President Michael Sata has advised the opposition to seek sober forms of engagement with the government.
President Sata has further counselled the opposition political parties to cooperate with specific law enforcement agencies mandated with the responsibility of maintaining law and order as opposed to creating unnecessary tension.
This is according to a press statement issued by President Sata’s Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations, George Chellah made available to Breeze News.
President says that that government has noticed a strange appetite for aggression and attempts to create panic and despondency in people by a certain cluster of politicians within the opposition movement.
He however, says that government is wide awake to these low-priced political manoeuvres and are ready to handle any situation.
The Head of State says Government will not be derailed from its responsibility of safeguarding and preserving the peace the country has enjoyed over a long period of time.
The President says there is a lot that government and the opposition could do together for the benefit of the country, provided there is decency, sincerity and patriotism from both ends.
Mr. Sata says that as leaders, they should all strive to build a united, democratic and disciplined nation.
