Lots of people could be seen singing and dancing on the streets after Zambian President Edgar Lungu officially conceded to opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema.
Initially, the president intended to challenge the result just the way Donald Trump did in the U.S by claiming that the election was stolen, but he later conceded saying:
“Based on the revelations issued at final results, I will comply with the constitutional provisions for a peaceful transition of power.”
“I would therefore like to congratulate my brother, the president-elect, His Excellency Mr Hakainde Hichilema, for becoming the seventh Republican President.”
Joseph Kalimbwe, who is one of the youth representatives said: “Young people gave us the vote. Four million young people between the ages of 18 to 24 registered to vote. It was a huge turnout and it was very personal to them. They want to ensure the mistakes of their parents were corrected. They have voted for our leader on basis he has better policies and ideas and can strengthen our state institutions.”
