The Peoples Alliance for Change has called for the dissolution of the current Zambia Center for Interparty Dialogue Board.

Party President Andyford Banda says the current ZCID Board must be dissolved and a new one appointed that will take the dialogue seriously.

Mr. Banda noted with concern that the current ZCID Board has been constantly changing positions on dialogue leading to delays in completing the process.

“The dialogue process has been dragging because of the ZCID itself, these people have been changing positions on this matter without shame. Unfortunately we need to move forward and this board cant be part of it”, he said.

Mr. Banda has since urged Political Parties that are members of the ZCID to unite and together call for the dissolution of the ZCID Board in the interest of the nation.

And Mr. Banda has urged Zambians to support the Church led dialogue saying the country is safe in the hands of the church than the ZCID.

He said the Church proved their competence to handle the process at the recently held meeting of Political party leaders at Kapingila House that they can handle the process without any problems.

“Moreover, this is not the first time the church will be handling such a process, they have brought the nation together before. they can be trusted with this process”, Mr. Banda added.

  1. Yes,the ZCID members can call for the election of new office bearers.However,I don’t see this bearing any fruit because the PF desperately want the status quo to remain.
    The PF are just paying lip service to the dialogue process and are hell bent on maintaining the current compromised ECZ,Judiciary ,police force and public order act.They believe this will ensure they stay in power in 2021.
    The best thing for the opposition to do now is strengthen their political alliance and strategize for 2021.
    The opposition should realize that they are not only competing with the PF but Chinese money as well.


    • PF is simply in tarters. If they hold elections they will elect again their Presidential running-mate Nathan Chanda as their ZCID director.
