Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo says from now onwards, he will dedicate his life to ending political violence.
In a short statement posted on his Facebook page, Lusambo, who is also Kabushi PF member of parliament, said Zambians had a duty to safeguard their country by saying no to political violence.
“In Pursuit of a Violence-Free 2021 elections, my brothers and sisters, we all have to do our best towards ensuring that our beloved country does not experience any violence before, during and after the 2021 elections,” Lusambo stated.
He added that having seen the first-hand effects of political violence, he would now dedicate his remaining life in politics towards ending the vice.
“We all have a duty to safeguard this long-cherished period. As political players, we have an even greater duty to stop political violence. As someone who has seen first-hand the effects of political violence, I will dedicate my life in politics to ensuring that we end the culture of violence in our politics. We can stop violence by simply saying no! We only have One Zambia, One Nation and we should safeguard it for tomorrow’s generation,” stated Lusambo.
