Chipimo urges politicians to offer constructive criticism
Lusaka, September 30, ZANIS—National Restoration Party (NAREP) president Elias Chipimo has advised opposition political parties to offer constructive criticism to the government.
Mr. Chipimo said some opposition political party leaders were in the habit of criticizing government even when it has done a commendable job.
He said this in Lusaka today when he featured on Komboni Radio programme dubbed “Is Zambian politics growing or not?”
Mr. Chipimo said he does not object to the trend of criticising government when it makes wrong political decisions because such were not in the interest of the Zambian people.
He added that the work of the opposition was to provide checks and balances to the government on behalf of the citizens.
And Mr. Chipimo has also condemned political parties campaigning on tribal lines.
He said people of Zambia were one and as such, politicians should promote unity among citizens.
He stated that peace and love should be one thing which should pre-occupy the minds of the Zambian people.
