President Lungu is credited for handing over power peacefully

Zambia’s Outgoing President Edger Lungu was this morning booed by some members of the public that made part of audience at the stadium set for inauguration of the newly elected president Hakainde Hichilema.

Mr. Edgar Lungu was making entry to the stage with his daughter Tasila Lungu Mwansa where he was expected to hand over the mantle of power when the noise of people booing him was heard.

For the past few days, Tasila Lungu has been seen as a supportive daughter to his father after he lost the August 12 General Elections.

On Sunday, she was again seen accompanying the former President for mass at Regina Pecis Parish.

Meanwhile clergy men have condemned the booing of the former president saying despite leaving office he deserves respect.

Grace of God International Ministries Overseer Bishop Harry Mwambula said Elections should not let the people forget who they are as children of God.

Bishop Mwambula said the Bible is clear on respecting adults regardless of their political, social or religious standing.

He called on fellow Zambians to desist from such behaviors saying it portrays a wrong picture to the outside world.
