Paramount chief Chitimukulu Mwinelubemba Kanyanta Manga II has urged Zambians to embrace peace and unity in the aftermath of last week’s general elections.
Chief Chitimukulu said the peace that characterized the elections should continue even after the polls.
He has since praised electorates countrywide for remaining peaceful and calm during the elections.
And the Mwinelubemba has observed that the recent general elections were conducted in a free and fair manner thereby rendering them credible.
He however said political parties opposing the outcome of the polls are at liberty to exercise their democratic right to seek legal guidance.
Meanwhile, Paramount chief Chitimukulu has expressed confidence that the Patriotic Front (PF) administration will efficiently complete the on-going developmental programmes following the re-election of President Edgar Lungu.
He is hopeful that more projects aimed at developing the country and improving the welfare of citizens will be undertaken during PF’s new five year mandate.
He has since congratulated President Lungu on his re-election.
The Mwinelubemba said this when newly elected Malole Constituency Member of Parliament Christopher Yaluma called on him at his palace in Mungwi district yesterday.
And Mr. Yaluma thanked the traditional leadership for playing a key role in ensuring that peace is upheld during the election period.
