BY-ELECTIONS come and go but the nation remains.For peace to continue prevailing in the country, political parties should stop campaigning as if there is no tomorrow or indeed that tomorrow depends on the Chilanga parliamentary seat.
It is during elections when we fail a litmus test to show love, tolerance and unity because of the language used and the violence. The two major political parties, Patriotic Front and United Party for National Development, should exercise restraint during campaigns.
The Church should monitor the language that political players use and counsel those who insult.
We have one country, Zambia, and the outcome of the Chilanga parliamentary by-election should not leave wounds but pleasant memories in the minds of the electorate there.
