A TRADITIONAL leader in Luapula has urged political parties participating in the forthcoming August 11 general election to stop ferrying cadres from other areas to the province to cause confusion.

Chief Matanda advised politicians to desist from bringing political cadres who caused political violence in rural areas.

The traditional leader appealed to political parties to help maintain peace before, during and after the elections.

“Political leaders bring cadres from Lusaka to rural areas to cause violence leading to serious injuries here and later on go back to Lusaka,” he said in an interview.

He noted that Zambia was an oasis of peace and that the status quo needed to be maintained if the country was to achieve its development agenda.
He said people wanted peace as they cast their votes in the forthcoming elections.

He said politicians should allow people to vote freely from the time of voting up to the end and further allow results to be announced peacefully.
Chief Matanda said elections were about winning and losing and advised would-be losers to accept the outcome.

He said the people of Matanda as well as those in other parts of the country had enjoyed peace and hence it must be maintained.

Chief Matanda said Zambia is a Christian nation and politicians had no authority to destabilise the country’s peace because of their selfish ambitions.
He said Zambia was known world over as a peaceful nation and that political party leaders should control their supporters.

He said the Church has a critical role to play to ensure that peace continued to prevail.

“Please stop violence, especially in Matanda. Do not bring cadres here. We have nowhere to run to in case of anything because as you have seen, just a few metres from here is another country. So where shall we go?” he asked.

He urged political parties to build on the culture of the ‘One Zambia One Nation’ which was a uniting factor for all Zambians.

Chief Matanda called for unity among political leaders as they contested for various positions during the elections.

    • Iwe learn to have respect for the chiefs. In fact the message is directed to HH cos pf can’t carry cadres to luapula. It’s only HH who has brought violence to this country since his entry into politics. Please advise your god HH.

    • THIS IS A WISE ADVICE FROM THE CHIEF. CADRES FROM OTHER PROVINCES AND TOWNS CAUSE CONFUSION AND CHAOS IN OTHER PLACES. THIS IS BECAUSE IF SUCH A POLITICAL PARTY IS NOT POPULAR IN A PARTICULAR AREA OR TOWN ALL THEY DO THERE IS VIOLENCE IN ORDER TO REGISTER THEIR PRESENCE AND PUMP FEAR INTO PEOPLE WHO IN TURN STAY AWAY FROM VOTING FEARING THAT THERE WILL BE VIOLENCE. ALL POLITICAL PARTIES SHOULD HEED THIS ADVICE. AND POLICE SHOULD BE UPFRONT IN MAKING SURE THAT NO CADRE IS FERRIED ACROSS PROVINCES BUT ONLY THE SPEAKERS AND FEW ASSISTANTS.

  2. Anyone who follows LT knows which party is rarely mentioned by name if its in negative light. And we also know which violent party cadres are closing down community radio stations in rural areas.

  3. This advice was meant for the party with satanic symbol and colours who ferry their cadres en mass and claim popularity. Funny how the blood coloured overalls disappear and only appear where they go to next. Half nakedness is their new specialty now.

    • No actually it was meant for your party that carries violence like a shadow whereever they go. Their upraised fist inspire fear in the hearts of people.
