STOP THE POLITICAL VIOLENCE
I WRITE to appeal and actually urge all political players in the Chilanga by-election to avoid violence. The current violence being perpetuated by mainly PF and UPND supporters is uncalled for and is barbaric for a Christian nation. Why should blood be shed just for because of differences in opinion?
Let us not make politics become a dirty game by the vice at all cost.
Whoever wins the Chilanga seat will be the Parliamentary representative for all residents irrespective of political affiliation hence there is no need to shed blood.
Let us resolve to co-exist even as we belong to different political parties.
The Electoral Commission of Zambia should also come out in full force to discipline perpetrators of electoral violence by penalising those found wanting. We just have one life to live and that life is so precious to be lost through barbaric means of hacking.
Let the peace Zambia is known for continue to be the epitome of our political dispensation that is envied the world over.
Wisdom Muyunda, CHINGOLA.
