The opposition Forum for Democratic
Alternatives President Ludwig Sondashi has commended President
Edgar Lungu for recognizing Henry Sosala Kanyata as Chitimukulu.
Dr Sondashi said in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today that the recognition of Sosala Kanyata by President Lungu as the paramount chief
Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people will help end the wrangles surrounding the issue between government and the Bemba Royal Establishment.
The FDA leader said the recognition will also restore the peace that
existed between the Bemba speaking people and government.
He charged that the PF was at fault in meddling in the installation of Henry Kanyata as Chitimukulu.
Dr Sondashi advised government not to interfere with the appointment of traditional leaders in order to avoid unnecessary wrangles as each tribe has its own laid down system of installing traditional leaders.
