LUSAKA, Zambia - Dec. 13, 2022 - PRLog -- President of Zambia Hakainde Hichilema recently made a stunning announcement. On the occasion of Africa day which is an auspicious and thankful day in Africa, President Hichilema announced that he is planning to completely abolish the death penalty row. This announcement has received significant support from across the nation. One of the major supporters has been Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani, a noted businessman and philanthropist from Zambia. Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani recently gave an interview with the 'Mast Newspaper' of Zambia. In this interview, Dr. Rajan Mahtani praised the decision from the Zambian President stating that it was an unwavering and bold decision from the Zambian government under the leadership of President Hakainde Hichilema. The concept of death penalty is archaic and holds no significance in the modern legal system. It is an inhumane, degrading and cruel law which is already abolished across majority of the nations across the globe. In Zambia too, the last death penalty was given in 1997 when the person was executed and since then, Presidents have been using mercy prerogatives to avoid death penalty. As such, it is high time to abolish this archaic law and the decision from the Zambian President is a step in the right direction.

Dr. Rajan Mahtani further said that the Zambian President and his government will need significant support towards making this announcement a reality. As such, Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani owned Portland Cement Zambia will provide full legal and regulatory support towards this decision.
