Removing ‘tribe’ on NRC sick idea – Chief Munkonge

Chief Munkonge of Kasama says traditional leaders are very upset with Edgar Lungu’s intention to scrap off the tribe and origin of individuals on National Registration Cards (NRC).

Speaking at his palace when UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and his entourage visited him Sunday evening, the traditional leader said the suggestion is ill, unacceptable and will not work in Zambia.

He says origin of a person on their NRC is important as it gives traditional pride and identity to individuals.

The Chief revealed that he has spoken to about 15 other traditional leaders from the Province who have also refused the suggestion and have since planned to meet Lungu over the matter.
