President Hichilema says families have a significant role to play in raising leaders that have the interests of the people at heart.

In describing, Late Dr Hamahvwa, President Hichilema said Dr Hamahvwa was a man who recognized the family as a cornerstone of raising children with respect for others.

The President said the family has lost a great man, who stood for love, peace and unity.

And speaking earlier, Patriotic Front(PF) party member of the Central committee, Emmanuel Mwamba commended President Hakainde Hichilema for the peaceful atmosphere he has created in the country that has allowed members of the opposition to attend functions along with those in Government without feeling threatened.

Mr Mwamba said the warm welcome he received from the UPND leadership in Southern Province was unprecedented.

Mr Mwamba said he felt secure and unthreatened as the ruling UPND senior Party officials of Southern Province recognized his presence and warmly received.

The PF official said the atmosphere he witnessed during his visit demonstrates President Hakainde Hichilema’s commitment to unite all Zambians.

He said the peaceful atmosphere exhibited at the funeral gathering signifies that there was no room for tribal politics.

Mr Mwamba who is an in-law to the deceased said Zambia was one big family as people are linked to one another through intermarriages.

  4. What is the President talking about? To him and his cronies everything was broken until he got to power.
    What family values were broken? Please leave PF out of your speeches.

    • He has run out things to convince the people. The Kwacha is running down the hill and he doesn’t know how to stop it. Simple, we’re not getting anything from the mines which means no dollar is coming in. But he can’t see it…. his clarion cry now is: I have restored peace, I have restored family values when the opposite is what is happening.

  5. Sir , Your failure to improve the economy is destroying family values. Our women have no respect for loafer husbands. Wives have become more promiscous to earn a bit more money to take care of the children. Children are spending more time gambling to suppliment their fathers efforts to take care of the family.
    Gays and Lesbians are campaigning for their rights. Managers are getting sex for jobs. Iam not sure what family values you are talking about Sir.

  6. But kwena abena Zambia teti ubabepe. Kikikikikikiki! Moneni ifyo bamusapulula Ech Ech
    Ati”Sir , Your failure to improve the economy is destroying family values”
