Patriotic Front aligned political scientist Alex 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.
He says Zambia is held in higher esteem on the African continent owing to peace that has prevailed for over 48 years.
Dr. Ng’oma 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.
On Thursday, a police officer was allegedly assaulted by suspected UPND cadres in Lusaka.
