UPND are the source of con­flict in Zam­bia

Daily Nation Newspaper - - READERS FORUM -

Dear Edi­tor,

IF the ul­ti­mate goal for di­a­logue is peace, why grum­ble about who, when, how and where it is bro­kered?

Rec­on­cil­i­a­tion does not mean agree­ment on all mat­ters, but it is a con­struc­tive process of re­spect­ful dis­agree­ment and de­bate on mat­ters that build bridges for clos­ing up ranks of di­vi­sions in a coun­try.

The prob­lem we have with the UPND is, they want all they want, when they are not the only ones af­fected in the na­tional mat­ters.

I say so be­cause, they say they have noth­ing to do with the na­tional di­a­logue if it is not led by the Com­mon­wealth (Daily Na­tion 11th May, 2018).

Zam­bians can­not only di­a­logue where, how and when the UPND deems it fit be­cause the na­tion is not about them, af­ter all, there was no UPND 18 years ago, and the na­tion per­formed bet­ter then, in terms of solv­ing dif­fer­ences of na­tional in­ter­est.

With the fore­go­ing, the UPND are the source of con­flict as they al­ways want to stay away from any pos­i­tive strides that the na­tion makes, and peo­ple should be able to see through them and their mo­tives.

We are aware that they carry an un­ex­plained yoke on their shoul­ders from who­ever, and they just have to redeem them­selves and not to sac­ri­fice the na­tion. Adeo­da­tus Matafwali, Lusaka.
