National dialogue should be inclusive – NDC
By Staff Reporter
NATIONAL Democratic Congress (NDC) Central Province youth chairman Delkins Bwalya has called for an all-inclusive national dialogue as it resumes on Friday.
Bwalya observed that the national dialogue was not about individual political parties but that it was for concerned ordinary Zambians.
“The national dialogue is not about UPND or the PF or indeed presidents of these two political parties. The national dialogue is aimed at ensuring that there’s reconciliation among political parties and ordinary citizens,” Bwalya said.
“Therefore, this dialogue should involve all political players; it should involve president Elias Chipimo, president Hakainde Hichilema, President Edgar Lungu, president Sean Tembo, president Mike Mulongoti and all political players.”
And Bwalya hopes that the national dialogue meeting would not be marred by self-centredness by participating stakeholders.
“We would also want to call upon all delegates and facilitators to the national dialogue to put their personal interests aside but put the interests of Zambians first if the whole exercise is to yield positive results. Delegates to this national dialogue should not be self-centred,” said Bwalya.
“People should understand that this national dialogue is aimed at ensuring that there is reconciliation, peace and unity; not only among political players but among all Zambians.”
