Speaking to ANGOP, the tradition authority deemed it important to adopt transparency and approximation of the governance system to the citizens, with a view to conquering people’s trust and consolidating national unity.

King Mwene Mbandu III went on to say that the President’s motto “Let us correct what is wrong and improve what is good” may bring about positive results if the governmental authorities start listening more to the citizens and respecting their opinions.
