The European Delegation in Zambia has maintained that both President Edgar Lungu and opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema have a responsibility to denounce political violence.
EU Head of Delegation to Zambia Alessandro Mariani said the two political leaders must clearly denounce political violence if Zambia is to remain a peaceful nation.
Mr Mariani also stressed that there should be no preconditions to ending acts of political violence.
He was speaking on Friday after a delegation of EU Ambassadors to Zambia held a closed door meeting with President Lungu at State House.
Mr Mariani confirmed that the meeting touched on a number of issues such as the national dialogue process, economic matters and public debt including Zambia’s role as Chair of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation.
He said the two leaders should publicly disown its supporters who are involved in political violence.
And President Lungu said his administration remains committed to working with the European Union to improve the livelihood of every citizen.
