Zambia’s image may be dented-warns German Ambassador

Germany Ambassador to Zambia Bernd Finke has warned that political violence was a threat to the country’s image as a peaceful nation.
Ambassador Finke cautioned that news on violence in Zambia is shared on news media very fast and may tarnish the image of the country.
He has called for quick action against perpetrators of political violence and stressed that the continued political violence should not only be condemned but acted upon swiftly in order to preserve the country’s peace and unity.
Ambassador Finke told Hot FM News that there was need for an unbiased approach from political leaders and the police in dealing with political violence.
Outgoing President Edgar Lungu has let loose his violent militias to intimidate Zambians ahead of the August 11 polls.
