PATRIOTIC Front (PF) media director, Sunday Chanda has cautioned against attempts by some sections of society to deliberately misunderstand what former Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda was raising in his insightful article.
Mr Chanda said that those who wished to scratch the surface would miss the gist of his argument.
He said that as a senior member of the ruling party and member of the Central Committee, Mr Chikwanda continued to speak wisdom into the movement, to guide and correct.
Mr Chanda said PF was a learning organisation and soul searching was a critical component on this journey of service delivery to the Zambian people.
“There are those who are banking on a cracked PF but these will have a rude awakening as the Party mobilises itself for greater strength and unity in 2018 and beyond. For PF, revisiting our founding ideals is key to the effective execution of our responsibilities as the ruling party and that’s the role institutional memory resident in accomplished politicians such as Mr Chikwanda comes to play,” Mr Chanda said.
Mr Chikwanda stated in his article that the nation needed a moral crusade to entrench awareness that there was more to life than material trappings.
Mr Chikwanda said that the nation should seriously reflect on the moral erosion which engulfs the entire society.
“As a country, we should seriously reflect on the moral erosion which engulfs the entire society. The country is inexorably becoming a moral and intellectual vacuum as we all embellish, recycle and glamourise worn out slogans, clichés and myths,” he said.
Mr Chikwanda also said that churches should embrace deeper morality than inadvertently jumping on the corruption bandwangons
