    Congratulations your Excellency. I love your Godly principles. But “check out” for those trying to disturb our peace in this country. We can not afford to live in division. It’s too late now for we are already one. May the Almighty GOD continue to guide you in this enormous task in Jesus Name. Gratitude to the Church in Zambia for the ceaseless prayers before and during elections. Please do not relax least the enemy takes advantage of your relaxation. To ECZ, it was not easy but you did your best. Keep it up with your credibility.

    Why wasn’t the percentage not made public to avoid queries.coz all we know is its more than 50% how?its not everybody who is able to culculate the percentage plz inform the pipo properly.on the referendum the sensitisation wasn’t good pipo never knew about it they were not explained to properly so there is no need to blame the ignorant Zambian out there but the stake holder who indirectly never agreed with the content.
