YOU RAN A GOOD RACE
Hon. Sunday Chanda writes;
When history about your Presidency is written, it shall be said of one Edgar Chagwa Lungu and how he transformed Zambia for the better – the roads, schools, hospitals, universities, airports, bumper harvests in the agriculture sector, telecommunication towers, social cash transfer, etc.
Zambia tefyo yali ifi! Zambia has never looked this beautiful! It’s all because of you!
Today you rose to the occasion yet again as the great Statesmanship that you are, ensured a smooth transition of leadership until the new President His Excellency Mr Hakainde Hichilema was sworn-in.
Irrespective of our differences, Patriotic Front will accord President Hichilema the respect he deserves as Head of State. On this score, we find it distasteful that those of our brothers and sisters who gathered at Heroes Stadium for the inauguration ceremony thought it prudent to boo you before other Foreign Heads of State and the international community. (We call it ubututu) but not even that will take away from the fact that you’re a great leader. We therefore expect the UPND administration to condemn today’s booing, its bad for our image as a country to the rest of the World!
Rest as much as you can. (Necipela inkula cilatusha).
I am personally very proud of you Mr President!
Hon. Sunday Chilufya Chanda, MP
