Government Reflects As Zambia Prepares To Turn 50

From Zambia Post

Secretary to the Cabinet Dr. Roland Msiska has called for a critical reflection on the vision of the founding fathers as Zambia attains 50 years of independence next year. Dr. Msiska, who is in Luapula Province for inspection of selected districts, made the call in Mansa at Henry Courtyard when he addressed heads of government departments during a dinner hosted in his honor.

He said it was important to have the burden of the country’s founding fathers reflected in the national symbols like the National Anthem.

Dr. Msiska said one of the key things he had seen in President Michael Sata was his focus on how Zambians must restore their dignity as individuals and collectively as a nation. He said it was time to start focusing more on the collective strengths as a nation as opposed to weaknesses.

Msiska called for unity of purpose, conviction and desire to go in one direction without splitting on regional, party lines or other factors because the founding fathers saw the importance of unity as a nation.
