THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has said that the establishment of a Constitutional Court has enhanced the protection of human rights in Zambia.

LAZ president Linda Kasonde said that establishment of the Constitutional Court was a positive move towards the protection of human rights.
Ms Kasonde challenged the new court to provide more interpretation on some of the contentious matters that were contained in the amended Constitution.
She said the establishment of the Constitutional Court was significant in providing checks and balances on public affairs and enabling the masses to firmly understand some contentious matters.
“Zambia is a democratic nation where people should participate in the electoral process. So the establishment of this Constitutional Court is important in helping to make certain key decisions,” she said.
Ms Kasonde was speaking when she featured on the Assignment programme on Muvi Television on Sunday evening.
She, however, said no country had a perfect Constitution and that the only remedy was to have a people-driven document that would allow participation of all citizens.
On political violence, Ms Kasonde said the vice should be condemned as it was detrimental to the flourishing of democracy.
LAZ has joined several stakeholders in condemning violence and disorderly conduct associated with political activities ahead of the August 11 general election.
