Disgraced UNZA lecturer Alex Mwamba Ng’oma has observed that the turbulence in the country’s political system has the potential to dent Zambia’s image to the international community.
Ngoma was in 2011 caught on camera attempting to steal ballot papers in South Africa.
He says Zambia is held in higher esteem on the African continent owing to peace that has prevailed for over 48 years.
Ng’oma who is was expelled from Foundation for democratic Process (FODEP) as president says there is need for all political stakeholders to have a sense of responsibility towards the welfare of the country.
He says politicians must live above partisan politics and provide solutions to the challenges which the country is currently facing.
The political scientist has since condemned acts of violence in the country’s politics and reiterates his call on leaders to take a leading role in fostering peace and unity.
Ng’oma was speaking in an interview with Qfm news.
On Thursday, a PF police officer was allegedly assaulted by suspected UPND cadres in Lusaka.
