Electoral division is both democratic and healthy for sane human society. We should all celebrate our opportunity and right to vote a candidate of our choice.
The frequency of elections in Zambia should provide us an accelerated democratic growth. We should see this positive coming out of our losses and sorrow because of the demise, first of all, of the late President of the Republic of Zambia, Dr Levy P Mwanawasa, SC, MHSRIP, and then that of His Excellency, the late Mr Michael C Sata, MHSRIP.
Electoral Division must be understood to be temporarily. When the final vote has been cast, and results are announced, as in previous years since independence in 1964, we must all gravitate towards one another in national unity in the spirit of nationhood, namely, “One Zambia, One Nation” as we all “Stand and sing of Zambia”, politically and democratically “Proud and free”.
Let us return to unity after the electoral division of 2014/2015, as a “Land of joy and unity, and all the positives and responsibilities citizenship and family call for.
We look forward to the announcement of the elected person, and can’t wait to celebrate our completeness as people with a leader in the Presidency.
Lastly, my sincere gratitudes go to all participating Presidential candidates and to the Acting Republican President, Dr Guy Scott.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon Zambia and its people. Amen.
