File:President Edgar Lungu Meets Luvale-Lunda Chiefs In Zambezi.

President Edgar Lungu has called on the Church and other stakeholders to help unite the Lunda and Luvale people of Zambezi District in North Western Province.

The President said he is saddened by the continued tribal conflict between the two ethnic groupings which he said must be brought to an end.

President Lungu said the latest fighting between the two tribes during the delimitation exercise meeting organised by the Electoral Commission of Zambia in Zambezi District is embarrassing.

The President also wondered why the two ethnic groupings have continued to fight in Zambezi District despite them interacting freely in government.

President Lungu was speaking to Journalists at Kansanshi Hotel in Solwezi North Western Province on various issues affecting the National.

Meanwhile President Edgar Lungu is disappointed that some traditional leaders, Civil Society Leaders and Church leaders have misinterpreted his statement where he said the current UPND Leader cannot be President of Zambia.

President Lungu said it is disappointing that Traditional leaders and other stakeholders have twisted his statement claiming it was targeted at the Tonga speaking people.

“At no point did I say that Tongas will never rule this country, my statement was directed at one person whose character does not befit a national leader. How can people who are able to read and write twist my statement like that? This is embarrassing”, he said.

President Lungu maintained that one day Zambia will have a Tonga President but not Hakainde Hichilema.

  2. This ECL Guy is really campaigning for HH. People will end up voting for HH out of spite and nothing else. Please ECL just concentrate on national issues and finding the owner of the 48 houses and nit the fake owner.

  3. Is the President serious, when he said this, does he want us to remind him when he was sworn as President of Zambia to what did sweared to.

    Does get the briefed with intelligence? I’m sure he does why not use the intelligence to bring these two people together.

    How is the church is going to help? Most of our churches Are not self-sufficient they rely on international support.

    Look how This administration displays the power, I thought it was because of defending the Constitution.

  4. There is just one well known chief in zambezi who promotes tribalism.Whoever u will ask in zambezi whether lunda or luvale will be bold enough to pin point this traditional leader.He is always threatening bloodshed.If late President Sata succeeded in dethroning this chief,tribalism could have come to an end.The ordinary lunda and luvales live in harmony.They help each other during funerals,weddings and other social functions.

  6. Time for the church to be proactive is now,the president does not need to tell the church to unite the two tribes the church should just see and act but the problem we have a sleeping church,the church whose individuals are interested in politics especially those in higher position of different churches.Muleufwako isoni you are the head and not tail wake church and do what God called you for,to bring people together the bible says “How good and pleasant it is when brethren dwell together in unity”the call of the church is bring unity and there is no need of reminding them,they know what they are suppose to do.wake up wake up sleeping giants.

  8. Tribal conflicts between people who should be living peacefully as brothers and sisters are not good. Why should aLunda and vaLuvale fight each other? Why should aChewa and aNgoni fight. I would rather have the government look at the this issue critically and impartially then come up with a lasting solution before lives are lost than push this issue to the church. By the way which churches is Edgar talking about? If he means the commercial churches and formations like christians for lungu then he is lost on that one. Those only have time for activities which bring in money for the men of GOLD to live lavish lifestyles and not for conflict resolution. Besides, maintaining public order and peace in the nation is the responsibility of the government.
