“We are aware that some of you supported different political parties in the just ended elections and now this is the time to work. Avoid engaging in partisan politics and focus and delivering to the expectations of government,” Lusambo said.

He said the PF government remains committed to fostering unity and peace across the country.

Lusambo said Zambians should not allow politics to divide the nation.

“As government, we remain resolute to fostering unity and peace across the country. We are one people and thus politics should not in any way divide us. The One Zambia One nation motto will most certainly remain our national heritage and we must cherish it,” he said.

He added, “Zambia is a Christian nation which is governed by Christian values. This can be observed from the peace and tranquility experienced during the just ended 2016 general elections. I am glad to boast that the peace loving Zambians have once again embraced the spirit of unity and love for one another despite different political affiliations.”

Lusambo also stated that government will always rely on the knowledge and wisdom from traditional leaders in governing the country in a bid to sustain the peace and tranquility that the country has enjoyed since independence.

  2. Lusambo is hallucinating. The Election is not over until the Concourt Petetion is properly disposed off. The Petetion is very much alive until its heard. HH is the Winner of this election but Lungu stole the vote. The Petetion Hearing will prove this. That is the truth and nothing else.
