By MacPherson Mukuka *In Lusaka*

The opposition National Party has called on Zambians to manifest the One Zambia, One Nation.

Party president RICHARD KAMBULU says the one Zambia; one Nation is not a slogan but a motto which must be lived.

Speaking to THE DEVELOPMENTAL JOURNALIST in a walk –in- interview, Reverend KAMBULU said the escalating number of political violence are a signal of failure to uphold the National motto.

He says it is unfortunate that people have developed hatred against each other based on because of divergent political views.

Rev. KAMBULU says it is the right of every Zambian to belong to a political party of their choice and must be respected by others.

He has urged Zambians to look forward to celebrations next week and not plan for battle.

Meanwhile, opposition Zambia Republican Party ZRP has expressed concern over the alleged attacking of a woman perceived to be a PF supporter by suspected UPND cadres in Sinazongwe.

ZRP National Information and Publicity Secretary DAVID KAFWANKA told THE DEVELOPMENTAL JOURNALIST in a walk-in-interview that the act is barbaric and that the law must take its course.

Mr. KAFWANKA says the attacks on women or any other person must be condoned by a civilized society.

He says the incident is unfortunate because it has happened at the time political party leaders have made an undertaking to put an end to political related violence ahead of next week’s General election.

He has called on Zambians from all walks of life to join hands and reject political parties and leaders who are in the habit of perpetrating violence.
