Election Day

Tomorrow morning when you wake up (Tuesday Morning) Zambia will be voting for their next president. This is a highly controversial election this time and many people dislike the current president, Banda. In fact it was controversial how he got into office the first time. They believe he will rig the elections for his favor. There are discussions about riots and other things that might happen if he wins. His opponent Sata is also a rather powerful man.

Banda:

Sata:

To give you an idea of how elections run in Zambia here is a photo of the ballots for the country being shipped in an open bed truck on the streets 10 days ago. If you can imagine there is alot of room for corruption.

We ask you to pray for peaceful elections and all of our staff and partners to be safe.

We also pray for the leadership in Zambia.

Thanks!
