Why should chiefs unite Zambians when the President is at the centre of tribalism? Lungu was the first in 2015 to say that bakachema can never hold the Presidency. Lungu has fired 58 young people from State House because they are Tongas, Lozis and NWPers. Let Lungu harvest the storm he started. He should not dump this problem on chiefs who are not paid to perform national duties.
