ZAMBIA'S HRC EXPRESS CONCERN AT THE STATE OF CONDITION THE TREASON CHARGED ARE LIVING IN.

HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION CHAIRPERSON (HRC) PIXIE YANGAILO SAYS THE SILENCE OF THE COMMISSIONER ON THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE TREASON CHARGED FOR PROTESTING IN RELATION TO THE 1964 BAROTSE AGREEMENT IN WESTERN PROVINCE WHO ARE CURRENTLY DETAINED IN MUMBWA DOES NOT MEAN THE COMMISSION IS NOT CONCERNED.
SPEAKING IN AN INTERVIEW WITH RADIO PHOENIX MRS. YANGAILO SAYS THE COMMISSION HAS BEEN MAKING FRANTIC EFFORTS TO ENSURE THAT THE INCARCERATED INDIVIDUALS ARE NOT KEPT IN POOR AND BAD CONDITIONS OR MISTREATED.
MRS YANGALILO SAID THE COMMISSION OFFICIALS HAS BEEN VISITING INCARCERATED INDIVIDUALS FROM TIME TO TIME TO CHECK ON HOW THEY ARE AND THEIR LIVING CONDITION.
SHE HAS POINTED OUT THE COMMISSION HAS BEEN AVOIDING TO COMMENT OVER THE MATTER BECAUSE IT IS IN THE COURTS OF LAW AND IS HOWEVER WAITING FOR MATTER TO BE CONCLUDED.
THE HRC CHAIRPERSON SAYS AT THE MOMENT THE COMMISSION IS ENGAGING VARIOUS INVOLVED STAKEHOLDERS TO FIND THE WAY FORWARD AS ONE WAY TO HELP RESOLVE THE MATTER QUICKLY AND PEACEFULLY.
MRS. YANGAILO HAS POINTED THAT THE EVEN THOUGH THE COMMISSION IS FIGHTING TO ENSURE THAT THE PEOPLE INCARCERATED DO NOT HAVE THEIR RIGHTS TRAMPLED UPON; IT DOES NOT SUPPORT ANY ACT OF VIOLENCE BY ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE OR INDIVIDUALS
