PARAMOUNT Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people in Northern Province has implored fellow traditional leaders to promote peace for national development.

He said traditional leaders had potential to contribute to sustainable peace and national unity due to their influence on the subjects.

The traditional leader said chiefs should use this influence to foster peace and positive change in the country.

“As chiefs we are custodians of the people, land and many other things. We should continue with the spirit of working together to maintain peace,” he said.

He said in an interview that chiefs should consider holding regular provincial conferences in their chiefdoms to strengthen peace and national unity.

The chief said the traditional leaders should also promote inter-marriages among youths as a way of encouraging unity among various tribal groupings in the country.

He said promoting inter-marriages would help bridge tribal differences and strengthen the ‘One Zambia One Nation’ unitary slogan.

“We need to engage our youths on the ground by encouraging them to marry from other tribes. This will help in bringing more unity in the nation,” the traditional leader said.

Chief Chitimukulu said a peaceful country could easily be attained if citizens were free to conduct their activities without disruption.

The chief further said he was impressed with many initiatives from Government such as, taking more empowerment programmes to people in rural areas aimed at reducing poverty levels.

He cited the Government’s decision to upgrade some primary schools while constructing new ones including health centres as being beneficial projects to enhance education and health services to people in the province.

“I urge the government to continue improving the living standards of people in the rural areas and development of chiefdoms,” he said.

    • Is this hypothesis by chitimukulu fit for further observation or should we throw it the dust bin, i mean what statis has got to prove that intermarriages can bring peace and how many Zambians have married across tribe? Let him give us figures of intermarried Zambians.

    • THE ARTICLE BY CHITIMUKULU CAN NEVER BE FAR FROM THE TRUTH. THAT’S WHY I LIKE THIS MAN. HE IS TRUTHFUL AND NUTRAL IN HIS APPROACH TO LIFE. TRULY, INTER-MARRIAGES IS ONE OF THE WAYS FORWARD IN BRINGING TRIBES IN ZAMBIA TOGETHER.

    • Well this is difficult topic you have picked your royal highness. For starters the people in power have called other people very demeaning names. Mumbi your daughter for instance has been very disrespectful and you have said nothing to that effect. Is it because it does not affect your region or because your region is experiencing Pf investment boom?

  2. Targeted at – you know who!!! Those who speak with a lot of pomp and call a sitting President “this boy” and their subjects stand up to clap for them for they have showed that they are bulls who can disrespect a sitting President. Guys, you will isolated and the world will pass you by. Refocus, humble yourselves and integrate yourselves in a unitary Zambia.

  3. A chief should regard any sitting president as his own child regardless of his origins.

  4. Ba tata ba mwine Lubamba, it is because your son was not arrested you would have already confronted Lungur. If you see what is PF doing, I doubt if you will commend on your fellow traditional Leaders. Instead of fighting for freedom but you condemn your fellow chiefs. It is not right. People in prison with HH are only Tonga and when GBM was in front controlling the UPND crew in Mongu, why was he not arrested? The simple issue here because the PF fears you sir.

    I do not want to say a lot but I come to realize that Chiefs are also partisan where others are for Lungu and the other part are for HH period.

  5. Useless chief. They will support who ever gives them the most benefit or inducement. Even I can make this man dance around naked just by giving him a few dollar. They have lost usefulness in the chief doms.

    • You cannot insult a chief like this and yet you aspire for leadership of this country. You may not agree with him but you should not resort to disrespect. What example are you exhibiting? You ‘ve just cost Upnd more votes! What a tactless party strategist????

  6. So chief Mukuni (with due respect to his royal Highness) received something from HH. Another mistake nez, you say that chitimukulu is not bitter because “his son ” Gbm has not be arrested which means you still don’t trust Gbm but wanted to use him.

  7. Wise chief has spoken sense as usual.if tonga chiefs were thinking like Mwinelubemba,tribalism would the thing of the past in Zambia.chiefs have to be neutral and must promote peace,unit for Zambia to develop.

    Its was amazing seeing tonga chiefs addressing the public at HH’s chalala house while reading a political message written by upnd media team.that was very embarrassing and really exposed those chiefs how tribal they are!!when Zambians call upnd as a tonga party,nobody should refuse that fact because indeed it is!!

    BRAVO TO CHITIMUKULU!!

  9. To all all the pf goons above this is why I say you chaps are not responsible enough to exercise the right to vote because it is a very dangerous assumption to make that all chiefs are to be respected and know what they are saying just by virtue of being a chief. As for me I believe that in every society and heirachy of society there will be useless chaps including chiefs who can be bought. It is naive to blindly worship a human being like you or me who can flaw

    “We need to engage our youths on the ground by encouraging them to marry from other tribes. This will help in bringing more unity in the nation,” the traditional leader said.”.This is wisdom bane.I have always been of the view that if KK made a law at independence to make it illegal” to marry from ones tribe in our towns & cities,the “One Zambia One Nation” would have been solid today.Never the less,it is not too late.As it stands today,Zambia is NOT yet a nation,it is an…

  11. Problem with NEZ is that he’s “blameless “. He doesn’t “make mistakes “. He’s completely upright. This is abnormal for a normal human being .

  12. Is this not the same chief who was placed under house arrest by Sata?
    Is this not the same chief who is a vocal columnist?
    Is this a case of the kettle saying the pot is black?
    Or, is pink now the new black?
    Or, is the chief now singing for his supper?

  13. PEACE IS WHAT WE WANT BUT WHY IS IT THAT THE ARRESTED TARGETS ARE ONLY TONGA? I HAVE STARTED DOUBTING OUR COLLEGUES WHO JUST WANT TO USE US AS RUBBER STAMPS AND LADDERS TO STEP ON TOP FOR THEIR TRIBES. IN MONGU FRACAS WAS GBM AND OTHER TRIBES WHY HAS LUNGU JUST PICKED TONGAS AND NOT ANY OTHER PEOPLE? IN AN ATTEMPT OF A COUP DETOUR WE SEE ARRESTS ARE ALL TOP OFFICIALS AND NOT SELECTIVE LEAVING OUT OTHERS.
    I HAVE STARTED DEVELOPING HATE ALSO FOR OTHER CLEVER TRIBES AND I EXPECTED BASHILUBEMBA TO COUNSEL LUNGU AND ASK HIM TO DROP THE FAKE CHARGES SLAPPED ON THE TONGA BULLS. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH BANE.

  14. Nez I’m more UPND than you are, our founding father Mazoka told us to respect Chiefs never ever say rubbish things against any chief in public or media despite. But, for this I don’t think I have a respect for you, let’s talk about politics don’t touch ethics.

  16. Bemba people are another class of Zambians, who seem not to be on the common levels of some people in the same country they are not insecure .
    They are a special brand of people you can just see it from the thoughts of their chief .

    You seem to have chosen the latter option, chief.

  21. Stop promoting intermarriages… It is distorting our cultures. And some tribes are too talkative and too mpompous they may choke our cultures.
    We can still maintain peace and love as a country even without intermarriages…
