OPPOSITION UPND president Hakainde Hichilema says he has forgiven Shalom Ministries Apostle Sunday Sinyangwe for prophesizing that the opposition leader will not see victory in 2021.
Hichilema on his Facebook write-up also appealed to the nation to accept Sinyangwe’s apology and pray for him.
He said instead of engaging in debates of destiny which no once has control over except God, he would rather focus on the challenges which the nation is currently faced with.
“We would like to state that we hold no grudge against him and in fact we have forgiven him from the bottom of our heart. We have no authority on earth to exact revenge. That is the preserve of our God the almighty. We would like to appeal to the Nation to accept the apology from our brother Apostle Sunday Sinyangwe and pray for him,” Hichilema appealed.
“The country is currently faced with many challenges and we would want to preoccupy ourselves with offering hope and solutions to our people than engaging ourselves in debates of destiny which we have no control over.”

UPND both individually and collectively cannot unseat the ruling party, Davies Mwila says
PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila says the continued winning of ward elections in the UPND perceived strongholds is a sign that the opposition, both individually and collectively cannot unseat the ruling party.
In a statement, Mwila said in the recent local government by-elections, PF has won ten (10) Wards and that eight (8) of these were in the heart of the opposition UPND.
These recent victories by the PF including those ones in UPND strongholds include some of the following: Nakanya Ward of Nalikwanda, Western Province; Chabale Ward in Serenje, Central Province; Lobufu Ward in North Western Province; Nyoka Ward in North Western Province; Silumbu Ward in Sesheke, Western Province; Imusho Ward in Sioma, Western Province; and Nangweshi Ward in Sioma, Western Province among others,” Mwila said.
He urged the party structures to cement the aforementioned gains in the UPND strongholds, while continuing their efforts to replicate similar results elsewhere.
And Mwila said the continued winning of ward elections in the UPND strongholds is not a fluke but it has become a pattern.
