‘Chikwanda recording illegal’

THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) says it is a violation of constitutional rights to privately record an individual without their consent.
LAZ president George Chisanga said in a statement that if the recording of Minister of Finance Alexander Chikwanda by a named newspaper is indeed genuine, then it is against the Republican constitution.
“Under our Republican Constitution, all individuals are entitled to privacy in their homes. If indeed the recording is genuine and was made without the consent of the parties involved, it is a violation of that constitutional right,” Mr Chisanga said.
He said the constitution gives the person who feels that his or her freedom to privacy of their home has been violated the right to seek legal relief before the High Court of Judicature.
