Mulongoti calls for inclusion of opposition in governance
Lusaka, June, 15,ZANIS— Opposition All Peoples Party (APP ) president Mike Mulongoti has advised government to involve the opposition in issues of national development.
Mr Mulongoti says it is important for the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) government to involve the opposition in issues of national development.
He said this was because there is need for government to embrace opposition parties in order to address national challenges because problems affect every citizen.
ZANIS reports that the opposition leader said this in a telephone interview in Lusaka, today.
The party president said the opposition do not attach emotions to developmental matters but simply stick to their role of providing checks and balances.
He said the PF ought to work with all opposition leaders for Zambia to achieve the millennium development goals and the 2030 vision.
Mr Mulongoti said embracing the opposition can bring about expertise in handling the developmental projects that the government wishes to undertake.
It was only MMD leader Dr. Nevers Mumba and some of his party ‘s National Executive Committee ( NEC ) leaders that participated in in yesterday ‘s annual Inter Company relay officiated by First Lady Dr. Christine Kaseba- Sata.
The rest of the opposition was conspicuously absent.
