President Edgar Lungu has expressed gratitude to the people of Lukashya and Mwansabombwe constituencies for voting for Patriotic Front candidates in yesterday’s parliamentary by-elections.

President Lungu has also congratulated George Chisanga and Kabaso Kampampi respectively for scooping the seats.

He said the victories in the two seats show that the people there believe in the Patriotic Front government’s developmental agenda.

The President has since advised the two new Members of Parliament not to let the people down.

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
