The Christian Democratic Party- CDP- has urged the Zambia Police Service to be firm on people that are abrogating the law.
Party President Dan Pule says people have continued inciting students and the public because the Police service has not sent a strong signal to them that lawlessness will not be allowed.
Bishop Pule says he expects the police to be on high alert and prevent crimes such as student riots even before they happen.
He told ZNBC news that the rate at which some citizens are issuing false statements is alarming and that something needs to be done about it.
Bishop Pule said Zambia is a peaceful country and those who want to promote trouble should not be caged.
And a Kabwe based clergy man has urged Christians to disregard politicians who are propagating hatred against foreign nationals.
Covenant of Grace Bishop Simon Banda says it is unchristian to incite people to rise against others.
Bishop Banda told ZNBC news that if a Chinese breaks the law the due process should be allowed to take its course as opposed to some political leaders inciting Zambians to rise against them.
He challenged those condemning the Chinese to publicly state if they will not work with China if at all they ever form government.
Bishop Banda said Christians are not expected to follow political leaders that want to make the country ungovernable using violence.
