Mr. Halwabala said President Banda became a beacon of peace after losing the general elections in 2011 as he conceded defeat wholeheartedly.
“On 12TH August 2021, President Banda facilitated democratically and handed over power which brought the elected President Hakainde Hichilema together with Edgar Lungu respectively” Mr. Halwabala said.
