public Order Act is not supposed to restrict freedom of expression.

Mr. Finke believes the opposition political parties and civil society organizations are supposed to be free to express their opinion on issues.

He has told Qfm News that it is for this reason that he has had open dialogue with the Zambian government and opposition political parties on the implementation of the Public Order Act.
