Zambians should desist from entertaining tribalism and instead embrace the One Zambia, One Nation slogan, Chief Hamaundu of the Tonga-speaking people in Pemba District has advised
Speaking in an interview at his palace in Hamaundu Village after the Zambia National Women’s Lobby (ZNWL), Zambia Women Parliamentary Caucus (ZWPC) and UPND Pemba Constituency Member of Parliament, Mutinta Mazoka, paid a courtesy call on him, the chief said despite Zambia having different tribes, tribalism must not be entertained.
“All tribes in Zambia are the same therefore we should be united in promoting One Zambia, One Nation. The One Zambia, One Nation slogan will help us to continue being united if we uphold it,” he said.
And Chief Hamaundu said he was impressed with the developmental projects taking place in his chiefdom.
He cited the upgrading of Kanchomba Primary School to a high school and the construction of clinics as some of the developments that will improve the livelihood of people in his area.
The chief however bemoaned the poor implementation of the e-voucher system in his chiefdom, saying that most of his subjects including himself had not yet received the voucher.
He urged the Government to revise the criteria used in implementing the e-voucher system.
The chief further appealed to the Government to improve the road network in the district as it would ease transportation.
The ZNWL and ZWPC are in Pemba Constituency as part of their on-going nationwide programme to monitor projects by female-led parliamentarians.
