RB congratulates Lungu on peace

FORMER President Rupiah Banda has congratulated President Lungu and the people of Zambia on reaching another milestone on the political calendar in the successful struggle for freedom and peace on the continent.
In his Africa Freedom Day message, Mr Banda wishes the people of Zambia and the entire Africa joy and prosperity on the commemoration of the day, which falls today.
“The core reason for Zambia’s independence struggle, for which some of its heroes paid the ultimate price with their lives, was the right to vote,” he said in a statement issued by his deputy administrative assistant, Chibeza Mfuni, yesterday.
Mr Banda, who was Zambia’s President from 2008 to 2011, said this year’s Africa Freedom Day is special for Zambia as it falls less than three months from the August 11 general elections.
