British High Commissioner to Zambia Fergus Cochrane-Dyet says all Zambian citizens must respect and recognize Edgar Lungu as head of state, according to QFM.
Cochrane-Dyet said the motorcade incidence that happened in western province appears very provocative.
He has noted that the UK along with the rest of the international community has recognized the Zambian government, hence the need for all Zambian citizens to do the same.
Cochcrane-Dyet has stated that even the queen herself rapidly congratulated President Edgar Lungu as the President of Zambia, and that UK looks forward to working in partnership with Zambia until the next elections.
He has since stated that the best response to political divisiveness is more dialogue and more openness.
Cochrane said this during celebrations to mark the Queen’s birthday in Lusaka today.
Before being dumped in Zambia, Cochrane-Dyet was expelled from Malawi for misconduct.
