President Lungu has directed the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) management to reinstate the One Zambia One Nation slogan on national television before main news broadcasts to unite the country.
President Lungu said Zambia is a unitary State that should not be divided by tribe, colour or politics.
He said this when he briefly addressed Government officials and PF supporters at Mfuwe International Airport before departure for Lusaka yesterday.
“Tribe and colour should not be a factor. Politics should not divide us just like religion has not divided us. I will talk to the director-general to reinstate the slogan of One Zambia, One Nation which should be played before the main news. This is an official directive,” he said.
On domestic tourism, he said there was need for local people to participate in the sector but warned against poaching.
The President reiterated Government’s commitment to delivering a new constitution as per the road map released earlier.
On concerns over the slow pace of trickle down benefits from fuel price reduction, Mr Lungu said Zambians will in the long run start seeing the benefits despite resistance in some sectors to pass these benefits to consumers.
