Kaunda fears

FOUNDING President Kenneth Kaunda says he is afraid that the country is going to be destroyed if people, especially politicians, continue on the tribal path and fail to observe the 10 Commandments of the Bible.
Dr Kaunda has also said that despite their cultural diversity, Zambians should strive for peace and unity in the New Year.
Dr Kaunda advised politicians to refrain from promoting tribalism, saying Zambia has come a long way as a united country.
He said leaders must unite and come together to maintain peace and avoid tribal campaigns as witnessed in 2016.
“Zambia has people of different colours, tribes and faiths and cannot develop when people are not in harmony with one another, especially leaders who are the drivers of the nation,” said Dr Kaunda.
He said this in a Christmas message at his State Lodge house, where he also received presents from some children.
Dr Kaunda said there is need for people to live by the 10 commandments of God in 2017.
“Let’s live by the commandments in 2017 regardless of our tribe, colour and political party affiliation.
“We must by all means stop being tribal,” he said.
Dr Kaunda said that God has made it possible for Zambia to enjoy peace and unity over the decades.
He appealed to all the country’s tribes to co-exist peacefully if Zambia is to maintain its unity and that it would be terrible if people failed to observe the 10 Commandments.
