The meeting will take place in Lusaka at the Ministry of Finance Headquarters starting ar 10.00hrs.

“As the Green Party, we are elated that the honorable Minister has accorded us this opportunity to share some of our ideas on debt sustainability. Of course, we will not have alot of time to discuss as the minister is a very busy Government official. So we plan to focus on less controvesial but high value proposals so as to optimise on the limited time,” Mr. Sinkamba said.

Mr. Sinkamba added that he hopes that soon, the warm relation that exists between his party and the ruling party will extend to other parties, especially the UPND. He added that Zambia has several brainy people with great ideas that could elevate this country to higher heights but inhibited to do so due to artificial aviodable political barriers.

“As the Green Party, we are quite elated that President Edgar Lungu has initiated reconciliation with UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema. We think that the move could not have come at a better time than now. We hope that soon, the two leaders will meet and reconcile their differences. We believe that there is urgent need to restore unity and harmony in the nation so that we can all put together our brains with one common agenda to redeem mother Zambia,” Mr. Sinkamba said .

“As we have always said, nothing in this world is more important than reconciliation. We think that time for pride and belligerency is over as belligerency will never take this country anywhere. We think that time has now come for mutual respect, reconciliation and national development above all,” he added.

    • It’s good to talk , as one advert by a telephone company in UK used to say. Mandela once said you make peace with your enemies so that they can be your friend.

  2. When Uhuru Kenyata was publicly reconciling with his political rival many Zambians ululated and were praising Uhuru for what they termed as an unprecedented gesture, what many tended to forget is that our very own late president Dr Levy Patrick Mwanawasa had previously extended that accord to one of his most bitter enemy late Mr Michael Sata who called Dr Mwanawasa many unprintables which under our current regime would have put Mr Michael Sata on death roll.

  3. During their public reconciliation Levy admitted that without Sata, he could not have worked as hard as he did because Sata used to bring out a lot of weaknesses in Levy’s leadership which levy put to good use in improving his own governance, Levy also went on to say that within his government every one was a yes bwana hence none were able to give him real blunt advice all they did was to praise him even when he was doing something wrong hence his finding solace in Sata’s criticism.
    That is how great leaders behave, not this mediocracy we are seeing in todays political players, this country belongs to all Zambians, the fact that you have aspired for political office or are holding political office does not put you above everyone else, let us learn to dissect between good and bad for…
