–Republican President, Micheal Sata has warned that government will not entertain persons threatening to harm chiefs and Traditional Affairs Minister, Prof Nkandu Luo.
In Statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today, President Sata advised Mr Henry Sosala to act respectably and desist from engaging in actions that are at variance with the law.
President Sata said it is a monumentally unwise deed for Mr Sosala to resort to desperate measures like the ones the country has witnesses lately over a clear-cut issue.
The President has since guided Mr Sosala to seek sober forms of engagement with the government through the Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs if he is aggrieved.
The President noted that it is government’s incontestable responsibility to respect and uphold customs or traditions by ensuring that confusion does not take root in the management of chiefs and traditional affairs.
Mr Sata further reminded Mr Sosala to know that his low priced manoeuvres are an exercise in futility.
This is contained in a Press statement made available to ZANIS by special assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations George Chellah.
Recently, government withdrew its recognistion of Mr Sosala as Senior Chief Mwamba of the Bemba people.
However, yesterday the The Bemba Royal Establishment (BRE) called on President Michael Sata to re-consider his decision and recognize Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Senior Chief Mwamba of the Bemba speaking people in Kasama District.
