President Edgar Lungu is happy that the date for the launch of the National Dialogue and Reconciliation process has been set.
Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda however urged the conveners to formally invite the President for the meeting.
Mr Chanda says the office has taken note of the dates through the media and will make a follow up to ensure that the President attends.
Mr Chanda told Journalists at State House that President Lungu is committed to the dialogue process as it will benefit the people.
He said the dialogue process needs to be taken seriously and should not be used to for political gain.
