Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

join me in con­vey­ing to you our most sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions fol­low­ing your vic­tory in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tions held in your coun­try on De­cem­ber 30, 2018,” he said.

“Your elec­tion is a clear tes­ti­mony of the trust and con­fi­dence the peo­ple of the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of Congo re­pose in your lead­er­ship. I look for­ward to work­ing closely with you as we ex­plore av­enues of en­hanc­ing bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion as well as im­prove the trade re­la­tions that ex­ist be­tween our two coun­tries.

“At con­ti­nen­tal and mul­ti­lat­eral lev­els, I af­firm my com­mit­ment to work­ing with you for the com­mon good of both our peo­ples and the con­ti­nent.

“I take this op­por­tu­nity Dear Col­leagues to wish you personal good health and suc­cess as you dis­charge the oner­ous du­ties of the high­est of­fice in the coun­try. Please ac­cept, Your Ex­cel­lency, the as­sur­ances of my high­est con­sid­er­a­tion.”

In his mes­sage to Mr Ka­bila, Pres­i­dent Mnan­gagwa said DRC had made the re­gion proud by con­duct­ing elec­tions in a peace­ful and fair en­vi­ron­ment.

“I would like to con­grat­u­late you, Your Ex­cel­lency, and dear brother for the man­ner in which your Govern­ment con­ducted the re­cent pres­i­den­tial elec­tions which saw Pres­i­dent-elect, Mr Felix Tshisekedi, be­ing an­nounced the win­ner in the pro­vi­sional re­sults an­nounced by the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion of Jan­uary 9, 2019,” he said.

“This dis­play of states­man­ship which saw elec­tions be­ing con­ducted in a peace­ful and fair en­vi­ron­ment is com­mend­able and has made the re­gion proud.

“I am con­fi­dent that the tran­si­tion process will be man­aged and that those ag­grieved will air their is­sues through the rel­e­vant le­gal in­sti­tu­tions of the coun­try. Your Ex­cel­lency, the Con­golese peo­ple have shown the world that they are ca­pa­ble of run­ning their own af­fairs. Your Ex­cel­lency, Zanu-PF stands ready to con­tinue our co­op­er­a­tion at party-to-party level with the Peo­ple’s Party for Re­con­struc­tion and Democ­racy (PPRD).”

Mr Tshisekedi was an­nounced the win­ner in the Pres­i­den­tial elec­tions held in DRC on De­cem­ber 30 last year.
