Alliance for Good Governance, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) President Joseph Chileshe has appealed to all Zambians to avoid issuing statements to the outside world that may threaten the country’s much needed investment.
Mr. Chileshe said it is embarrassing to see how some Zambians have resorted to denting their own country’s image by issuing reckless statements which he said if not curtailed will adversely impact on the economy.
He stated that Zambians should be patriotic with their own country and learn to air their issues within the country unlike the current situation where some sections of society have a tendency of washing dirty linen in the public.
Mr. Chileshe further said Zambians should always strive to protect the integrity of the country by ensuring that certain pressing issues are tabled within.
He noted that Zambia is among the countries in the region that have offered a stable and conducive business environment which should be shielded at all cost.
Mr. Chileshe added that Zambians should put their country first by not issuing speculative statements.
“We need also to avoid discussing certain things that may injure the economy but ensure that some of the issues are tabled within the country.”
