Stop malicious and evil debate on President’s health says SACCORD

Filed under: Statements |
bcThe Southern African Center for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (SACCORD) says Zambians should desist from engaging in malicious debate on the health of President Michael Sata.

SACCORD Executive Director Boniface Cheembe has implored Zambians to develop a sober attitude towards debates centering on the health of the President.

Mr. Cheembe says the Head of State can fall sick just like any other human being and that the best people can do when such a thing happens is to be sympathetic.

Mr. Cheembe adds that it is important that government tries by all means to clear the unnecessary speculation building up on the health of the President by embracing transparency.

He further states that SACCORD is also of the view that whatever information government divulges to the public on the President’s wellbeing is what should form the basis for public opinion.

Mr. Chembe has emphasized that this discussion should however not be for the purpose of maligning the Head of State.
