Senior Chief Nkula of the Bemba people in Chinsali District has called on Chiefs to concentrate on developing their chiefdoms unlike involving themselves in partisan politics.
Chief Nkula says getting involved in Politics makes traditional leaders irrelevant to the country’s welfare.
He says any chief who engages in politics does NOT deserve to be a traditional leader.
And the Traditional Leader says the ‘One Zambia, One Nation’ motto should not just be chanted at Public events but should also be put into practice.
Chief Nkula said this when Members of the Commission of Inquiry into Voting Patterns and Electoral Violence, led by Commission member Owen Sichone paid a courtesy call on him at his palace.
And Professor SICHONE noted that peace is an important pre-requisite for development.
Meanwhile, the Commission of Inquiry into Voting Patterns and Electoral Violence has held its latest public sitting in Isoka District.
