President Hakainde Hichilema has led Service Chiefs and Diplomats accredited to Zambia in laying wreaths at the freedom statue to commemorate the Africa Freedom Day.
The President and his entourage arrived at the freedom Statue in Lusaka this morning at about 09:30 hours.
And in his homily, themed Spiritual Freedom, Zambia Air Force (ZAF) Deputy Director Chaplaincy, Colonel Malcolm Nyambe, said that freedom in the spirit is required for God to reveal what he has for the people of Zambia and the rest of Africa.
Col. Nyambe said Zambians survival depends on the people of Zambia having faith in God and in His will for the country.
He noted that the spiritual freedom that Zambia has, has enabled the country to attain political freedom.
” With the political freedom that we have we are no longer where we used to be. We are now able to make choices without being under pressure and we can freely choose our Presidents and other leaders,” he said.
The Colonel further urged Zambians to guard jealously the freedom that the country has enjoyed over the years.
He also advised the nation to remain a resounding example to other countries and to continue been looked at as a haven of peace.
Just to advise that Africa Freedom Day must never be a day of releasing prisoners. The government can release prisoners at its mercy and that is okay but not on Africa freedom day, the two are not linked. There is absolutely no link between the modern day inmate and Africa Freedom day . Lets start correcting these inherent wrong things which have been going on for years unless you do not know the meaning of Africa Freedom Day. And this is not to suggest that you should not release some prisoners, you should release them but not on this day which is meant for something else
Politicians have uselessed Africa
This is an insult to our freedom fighters. Hh is a sellout and very unpatriotic
@Given Please educate me on why it is inappropriate to release prisoners on this day? I dont know whether they should be released on any other day and I hope they dont release repeat offenders. With Zambia’s unemployment we may just be releasing them into more crime
Did HH invite the opposition to this occasion?
MR GIVEN WHICH DAY WOULD U LIKE FOR THE PRISONERS TO BE RELEASED ,AND TELL THE MEANING OF AFRICAN FREEDOM DAY
