Paramount Chief Chitimukulu urges HH to ignore detractors

PARAMOUNT Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba has urged all Zambians to respect the office of the presidency.

Paramount Chief Chitimukulu says there can only be one president at a time and as such all Zambians must respect the will of the people.

The Mwinelubemba was speaking when President Hakainde Hichilema paid a courtesy call on him at his palace yesterday in Mungwi.

Chitimukulu has also advised President Hichilema not to pay attention to all people criticising him.

He said some people are merely criticising the government without having facts.

He has since advised Mr Hichilema not to respond to all statements some of which may not be in good faith.

“You know there are some people abusing social media and you should not respond to all statements which are not well intended,” Paramount Chief Chitimukulu said.

And President Hichilema said the UPND administration will not interfere in the selection process of traditional leaders.

Mr Hichilema said the government will continue to respect the traditional leaders as they are custodians of the people they rule.

He said the government cannot be in competition with traditional leaders as they are partners in development.

And the President has made his assurance that the country is reunited.  “We as UPND administration remain committed to ensuring that we reunite the country.” Meanwhile, President Hichilema has challenged contractors and engineers to ensure quality and timely delivery of capital projects.
