Government says itÂ remains committed to dialogue with all stakeholders in order to enhance the prevailing peace in the country.
Chief government spokesperson Mike MulongotiÂ said there is need for all stakeholders to continue dialogue with government.

meeting with the catholic archbishops at state house yesterday.
Mr. Mulongoti who is also information and broadcasting minister said the bishops
during the meeting that was chaired by Republican President Levy Mwanawasa
recognized the government’s leadership in the constitution making process.
Meanwhile, Mr Mulongoti has revealed that the government and the Zambia Episcopal
Conference (ZEC) have resolved to be sending 70% government grant aid directly to
catholic schools and health institutions in districts across the country.
He said this is a departure from the earlier system were such funds were disbursed
And Mr Mulongoti has further revealed that the ZEC has asserted its independent
operation without the influence from other NGOs.
He has since called upon other stakeholders to seek dialogue with the government to
resolve various pertinent issues affecting the nation.
