Political analyst Alex Ng’oma has warned political players in the country against denting Zambia’s image of being a haven of peace and stability.
Dr. Ng’oma has told Qfm NEWS that it is unfortunate for political parties to resort to violence in order to gain political mileage.
He says people must at all costs respect life and that stakeholders should embrace dialogue as the only way to resolve disputes.
Dr Ng’oma says the political tension in the country is not inspiring to the young generation who are aspiring for political office.
He implores politicians to have a sense of responsibility.
On Monday, a PF official was murdered in the Livingstone by-election which has since been deferred, by suspected UPND cadres, resulting in arrest of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema together with 17 other party members and officials in connection with the murder.
