Catholic Priest Fr Charles Chilinda has appealed to the UPND leadership to accept the election victory of President Edgar Lungu.
Fr Chilinda said in an interview that the UPND should accept the re-election of President Lungu because he was dully and legitimately elected as President.
He said the continued refusal by the UPND to accept President Lungu’s as Head of State is a recipe for anarchy.
Fr Chilinda said the UPND leadership is being Unchristian by failing to accept President Lungu’s victory.
“Even in our lives as Christian, we are commanded to respect our leaders because they are chosen by God. What the UPND is doing is Unchristian and they must stop because Zambians don’t want bloodshed,” Fr Chilinda said.
He has since challenged the UPND to accept President Lungu’s re-election because he was legitimately elected by Zambians.
