MPs express concern at government’s reluctance to protect them after they received death threats

Legislators have decried the government’s reluctance to protect them when they are being threatened. Parliament’s Information Communications Technology Postal and Courier Services portfolio committee chairperson Nelson Chamisa revealed that in the past legislators, mainly from the opposition have received death threats via their mobile phones and social media. Chamisa said despite reporting the death threats to the police and to the speaker of Parliament, no investigation has been carried out.

said Chamisa:

Can you imagine a so-called honourable member of parliament being sent a death threatening message and government not protecting him through instituting an investigation and having laws that prevent that (threats) from happening? What would happen to a vulnerable citizen?
