President Lungu Will Attend National Dialogue – Amos Chanda
Following a series of conflicting statements and the exchange of some choice words between Amos Chanda and opposition members of the National Dialogue, he has now confirmed that President Lungu will attend the National Dialogue meeting on January 18th.
He re-iterated that the President is committed to the National Dialogue process and that he has already been engaging with Catholic Bishops and other church mother bodies to reach the most functional arrangement.
Mr Chanda said President Lungu is disappointed at stakeholders that have been trading insults in public over the dialogue process and wants the integrity of the process shielded from misrepresentation by stakeholders.
He said negatives such as the outcome of the December 28 2018 dialogue meeting that was aimed at maligning the Head of State should not be tolerated and must be avoided to allow for sincerity and transparency in the national dialogue process.
