MMD President Felix Mutati has advised his tribes men, the Lungu people of Mpulungu district to use dialogue when settling their differences as opposed to violence and fighting.

Speaking at the burial ceremony of the late Chief Mukupa Kaoma who was killed due to succession wrangles Mr Mutati said the Lungu people had come far for them to be spilling blood due to leadership wrangles.

Mr Mutati said there is nothing insurmountable which cannot be resolved through dialogue and that nothing should lead to people killing each other as that paints a bad picture of the people who belong to the tribe.

“We should not have allowed what happened here to happen. We should not fight for leadership, we can over other things but not leadership. We should not kill each other for the sake of leadership because we will end up failing to govern ourselves.

“The entire nation is now looking at our tribe and wondering how we govern ourselves? Why have you done that? But it’s only God who knows best, we have gone through a lot as a people and we should not be spilling blood over leadership,” he said..

And Mr Mutati has said that the power of installing traditional leadership has been given back to the people of respective tribes hence the is no need for people to fight over it.

Chief Mukupa Kaoma was killed recently after he tried to take over the traditional leadership of the Lungu people as rival groups fought running battles using pangas, axes and other unconventional weapons.

  1. Whichever way, HH made a self-inflicting pain.
    He has dribbled himself from continuing with his political career.
    HH’s political career has been deeply challenged, because after losing in August 2016 he will be forced to retire from active politics by the ‘guys’ or is he going to accept to be a mere UPND member, or at least a member of the NEC?
    Let us assume that in the unlikely even he won the election (forgive me for assuming the impossible), GBM would be a thorn in HH’s flesh – take it or leave it. GBM would have a constitutional mandate just like HH, and HH will have no powers to fire him. Those who know GBM will tell you, that HH’s would not be easy.

    • People may not like what I have said but that matters little the point is that, whichever way, HH’s career has taken a self-inflicted challenge because of greed – the hunger and thirsty for State House.

    • THE APPOINTMENT OF GBM AS UPND RUNNING MATE SEEMS TO HAVE UNSETTLED YOU. IT IS GIVING YOU SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. BA PF KUYA BEBELE MU AUGUST 2016. NO MORE NO LESS. IT WILL BE SUICIDAL FOR ZAMBIANS TO ALLOW PF AND LUNGU TO CONTINUE DESTROYING THE COUNTRY WHILE WE ARE LOOKING. IT HAPPENED TO KK AND RB. IT WILL HAPPEN TO LUNGU IN AUGUST WHETHER YOU PEOPLE LIKE IT OR NOT. BA LUNGU KUYA BEBELE. MWAYIBA PAFULA.

    • Mwati ba @ advce mulenya noku nya these days?GBM’s vice presidency has given you serious constipation.That issue is water under the bridge,let it go,it has happened kwasila.GBM is running mate finish.Kanye nomba.

  2. Can Mutati hear himself? Wait until Nevers comes for your head too. You equally failed to resolve your differences within MMD and you can stand before mourners and yap like this?
