Don’t use social media to threaten citizens

Dear editor,
The letter that I wrote in the Zambia Daily Mail and Daily Nation in which I appealed to people to stop insulting President Edgar Lungu recently resulted in people threatening me.
A person with a fake name of Bashi Mwana has been sending me nasty and threatening texts on my Facebook page.
The media is open to all, hence if one is not happy with what others write, he or she has the right to respond using the same newspaper so that the public can judge.
Resorting to attacking privately is cowardice, especially for people who use fake names on social media.
It is people like Bashi Mwana who are busy insulting the President using fake names.
