BRE Spokesperson Washanga Mpika Shapalubemba has told QFM News in a telephone interview that the Bemba speaking people will continue to honor and respect Sosala because he was chosen following the right procedure.
Washanga states that Bashilubemba will never allow another person to be Paramount Chief Chitimukulu other than Henry Kanyanta Sosala.
Washanga, who could not hide his emotions, states that President Michael Sata should simply allow the BRE to install their chief without interference in any way.
He adds that Bembas from Kasama will not allow and accept an imposed chief because they have their own tradition ways of choosing their traditional leader.
He laments that operations in Chitimukulu chiefdom have been paralyzed following the interference from government in straight forward matters.
