PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Chama has called on Zambians to embrace love, peace and unity in 2016.

And Mr Chama says every Zambian should condemn hate speech that seems to have taken root in the political circles.

In an interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Chama said it is important for Zambians to remain united and desist from peddling lies.

He said the PF will continue to stand on its principles of transformational leadership and accelerated development.

“Without peace, we cannot achieve and attain the Zambia we want and dream of. But with unity and love, we can go far,” he said.

Mr Chama said peace will only be achieved through individual and collective efforts and that in the New Year, Zambians must embrace the ideals of peace.

“Shun practices that will lead to the disintegration of the family unit, which is the foundation of any country. Family unity is critical because without it, the Church and the country cannot function well,” he said.

“It is a shame that in a country like ours that is endowed with natural resources, our people are still wallowing in poverty. We believe that if we can work together and desist from regionalism and tribal politics this year, we can find possible alternatives on how to improve the lives of our people,” he said.

Mr Chama has advised Zambians not to be misled by selfish politicians with intentions to enrich themselves.

“If our leaders who worked tirelessly to liberate our country against colonialism were preaching politics of hate and tribe, we wouldn’t have attained this freedom we are enjoying. Let’s not put the peace of our country at risk because our children need to grow,” he said.

Mr Chama said hate speech is dangerous because words have power and can influence others to act without making an informed decision.

Hate speech promotes division and intolerance; it harms and marginalises the vulnerable groups, who are usually the victims.

“We are in an election year and as Zambians, we should ensure that what we do or say promotes love and unity and should be opposed to violence,” Mr Chama said.

    • Bandit Davies Chama at the helm!

      This Bandit Chama is the “chorus” of hurt speech, tribalist & dull nincompoop with his entire PF BANDITS. Actually Bandit Chama needs to be arrested & charged with 2 attempted murder of cases for shooting innocent people from opposition political parties.

      4 months left ? for visionless PF BANDITS, now this corrupt Chama MUST shut his mouth ? closed!

    • Chama is a sick thicko. He, Mumbwe Phiri and Chagwa have been sneering at Tongas as bakachema for the last one year. They are the propagators of hate speech in Zambia. Nobody talked about how the Bemba thieves have ruined the Zambian economy through fraudulent construction contracts. But they have been attacking the honest hardworking Tongas ever since January 2015.

  1. UPND needs to be very SMART, strategic and should have a very good PR team so as not to fall into traps designed to make the public lose confidence in them. UPND should not just wait for campaigns but should be positioning themselves strategically as the largest opposition party based upon the last elections. The other opposition parties should start doing the same and avoid attacking each other.

  2. At the rate UPMD is shooting itself in the foot every other day, one wonders whether UPMD remains the largest opposition party. I for one think that they had their peak in January when the nation and the PF was still confused with the passing of Sata.
    I predict an implosion of UPMD when the two cosmetic Vice Presidents come back to their senses and realize that the general membership consider them as outsiders. If you have been observant, the most visible sign was when the running mate clause was passed, UPMD cadres at all levels were hard put to hide or disguise their disappointment that it brought the possibility of a Bemba president in UPMD. Not surprising at all when you remember that the whole essence of the post Mazoka UPMD was to fight what they perceived as Bemba dominance in…

  3. If you want to argue I will ask you a simple question: do you think that GBM could ever make it as Vice President of UPMD by election at a convention?

  4. DAVIS CHAMA, MUMBI PHIRI, CHANDA AND KAMBWILI SHOULD NEVER TALK ABOUT PEACE IF THEY HAVE FAILED TO COUNSEL THEIR PF MINIONS. THESE FOUR UNDER SO WHAT MAY COME ARE TRIBAL SINGERS WHO ARE DIVIDING THE REST OF ZAMBIANS FROM OUR BEST FRIENDS AND WORK MATES. ALL ALONG THEY HAVE BEEN SPITING EVIL WORDS.
    I CAN NOT LISTEN TO THESE FOUR THE UNFORTUNATE STORY TELLERS.

  6. Chama is a sick psycho high on psychotropic substances! He thinks we have forgotten how he has been pushing tribal politics and hate speech against Tongas. If there will be genocide in Zambia, Chama and Lungu will end up at the ICC.

  9. Chama should have called on PF cadres and the Tear glass happy police to embrace peace, love and unity in 2016.

    Zambians already have these qualities.

  10. UNIP and the KK team coined the One Zambia One Nation slogan when they were faced with the ugly head of tribal politics in the 1970s. They also decided to broadcast civil servants from other tribes in provinces dominated by other tribes. Thus the stereo typing and misconceptions that each tribe had of other tribes were reduced. The point being made is thatthe UNIP government did not join ordinary party cadres and individuals to condemn other tribes. They stood above as government a led the campaign for unity. This is NOT happening with the PF government team whose senior party officials have taken the lead in calling tribes in areas PF is weak all sorts of names. Who will defend Zambians then if the government takes sides? Please note that I am talking about government taking the lead. I…

  11. I came to believe what the bible says about the last days,and for sure we’re in the last days.I can’t believe my ears that I can hear Mr chama can preach such words.Jesus once warned that in the last days even devils will be preaching in his name,but let us be careful with this type of preachers cause we can assist Satan in the name of Jesus.
