“As Commander-in-Chief, I salute our gallant forces for executing this operation with dedication and precision. As a government, we will continue using all the resources at our disposal to safeguard the country’s peace and security,” President Sata said.
“In view of the fact that peace has been restored in Luano Valley, I encourage my brothers and sisters to put the traumatic past behind, get back, live and work hard to create a better Zambia for all.”
