The Sothern African Centre for Constructive Resolution of Dispute (SACCORD) has asked government to provide a clear roadmap on how to handle the issues raised by the Barotse National Council.
SACCORD Executive Director Oscar Tembo noted that the issues raised are real adding that it is important for government and all stakeholders to see them as issues that have confronted the country and should therefore find an amicable solution to address them.
He said government can greatly help in resolving the issue by providing political direction on this matter.
Mr Tembo said this in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today.
He asked President Michael Sata to cut short his holiday in India to come and quickly give a direction on the issue.
He pointed out that Sata understands the issues which were also brought out in the report of the commission of inquiry in the Mongu riots and presented to him earlier this year.
Mr Tembo said that Sata should he makes his position on the matter quickly.
He has also called for a non-confrontational way of resolving the problem saying embracing dialogue was key.
