Lawyers fear to represent suspects


There’s no freedom for anyone If one can die for standing up for the people.


That’s the government we have in the country. People feel threatened and end up not doing their job efficientl­y.


When even lawyers are scared, the country is ungovernab­le. CHRIS NTUNGWA

We cannot blame lawyers who refuse to represent suspects. They also lost relatives. We know we are all related in this country. TAKHONA DLADLA

The lawyers should come clean. Who are threatenin­g them and what is the reason behind? Did they report the threats to the police, because these can help us solve the mystery on why some people are against them being represente­d.
