First republican President Kenneth Kaunda has been cautioned to be wary that he will leave a massive problem if he continues being mute amidst heightened tribal divisions in Zambia.
Dr. Kaunda is being encouraged to share the wisdom he was using to unite Zambians during his tenure as Head of State to the current crop of leaders in the country.
The opposition Alliance for Democracy and Development (ADD) has particularly called on Dr. Kaunda to come on board in resolving the raging issue of the Barotseland Agreement of 1964.
ADD President Charles Milupi says in view of the fact Dr. Kaunda is the only alive of the three signatories to the Barotseland Agreement, is the right person that can give an interpretation on the issue.
Mr. Milupi says much as it is difficult in the African set up for a young person to give counsel to elder people like Dr. Kaunda, he is of the view that when one has had the privilege to serve in the highest office of the land such a privilege is bestowed by the nation.
He has told Qfm News in an interview that this means that the greatest service of such an individual ought to be always to the nation and not the government of the day.
The ADD president says such an individual, as is the case for Dr. Kaunda and Mr. Rupiah Banda, is supposed to be reflecting on the views of the nation.
He states that especially that whatever benefits a former Head of State has worked for these are his or her rights and no government can take away such benefits.
Mr. Milupi advised that former Heads of State should therefore not make themselves servants to the governments of the day just because of fear that they will not get their benefits.
