It is every parent's dream and joy to walk their children down the aisle.
Many feel very much honoured and respected by their children when they are presented with the opportunity and chance to ''brag'' about the fact that they raised them well.
Zambian President Edgar Lungu is the man feeling the aforementioned right about now, just moments after seeing his daughter off to her new home.
Briefly.co.za has learnt that the president's daughter Tasila Lungi exchanged marital vows with the love of her life, Patrick Mwansa, on Saturday, September 26.
The lovebirds officiated their union at the St Ignatius Parish Catholic Church.
Well, before the bride could get to the church, she received all the blessings from her parents specifically her father who actually walked her down the aisle as he handed her over to her man.
To start off the day, president Edgar shared several photos of himself, his family and his daughter in her gown, preparing to leave for church on social media.
Accompanying the photos, the president disclosed how emotional he was to finally see off his daughter, who will always be his baby.
Edgar added that his daughter had honoured them with the official church wedding.
He also congratulated his daughter and her man on the caption and wished them all the happiness even as they start a new life.
''Giving your daughter away is not an easy thing for a father. I woke up with mixed emotions. In my eyes she's still a little girl, my little girl. Tasila has honoured us, and I was filled with joy as I proudly walked her down the aisle, giving her hand in marriage to Mr. Patrick Mwansa.
"To both of you, look to God and your marriage will be a success. The bible says in Ephesians 4:2 "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love." And in 1 Peter 4:8, the bible says "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. May God bless your union.'' he wrote.
The president was later spotted in a video walking his daughter down the aisle at the church looking all emotional.
Many people were touched by the video of the president and could not help but laud him for being and showing the qualities of a good dad.
Briefly.co.za understands Tasila and her boo have been undergoing marriage formalities such as pre-marriage lessons at St. Ignatius Parish in Lusaka as required by the Catholic Church.
The two had earlier on held a public engagement at the aforementioned church and duly informed the world about their upcoming wedding, which has finally come to pass.
