Sata continues bickering with Bemba chiefs

LUSAKA, Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – His Excellency, Mr. Michael Chilufya Sata, President

of the Republic of Zambia, has advised Mr. Henry Sosala to act respectably and desist from

engaging in actions that are at variance with the law.

The Head of State guided Mr. Sosala to seek sober forms of engagement with the government through the Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs if he is aggrieved.

“It’s a monumentally unwise deed for Mr. Sosala to resort to desperate measures like the

ones we have witnessed lately over a clear-cut issue. Let him know that his low-priced manoeuvres are an exercise in futility,” President Sata said. “As a government, it’s our incontestable responsibility to respect and uphold our customs or traditions by ensuring that confusion does not take root in the management of chiefs and traditional affairs.”

And President Sata warned that the government will not entertain persons threatening to

harm Chiefs and Traditional Affairs minister Professor Nkandu Luo.
