God intervened during August 2021 general elections-President Hichilema

Headlines God intervened during August 2021 general elections-President Hichilema

President Hakainde Hichilema has attributed the success of the August 2021 general elections to God’s grace and mercies.

President Hichilema says the electoral journey had a lot of challenges at every stage of the process but that God intervened.

ZANIS reports that President Hichilema was speaking during the national ecumenical thanksgiving prayers for peaceful elections, held at the Cathedral of the holy cross in Lusaka yesterday , stating that Zambians have a reason to thank God for the peace that characterised the whole election period.

The Head of state noted that the Lord has brought the country this far and that he will surely carry it through going forward.

Mr Hichilema called on members of the public to value and cherish the peace the country is enjoying to achieve economic development and stability.

“I have not heard of any country that has managed to achieve economic development in the midst of violence, wars or instability,” he added.

President Hichilima said church leaders should cooperate with the government to ensure peace is maintained in the country, adding that peace is not only the absence of wars but the absence of poverty, joblessness and literacy.

“The new dawn government came into service under difficult circumstances. We have a bigger responsibility to unite the country. All Zambians will feel that they have equal opportunities,” he said.

The Head of state has pledged to work with all churches and that the government will ensure all churches have space to operate and worship freely.

“The Church should not hesitate to call on us, to advise and challenge us because the church is a tool of God and responds to divine mission as well as provides cheques and balances,” he said.

Speaking at the same event, Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia (EFZ) Board Chairperson, Paul Mususu said there is a lot for Zambians to be grateful to God.

Bishop Mususu said the former President Edgar Lungu’s willingness to help with the smooth transition is one of the reasons to be thankful.

“We do have needs, but now we need to say thank you. Even when we have lost, it is a requirement of God to give thanks,” he said.

And Zambia Conference of Catholic Bishops (ZCCB) Vice president, Charles Kasonde said the new government in place is a sign of God’s power.

Rev. Kasonde, who is also Solwezi Bishop, called on political leaders to always look up to God to avoid failing.

  1. Indeed God intervened by not allowing that gang of criminals in PF to continue governing this blessed nation. We removed the most brutal regime the country has ever had. Never again fellow Zambians should we allow tyrants like Edgar Lungu to rule this country again

  3. Bally must realize that there are people still in mourning and others are still being beaten by his supporters. Not saying anything about that is as good as burying his head in the sand. The families of the deceased will be comforted if the clergy mention their names at gatherings like this. Jackson Kungo wasn’t an animal and he wasn’t the first one to die such a painful death. There have been others that died at the hands of both the UPND and the PF, the violent Siamese twins. God has always been on both sides, he can’t favour one side alone. What matters now is how you respond to the politically instigated violence. We expect more from you than these empty pronouncements. The Police have dockets of Zambians that were murdered during General & by-elections that some officers have been…

  4. I think the youths were in fierce mode… they saw and heard enough of the violence , corruption, ethnic divisions and it was time to end the tyrannical rule of Ecl .

  5. Nothing unites and brings the youths together except a peaceful atmosphere free from ruthless thugs/cadres, a bottle of beer and or a shot of whisky plus a pound of indoor marijuana, not the tribal divisions that we saw lungu championing,,, the man lacked every attributes of a good leader.

  6. AM I MISSING SOMETHING ??
    CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHERE HAS GOD INTERVENED ANYWHERE IN THIS TROUBLED WORLD
    YET WE REFERRING TO HIM ? SHOULDN’T WE THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA BE PRAISED AND THANKED INSTEAD

  7. PF prayers not answered. PF pastors were punished for stealing my $50 to build “National House of prayers”.
    PF fasting and abstinence from $ex was for nothing. Kekekeke.

  8. What the youth thought is now being diluted by reality.
    In this wait narrative, the impatient youths are now already talking.
    What they missed was the waiting part.
    What they head was the after inauguration. After a week lies etc.
    Millennials are a tricky fit to buy; more like the slimmest fit.
    Ouch!
    Wait, wait, niggaz, youths are fvc&ing impatient. Damn it!
