Bishop John Mambo has observed that the type of politics being practiced by politicians in the country has caused people with fresh minds to shun politics.
Bishop Mambo said the current political environment in the country is saturated with insults making it impossible for fresh minds to join politics. He said Zambian politicians have adopted a culture of insults as the best way to participate in politics.He said if this trend of politics of insults continues, Zambian politics will become meaningless.
Bishop Mambo told QFM in an interview that politicians should concentrate on issue-based politics if Zambia is to develop. He said that politicians should refrain from politics of insults if they are to succeed in governing the country.
He called on politicians to tone down their language in order to make the political environment in the country more conducive.
Bishop Mambo said that Zambia has a lot of knowledgeable citizens who would want to join politics, but are being scared away by the vulgar language being used on the political scene.
