  1. THE CHALLENGE THAT LIES AHEAD FOR THE PERSON WHO WILL WIN THE PRESIDENTIAL BYE-ELECTIONS!

    This is the first election since Zambia got her independence that will leave more hearts that are crashed after the final results. The person who becomes president will have the greatest task more than any other president we have ever had. The challenge will be to unite the nation and lead to the healing of broken hearts. For this to be done, one cannot rule out the place of God in the leadership. God loves everyone in this country and it becomes important that more than pleasing and rewarding those who have worked tirelessly to see to it that a particular party wins the election that the leader will not forget to invite God to be part of the leading. May God give the next president wisdom to lead this great nation. GOD BLESS MOTHER ZAMBIA. MAY THE CHURCH BE OF GREAT HELP!
