His Worship, the Mayor of Chongwe Christopher Habeenzu has emphasized the need for members of the public to continue protecting themselves against the further spread of COVID-19 as they celebrate this festive season.
Mr. Habeenzu said COVID-19 cases have once again began to rise, therefore there is need to help prevent the further loss of life in this global pandemic.
He was speaking during his first official Christmas message as Mayor addressed to all residents of Chongwe District.
Mr. Habeenzu encouraged all Chongwe residents that have not yet been vaccinated to do so in order to help flatten the COVID-19 curve and stand a better chance at fighting the virus.
He further stated that it is important for all members of the District to remember that Zambia is a Christian nation, therefore we must uphold the Christian values of loving one another, forgiving those who have wronged us, practicing humility and respectfulness towards others, and helping the less fortunate.
The Chongwe Mayor added that he hopes this Christmas season will come with gratitude and tolerance for one another despite differences in ethnicity, tribe, religion and political affiliation.
He stated that as we celebrate God’s love for the world through the birth of Jesus Christ, we must also remember to enjoy responsibly in order to safely cross over to 2022 in good health.
