OPPOSITION Democratic Assembly (DA) president Maxwell Mwamba has called on political parties to work towards uniting the people of Zambia.
Mr Mwamba said tribal elements in some political parties in Zambia had led to divisions among the people of Zambia.
He said that some political parties were campaigning on tribal lines to win elections in some parts of the country.
“I am disappointed that some opposition leaders are using their tribes to win elections in some parts of the country,” he said in Ndola at the weekend.
Mr Mwamba, whose party has its head office in Luanshya on the Copperbelt, said his team was striving to unite the nation by recognising that Zambia was a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society.
He said Zambia had a diverse cultural heritage and advised political parties not to incline themselves to a particular tribal grouping.
He said DA was a party of integrity which based its manifesto on a democratic leadership by advocating respect and equality for all tribes in Zambia.
Mr Mwamba said his party was ready for the 2016 tripartite elections and that he was confident of scooping the presidential seat.
He said the party had mobilised all materials to be used in campaigns for the 2016 presidential elections.
Mr Mwamba said he had already bought campaign materials from China which included branded cell phones, chitenge materials, posters, shirts and caps, among others.
