Paramount Chief Mpezeni says the Ngoni Royal Establishment and the people of Eastern Province will work with President-Elect Hakainde Hichilema.

Congratulating HH on his election as 7th republican President, Paramount Chief Mpezeni said HH was a President for the whole country.

He commended outgoing President Edgar Lungu for conceding defeat which will lead to the smooth transition of power.

“I am happy that there was no confusion. We are One Zambia, One Nation, he was chosen by the Zambians and we are going to work with him. I am happy that the former president conceded defeat. It’s a good thing for people to concede defeat in an election, it lessens tension,” he said.

Paramount Chief Mpezeni said this to reporters at his Ephendukeni palace today. – ZR


  1. Most Zambian chiefs behaved very badly during Edgar Lungu’s time. They acted contrary to the interests of their subjects by being partisan and being corrupt. They have made their positions irrelevant as they have lost the trust of their people.Mpezeni is one of them.

  2. I hope that the Nkosi yama Nkonsi and other Chiefs have learned a lesson. They should not involve themselves in politics but focus on their traditional affairs. It seems that so called brown envelops confuse hem hence the carless talk. One Chief was caught with pre marked ballots and beaten by his people. Such a chief should abdicate his throne.

  3. You may want to work with him now just because he is the president but that doesn’t mean he wants to work with you. You embarrassed cheap excuse of a chief.
