Some politicians wanted to wreck havoc at Kuomboka – ELBy Mukosha Funga on 10 Apr 2017
President Edgar Lungu says he is glad that some “pockets of politicians” failed to wreck havoc at the Kuomboka Ceremony in Mongu on Sunday.
And President Lungu says he will always attend church even if some politicians choose to misinterpret his faith.
Speaking to journalists on arrival at City Airport last evening, the Head of State said he was happy that some politicians failed to wreck havoc at the event.
“After this ceremony, the people of Western Province are more united than ever before. And the fact that we tried to make the ceremony devoid of politics, it went very well and I think that’s the way it should be. Although there were some pockets of politicians who wanted to bring chaos and politicize the event and see how much havoc they can wreck but believe you me, Zambia has a history or working together and uniting on a cause. And most of these ceremonies bring people together and this Kuomboka system, whatever you may want to call it, is one unifying factor for the people of Western Province, all of them,” President Lungu said.
President Lungu also assured Mongu residents before departure for Lusaka that he would continue working with the Litunga.
“We have put shame on those who thought that the Kuomboka will fail. We have shamed those who thought the people here are not united. We are all united and I think we shall continue being so and working together. I will continue working with the Litunga. There are people who want to take advantage of historical patterns and disturb the nation by dividing us, we are one Zambia one Nation. I know there are people who came from Lusaka, who came to divide us, but they failed. I thank God that we are very vigilant here in Western Province,” he said.
And President Lungu said he would continue going to church despite being misunderstood by some politicians.
“I came to Mongu for the Kuomboka and this morning I should have left but I chose to come here to congregate before I go. I know some politicians will try to misinterpret this but I will continue coming to the House of the Lord,” President Lungu said.
He also advised those seeking political office to seek God first.
Meanwhile, President Lungu asked people to pray for leaders so that they understood that they were serving because God willed it.
“Pray for us leaders so that we know that we are only in office because the Lord God Almighty willed it to be so. To respect the church and even for those with political ambitions they should seek God,” said President Lungu.
After the church service, President Lungu and his wife Esther joined hundreds of tourists and members of the Baroste Royal Establishment for a luncheon at the Limulunga Royal Palace marking the end of the Kuomboka.
