Sakwiba Praises Chief Mukuni for Standying By Sosala

Opposition United Liberal party (ULP) president Sakwiba Sikota says Chief Mukuni of the Toka Leya should be commended for the bravery he has exhibited to stand up for Henry Sosala as the rightful Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people.

Sikota says Chief Mukuni has raised valid points by stating that issues related to chiefs are the preserve for the traditional establishments in the country.

Sikota says this is also why it would be unwise for the patriotic front government to use the chief’s act to interfere in the affairs of traditional leaders as the act itself is archaic.

He says the legislation was introduced by colonial masters who wanted to control traditional establishments perceived to be problematic.

The ULP leader laments that the patriotic front government wants to use the archaic laws to interfere in the affairs of traditional leaders when the country is no longer under colonial rule.

Sikota has however implored other traditional leaders in the country to emulate Chief Mukuni.
