Advocates for National Development Democracy -ANDD- has commended President Edgar Lungu for displaying quality leadership in the midst of challenging times.

ANDD Executive Director Samuel Banda says President Lungu has managed to keep the economy going despite Covid-19 challenges.

Banda says democracy and development has faired relatively well as investments by the PF government are paying off in the health and infrastructure sectors.

He said this in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka on Wednesday.

Banda has since encouraged Chishimba Kambwili, Kelvin Bwalya Fube and others that left the PF to consider returning to the party.

He however encouraged dissenting views to achieve a vibrant democracy.

Banda said instead of breaking away to form splinter parties because of differences, members of the party should tolerate each other’s different views as it is what defines democracy.
