LEADERS must stop using tribe to gain political mileage because other Zambians will feel segregated and that will bring chaos in the country, Zambia Redemption Front president Kelly Walubita has said.
“We are all created in the image of God and a person’s tribe is irrelevant; we should treat each other as brothers and sisters and respect one another,’’ Mr Walubita said.
He said leaders should not exhibit high levels of arrogance and a leader who has hatred did not deserve to be a leader.
“I salute the President who is not involved in tribal marks; it’s unfortunate that people below him are the ones in the forefront,’’ he said. Meanwhile, Mr Walubita said external borrowing must be regulated and that the capacity of borrowing should be attainable.
He said the money borrowed should not go to projects that could not pay back.
“Let us not borrow and build roads but put the money in projects that will pay back the people of Zambia. Roads are ok if the programme is within the capacity of the Government,’’ Mr Walubita said.
Mr Walubita added that the road sector should not be ‘‘overdone because our economy will be unstable’’.
“We have to accept that 70 percent of Zambia is donor-funded, we cannot survive without donors because our economy depends on them,’’ he said.
