A non-governmental organization whose aim is to eradicate tribalism in Zambia has launched sensitization programs in markets and bus stations throughout the country.
Zambia Anti Tribalism and Youth Organization (ZATYO) General Secretary Burton Kamwela told ZANIS in an interview that his organization will work with the help of chiefs and youths to ensure that tribalism is eradicated in Zambia.
Mr. Kamwela said that his organization which was recently formed is non-partisan and it will work with all stakeholders in the communities to stop tribal practices which he described as having the potential to spread like bush fire if left unchecked.
He called on all peace loving people of Zambia to support his organization in fighting tribalism in the country.
Mr. Kamwela stressed that tribalism promotes hatred among some sectors of the society.
A fortnight ago, the NGO held its first board meeting in Solwezi District which drew participants from Lusaka and the Copperbelt where sensitization program of activities was unveiled.
