Governance Activist Maurice Malambo has observed that President Lungu has responded positively to the social and economic challenges that have hit the nation.
Mr. Malambo feels that the Head of State has unreservedly performed well in his one year of being in office despite coming into office at the time the nation was going through challenging moments.
Mr. Malambo says as for the challenges in the mining sector, developed countries like Australia has suffered set backs as more than seven mines have been shut down while Zambia has managed to keep these mines running despite job losses.
He says in the energy sector, despite prolonged hours of load shedding, the nation is better than countries such as Tanzania which have shut down some of their power stations.
The Governance Activist has also counseled the opposition not to criticize everything done by the party in government but give credit where it is due.
And Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) has commended President Edgar Lungu for the commitment he has shown towards God.
EFZ Executive Director Pukuta Mwanza says the love president Lungu has demonstrated towards God and his people can attract a blessing for the country.
Rev. Mwanza says the head of state has shown that he understand that on his own, he cannot run the country but need to put God first and also respect God’s people and learn from them.
He says leaders in the country should learn from President Lungu’s humility and let God’s will prevail in the country and also in their lives.
Rev. Mwanza stresses that Zambia is headed for a break through if its leaders will continue to show love for God and allow him to lead.
