The ZCID-PF led Summit that sat for two days in Lusaka has adjourned and will reconvene on Monday.

The main opposition UPND which is key to the dialogue boycotted the event saying it was ruling party driven.

The Summit however went ahead mainly attended by small parties without representation in Parliament.

Giving an update, ZCID Board member Sean Tembo said the event recorded 98 percent attendance.

“On the second and final day of the National Democracy Stakeholders Summit, ZCID recorded an attendance of 197 out of the total 200 or so delegates that were invited,” Tembo stated in an update.

The Summit has since been adjourned to Monday next week, tentatively, when delegates will reconvene to validate the resolutions of the Summit.

“Overall, we see this first step of the national dialogue process as a great success. All delegates who honored the invitation to the NDSS must be applauded for their selfless contribution to the establishment of a mechanism to resolve political conflict in our great nation Zambia, now and in future,” Tembo said.

He said for those that failed to attend the NDSS, for one reason or the other, they are urged to fully participate in future engagements of this national dialogue process.
