Chief Zumwanda of Lundazi district has urged politicians to conduct decent campaigns ahead of next month’s general elections.
The Chief says that political violence being recorded in some parts of the country would destroy the image of the country.
Chief Zumwanda was speaking when Eastern Province coordinator for special team campaign for President Edgar Lungu, Lameck Mangani paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Lundazi.
He said politicians must remain peaceful and do everything within their powers to curtail the rise in political violence and tension in the country.
The traditional leader emphasised that nothing should be done by anybody to undermine the peace and tranquillity that currently prevails in the country.
And Mr Mangani who is former home affairs minister said that he was in the area to ask for votes for President Lungu and other Patriotic Front aspiring candidates.
He said the ruling party would strive hard to campaign based on the party manifesto which he said was clear.
Mr Mangani asked the traditional leader to assist in mobilising people to vote on poll day in an effort to avoid voter apathy
