Dr Chishimba Kambwili, the Roan MP, has welcomed back Miles Sampa to the Patriotic Front.
Sampa, who went in to the August 11 elections, as an alliance partner with UPND has finally come off the woods to congratulate President Edgar Lungu for winning the polls.
The election is, however, still being challenged in court and Sampa’s message is seen as an endorsement of the winning candidate.
Dr Kambwili is delighted to learn about Sampa’s return.
“Thank you for your warm congratulations towards the president elect, the man of action, the people’s choice Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
“We are patiently waiting to start work and move the country forward. However we respect the courts and due process … When God says yes … Nobody can say no,” Dr Kambwili says
BELOW IS THE STATEMENT MILES SAMPA ISSUED
I note with sadness the acrimonious divisions and anxiety that has gripped the nation following the just ended Presidential and general elections. As leaders we need to come in and promote unity in diversity. The election has now passed and campaigns are over. The leader has emerged and for development, peace and unity; we need to support that leader.
As in any competition, for instance in the game of football, there can only be one winner at the end of 90 minutes when the referee blows the final whistle.
In the past 15 years, I have participated actively in all our general elections. I have been part of a team that has lost some and won some. At all times and regardless of any perceived disputes, I have learnt to move on once the final whistle has been blown in view of the bigger picture and for the sake of the over 15 million Zambians.
As leaders, it is paramount that we consider the welfare of all Zambians we wish to serve before anything else.
I may have had my views pre Election day, but what matters in this Post Election era is peace and unity.
the Bible teaches us, Leaders are chosen by God and there is a time for everything. Consequently, I choose to acknowledge, respect and support the re-election of President Edgar Chagwa Lungu. This is now time for healing the nation through reconciliation and forgiveness so that the President can effectively serve Zambians.
It is clear that the nation needs peace and unity regardless of diverse political views. I will play my role as a unifying factor and travel across the Country to preach unity and peace.
There can only be one President at a time and it is incumbent upon all of us to honour and respect the Presidency.
I therefore congratulate and wish President Edgar Chagwa Lungu and the Vice President Inonge Wina a successful 5 year term.
May God bless Zambia.
