  1. We are waiting. It is important that our election are valency free and also important is that as people we must show remorse so that we cultivate a culture of debating issues without violence.
    This should be a big lesson to all those who have taken election as a means to an end.
    Yes, we need someone to represent people because all of us Zambians (18M) can not be in Parliament.
    We must love our country by promoting peace through valency free elections.
