ZAM congratulates Lungu


THE Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM), whose rank and file membership was actively involved in the August elections, with some performing at opposition rallies and others at those for the ruling party, has congratulated President Lungu on his re-election.
In a statement made available to the Weekend Mail in Lusaka, ZAM chairperson Njoya Tembo says his association looks forward to working with the President not only in developing the music industry but the country as a whole.
“Please accept our warm congratulations on your victory and our best wishes for your success as you prepare to take up the responsibilities and challenges of your high office.
“As you embark upon your new five-year mandate, I, and on behalf of the Zambia Association of Musicians (ZAM), wish to assure you and your government of the musicians’ support countrywide.
“We look forward to working with you not only to develop the music industry but to see national development and to contribute our efforts in the cause of peace and the brotherhood of all peoples as we strive to bring to reality the ‘One Zambia, One Nation’ motto.”
Meanwhile, veteran theatre actress Ardes Mwansa has appealed to her fellow artistes in the country to start producing works that will help contribute to peace and unity in the country now that the political campaigns are over.
“Fellow artistes, now that the campaign period is over, can we start composing products that will promote unity in the country [and] not the provocative campaign products! Let’s work according to the situation at hand. It’s time to move on in unity. This is the time to show that we are truly ‘One Zambia, One Nation’,” Ardes wrote in Artists Forum, a Facebook group where artistes from various sectors share news and information.
