“Their joy over free education, law, and order, decentralization program including Constituency Development Funds, coming jobs, and business opportunities could be seen. Our word was simply: We are your servants. We are working round the clock and we will walk this economic recovery journey together.

Zambia is getting better and will be better!”

Speaking during the induction ceremony for the Kamwala Adventist Youth 2022 at Kamwala SDA Church, President Hichilema said the body of Christ is one despite worshiping on different days.

He urged them to ensure they continue to influence all Zambians to work and live within the teachings of Jesus.

The President said the government is determined to better the lives of all citizens and that this can be seen through various initiatives taken such as the increased allocation of the Constituency Development Fund which will be equally taken to all constituencies.

The Head of State also called on the church to continue praying for those in leadership.

And Southern Zambia Union Conference President Vanny Munyumbwe praised President Hichilema for his insistence on upholding of the rule of law and ensuring that no one is above the law.

Dr. Munyumbwe further called on President Hichilema to make politics as a noble career that hinges on ideas and not name-calling and insulting language.

He said Zambians are wise enough to tell which candidate has the interest of the people at heart.

And Dr. Munyumbwe praised the government for taking positive steps to improve the lives of Zambians through free education from grades 1 to 12 and for reuniting couples that were separated through transfers.

Dr. Munyumbwe also thanked the government for the steps taken to tackle unemployment and also harmonizing salaries for those that have upgraded their qualifications.
