The MMD has urged Zambians to carefully scrutinise candidates who are seeking elective public office in the general election.
The former ruling party says leaders perpetrating violence should be shunned.
And the former ruling party has welcomed President Edgar Lungu’s call for national prayers on peace and reconciliation before the country holds elections on August 11.
Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka, MMD National Secretary Raphael Nakachinda also called on the opposition UPND to seek dialogue with the Police whenever they have grievances instead of engaging in physical confrontations.
And welcoming President Lungu’s call for national prayers, Mr Nakachinda appealed to Zambians to support the initiative and attend the event so that the country holds peaceful elections.
Mr. Nakachinda said the national prayers will unite the country and serve as a moment for introspection.
