Zambia Army Commander Lt. General Dennis Sitali Alibuzwi says he is concerned about the increase in the pronouncements of tribal divisions perpetrated by some individuals in the country.

The Army Commander said it is important for Zambians not to embrace tribal divisions but rather embrace the One Zambia One Nation motto whose objective is to promote unity regardless of tribe.

On the remark by the Head of State, President Haikainde Hichilem that he would deploy the army if the police failed to do their work, Lt. General Alibuzwi said the Army stands ready to execute its mandate if called upon by the Head of state who is also Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces in Zambia.

The army Commander said this when he paid a courtesy call to Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia, Mrs. Rose Sakala.

The Commander is in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to attend an AU Specialized Technical Committee on Defense, Safety, and Security.

Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia, Mrs. Rose Sakala said tribal and ethnic conflicts have led to instability in some African countries.

She said Zambians must reject any elements meant to destabilize the peace and unity our forefathers fought for at a great cost.
