Zambian elections a truimph!

From an Atta reporter in Zambia:

There was some anxious waiting, some inevitable controversy, some reports of protests in the towns – but we now have the results of our tri-partite elections. After 20 years in power – MMD have listened to the people, bowed out and handed over the reins to new President Michael Chilufya Sata of the Patriotic Front ,the 5th President of Zambia .

Outgoing President Rupiah Banda said in his farewell speech :
"MY GENERATION, THE GENERATION OF THE INDEPENDENCE STRUGGLE - MUST NOW GIVE WAY TO NEW IDEAS, IDEAS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY”

He was gracious in defeat and the elections were free and fair. We have just watched the inauguration on TV. The sight of outgoing President Rupiah Banda together with the First Republican President, Dr Kenneth Kaunda, accompanying the President Elect to the stand to be sworn in, surrounded by tens of thousands of cheering onlookers, was something to behold mbians are today extremely proud that this country is beacon of democracy and peace in an otherwise troubled world.All Zambians are today extremely proud that this country is a beacon of democracy and peace in an otherwise troubled world. We thank the outgoing President and wish President Sata all the best in his new role.
