Mpezeni calls for peace

By CHARLES MUSONDA
PARAMOUNT Chief Mpezeni of the Ngoni people has called on politicians to safeguard Zambia’s peace and unity ahead of the 2021 general elections.

Chief Mpezeni has also appealed to fellow traditional leaders not to be divisive but to embrace and safeguard everyone.
Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka yesterday, Chief Mpezeni appealed to politicians not to engage in campaigns of insults because use of vulgar language in unacceptable as it leads to violence.
He called on fellow chiefs across Zambia to work with the government because they cannot work with a government that is not yet born.
“The government of the day is the one responsible for provision of essential services like medical facilities, education and national development. When there is hunger in the nation people look up to the government of the day for help.
“So let’s respect the government of the day and if all those aspiring for leadership come into office we will respect them. President Lungu and his government should be given chance to work so that they can concentrate on their responsibilities. I am not saying this because President and I come from Eastern but there is need for respect for authorities. If someone is voted as a leader there is need to respect him,” Chief Mpezeni said.
He also thanked President Lungu for appointing Christopher Mvunga as Bank of Zambia Governor, saying he too should be given chance to work.
He said Mr. Mvunga’s appointment is exciting news and came as a surprise.
Chief Mpezenicalled on Mr. Mvunga to respect and consult people as he executes his duties as head of the central bank because he cannot work effectively alone.
