PRESIDENT Banda on February 18 celebrated his 74th birthday at State House.
Mr Banda said he was deeply touched by the gesture from his members of staff, who surprised him with a birthday cake and a present.
He said he appreciated their commitment to work because the staff did not only work for State House but the nation as a whole.
Chief analyst for press and public relations Charles Kachikoti said it was important to acknowledge God at all times.
Mr Kachikoti, who quoted Proverbs 5 and 6, advised the President to seek assurance in the Lord, reports the Daily Mail.
And chief of staff Austin Sichinga wished Mr Banda God’s blessings as Zambia holds tripartite elections this year.
