No more playing of national anthem instrumentally but should be physically sung – PS

Rural News No more playing of national anthem instrumentally but should be physically sung...

Muchinga Province Permanent Secretary, Davison Mulenga has urged residents in the province to ensure that they sing verbally the Zambia National Anthem in order to acquaint themselves with its contents and understand the meaning of the song.

Captain Mulenga has since directed that the national anthem should not be guided using an audio or instrumental but should be sung vocally during government meetings.

Capt Mulenga said he has noted with dismay that a number of people do not know all the verses of the national anthem hence hide in the played audios during meetings.

“Most of us only know the first verses and chorus of the national anthem which we are used to sing. It is high time that we stuck to the guidance that cabinet gave of singing the entire song,” he said.

Capt Mulenga said as a result, people do not understand and know the meaning of the words contained in the national anthem hence the need for it to be verbally sung.

He said the national anthem has meaning to the country and its people, and is among the attributes that makes one to be identified as a true Zambian.

The PS stated that Zambians ought to be proud of themselves and hold dearly the national anthem by singing it with pride and confidence.

  1. They teach the national anthem plus drawing court of arms and flag at primary. Thats more than enough education on what is truly important for every Zambian citizen. But this thing of trying to make grown-ups try learn again by forcing behavior is nonsensical. Do the right thing from primary, the rest will come naturally.

  2. “Standa ‘n sing ‘o Zambia proud Humphrey, land ‘o fweka njoyi unipi, vistas in the struggle for re right, we won freedom fight, all wah, strong ‘n free” If you don’t know this one then you are not Zambian by birth.

  3. It is not illegal to have the National Anthem played instrumentally. This person must cite the law to force people to sing.

  4. ‘He said the national anthem has meaning to the country and its people, and is among the attributes that makes one to be identified as a true Zambian.’
    RUBBISH!

  5. I recall how we would stand for national anthem at 20th Century and Plaza 3 cinema. And some guy will go round with torch forcing those wearing caps to remove them. Does this still happen?

  6. HOW DOES CAPTAIN DAVIES WA MULE EXPECT PEOPLE TO SING OUT VERBALLY LOUD WHEN THEY ARE ANGRY AND HUNGRY? WHEN A PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY THEY LOSE CONTROL OF THEIR PROPER MENTAL FACULTIES BECUASE THEY HAVE TO THINK WHERE THE NEXT MEAL WILL COME FROM. THINGS ON THE GROUND ARE TOUGH.

  7. Mr Milenga are we implementing what is sung
    In the National Anthem?That is more important then forcing people to sing it.

  8. Yaba, I have been corrected. “Standa ‘n sing ‘o Zambia proud Humphrey, land ‘o fweka njoyi unipi, vistas in the struggle for re right, All one three don’t fight, All wah, strong ‘n free” “One Zambia!….Nationeee”
