I WISH TO ASSURE THE NATION THAT THE SO-CALLED “TONGAS ON OATH” UNDERGROUND GROUP IS NON-EXISTENT IN CHIRUNDU AND SIAVONGA, AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PEOPLE OF THESE AREAS, WHO ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH GOVERNMENT’S DECISION TO RE-ALIGN THE DISTRICTS.

TO THE RESIDENTS OF CHIRUNDU AND SIAVONGA, IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT SUCH A GROUP IS A PRODUCT OF PEOPLE COMING FROM OUTSIDE THE AFFECTED AREAS, WHO ARE CHAMPIONING A CANCEROUS AND DIVISIVE AGENDA.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE HAVE IN OUR MIDST POLITICIANS WHO ARE BENT ON DIVIDING THE NATION ALONG TRIBAL LINES. IT IS CLEAR THAT THE OPPOSITION UPND HAS BEEN PREACHING DIVISIONS ON SEVERAL MATTERS OF GOVERNANCE INCLUDING THE RE-ALIGNMENT OF DISTRICTS AND IF ANYTHING THEY ARE TO BLAME FOR ACTIVITIES SUCH AS THOSE BEING PROMOTED BY THE SAID SHADOWY GROUP.

THE UPND LEADERSHIP MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY OF THIS EMBARRASSING EPISODE IN OUR COUNTRY’S POLITICAL HISTORY. IT’S NOT A SECRET THAT THAT UPND HAS MADE IT ROUTINE TO CRITICIZE AND ATTACK THIS GOVERNMENT ON TRIBAL OR ETHNIC LINES.

THEREFORE, THEY [UPND] OWE THIS UNITARY STATE CALLED ZAMBIA AN APOLOGY.

LASTLY, LET ME STATE THAT THE PEOPLE OF CHIRUNDU AND SIAVONGA ARE FIRMLY UNITED BEHIND THE GOVERNMENT AND THE LEADERSHIP OF PRESIDENT MICHAEL CHILUFYA SATA, AND THEY WILL NOT BE SWAYED BY OUTSIDERS WHO WANT TO BRING CONFUSION IN THE AREA. WE ARE PART OF ONE NATION CALLED ZAMBIA AND WE ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE DANGERS OF DIVISIVE POLITICS. WE ARE MORE INTERESTED IN DEVELOPMENT AND NOTHING ELSE.

ISSUED BY:

MR. BRAVE MWEETWA
SIAVONGA DISTRICT COMMISSIONER
