MMD on the Copperbelt has joined many other organizations and institutions in different parts of Zambia in congratulating President Edgar Lungu for scooping the August 11 presidential elections.
Provincial secretary Obby Mwansa said President Lungu’s victory was a loud and clear voice from the people of Zambia because of his humility and impressive leadership qualities.
Mr. Mwansa said Zambians should embrace each other and always avoid character assassination to promote peace and unity in the nation.
The provincial secretary also appealed to losing political parties like the UPND to support and respect the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) because it was the only autonomous body mandated to conduct elections in Zambia.
Mr. Mwansa said the ECZ required support from stakeholders for them to remain relevant as they executed their duties in a professional way.
“As MMD on the Copperbelt we are excited with the bouncing back of President Lungu because the Patriotic Front is our cooperating partner in the political arena,” said Mr Mwansa.
And Mr. Mwansa said Dr Nevers Mumba should not mislead the people by claiming that he was the president of MMD.
