AS WE celebrate this important day when the country was liberated from the oppressive rule of colonialists, I urge all Zambians to heed the advice of our veteran politicians and freedom fighters Sikota Wina and Vernon Mwanga to use this opportunity to unite.
Politicians should desist from using this day to settle political scores because independence is for all Zambians regardless of political affiliation.
Let all politicians put their differences aside and celebrate this great achievement of peace and prosperity as a united force.
There is no better time to show our love and patriotism for our country than this.
Let us show appreciation to our founding fathers who sacrificed for this independence by celebrating as a united force.
