Fight tribalism, Zambians urged

CHIEF Government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili has urged all Zambians to join the fight against tribalism and regionalism because they retard development.
Mr Kambwili, who is Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, said no meaningful development can take place in a country which is divided by the scourge of tribalism and regionalism.
He said this when he addressed a public meeting in Isoka yesterday. The meeting was attended by Muchinga Province minister Mwimba Malama, Isoka district commissioner Evenwell Mutambo and Patriotic Front party officials.
“Tribalism and regionalism need to be rooted out in the country as they promote disunity and disorderliness,” Mr Kambwili said.
He said there is need for every sector of society to help Government in the fight against the vice.
Mr Kambwili said citizens should promote the slogan of ‘One Zambia, One Nation’, which has proven to unite ethnic groupings across the country.
He said Government is committed to uniting the people so as to ensure that development reaches every part on the country.
Mr Kambwili further said Government will not tolerate any civil servant being partisan.
“Civil servants should desist from being partisan or risk being penalised,” he said.
The minister said the general public should not suffer due to unreasonable politicking, and that civil servants must concentrate on delivering the needed services to the people with due diligence.
And Mr Mutambo said Government is keen on uniting Zambians as unity is key to cultural exchange.
He also expressed happiness that Isoka was a beneficiary in the development revolution that is taking place in the country.
