Statement On The Role Of Opposition In A Democracy

  • Zambian DNA laments over the opposition’s perpetual blame game on those in power instead of providing alternative solutions to the country’s challenges.
    We are of the view that any credible opposition political party should strive to provide alternative solutions to  challenges the country is face with unlike the current scenario where opposition are criticizing Government without  offering any credible solutions.
    We are appealing to other opposition political parties to emulate their counterpart, Green Party’s Peter Sinkamba whose brilliant idea on production of marijuana for medicinal and export purposes is receiving serious attention by Government.
    This proves that President Edgar Lungu is a listening leader who is ready to accommodate brilliant views from either a well- meaning opposition party leader or any ordinary citizen.
    It is unfortunate that some opposition political parties and Civil Society Organization s (CSOs) have chosen to tarnish the country’ s image to the international community instead of providing alternative solutions to the country they are aspiring to govern once given a chance by the Zambian people.
    We are alive to the fact that Zambia is bigger than all of us,and as such working together as a nation we can overcome all the challenges the country is faced with.
