Edgar Lungu Addressing Rally held at President’s Park in Luwingu

PF President Edgar Lungu has stated that all outstanding issues affecting the Chitimukulu chieftaincy will be resolved.
Speaking when he met Paramount Chief Chitimukulu at Chitimukulu in Mungwi District, Mr. Lungu said his role was to enhance good relations between government and traditional authorities.

He said Chiefs in the country were custodians of people’s interest and concerns.

He said he decided to pay a courtesy call before venturing into the campaigns.

Mr. Lungu was accompanied to the Palace by Minister of Finance, Alexander Chikwanda, PF Chairperson Inonge Wina, Member of the Central Committee, Samuel Mukupa, Northern Province Minister, Freedom Sikazwe, Kasama Central Member of Parliament, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba.

And the Bemba Royal Establishment (BRE) known as Bashilubemba expressed concern that the recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu had taken long.

And the Bashilubemba expressed concern that online newspapers had reported that Minister of Traditional Affairs Minister Nkandu Luo was going to be appointed as Vice-President.

The Bashilubemba accused Hon. Nkandu Luo of failing to help resolve disputes in chiefdoms.

But the PF President stated that he has not chosen, discussed or even thought about whom he should appoint as Vice-President in the event that he won the upcoming elections.

He said that his primary focus was to concentrate on the issues affecting the people of Zambia and his campaigns.

    Iwe Kalulu batila Bugs Bunny, waya fika kwi sano mwa? Ufwiile wabalila wa fukama, walomba ubwelelo pali ifyo mwa cita mwe ba PF. Ule umfwa??? Papata.

    Ba kanabesa has denied you the opportunity to apologise by saying he reconciled already with Mr. Sata. He didn’t. He’s refusing to hear your apology – do I have to explain every nuance to you??? – Sha!!

    • Nkandu Luo we respect you but for us the real Team EL that were there when EL was barred from Cabinet house, for us there is only one person we can have as VEEP..Your Excellency Sir we want my Aunty and mother the Iron Lady Inonge Wina a real woman that all Zambian women must emulate!!!

      ****VIVA EDGAR LUNGU 2015****

    • Even CHIEFS !! ..The Elders have Spoken !!…

      It’s VIVA !! EDGAR LUNGU PRESIDENT 2015

      Start Getting used to it,because this name is not going any where !!

      ONE ZAMBIA ! ONE NATION !

    • Only f00ls are not aware that Willi Nsanda will be appointed MP then vice president once Lungu wins.

      If you think the main sponsor Willie Nsanda will let any one take his post, then you are dreaming.

      If Lungu does not give Nsanda what he wants, VEEP post, then Lungu will go down very fast before he even has had a chance to enjoy his presidency.

      Dream on PF minions. Your VEEP is willie Nsanda. Then once Lungu is taken out, he will be your president.

      Don’t say you are shocked when this comes to pass because I have told well in advance.

      Ignore my prognosis at your peril!

    • Finally Lungu has met the Mwine when as Home Affairs Minister he sent 500 cops to harass ba Mwine. I wonder why some people disrespect chiefs?

    • Jessie Jessie! Umungoni chaiwo alefwaya afukame, bushe nalufyanya; batila uwatwala pa bwingi…

      Uyu muntu kuti bamutunga buchakolwa lelo muntu sana mwe! Alanda na mano mo.

      Nshabamo namu ma politiki nomba, Chibe Chibe may the best team win for my Zambia.

    • The same drunk in the name of Edgar Vodka Lungu (EVL) who sent his police officers to embarrass our chief now goes there with empty promises. People, what has become of us? have we lost all morality?

  2. I’m getting annoyed on your behalf ED. All these people speaking and speculating. It’s almost like they think you have no voice of your own. Of all accusations to make. A VEEP who won’t sit well with your new found buddies. Newly weds face daily challenges, ED. Just find your own voice after all the divorce proceedings are under way as the Bishop at the reception was the last straw for your hubby. He’s running solo and apologising on your behalf like you have no voice of your own. Darn annoying for you, I’m sure. Chuckle.

  3. without elections this would not have happened. Now that blessings are being sort, the man that was so humiliated becomes a stepping stone for the same oppressors. I think traditional leaders and humanity in general should be treated with dignity – as the adage goes; ‘ on your way up, do not overlook those below; you may need them on your way down’.

  4. Us its Lungu all the way to 20 January 2015. Lungu is in state house already whether you like it or not. Lungu ngelesia booooool .

    Peace and Prosperity to mother Zambia.

  5. According to his answer: EL has neither denied nor confirmed whether Nkandu Luo will be VEEP. He has not said Luo will not be his VEEP. So bashilubemba, YES NKANDO LUO CAN BE MADE VEEP UNDER LUNGU PRESIDENCY. ANOTHER DON’T KUBEBA AT PLAY. Hon. Lungu is non-committal.

    • Everything has time and time for imfumu yesu is now. Bashilubemba already told us that they reconciled with Mr Sata so Lungu is right to honor what his teacher taught him. But you UPND chaps, have run out ideas so fast?

      Zambia is not a kraal, it’s a nation with 14 million people. If you can be confused just in two months, who can trust with Governance?

      Let the experienced PF continue on the path of massive development twapapata!

  6. Pf only remembering the honorable P/chief during election another don’t kubeba! Let me say this again, I CANT & WILL NEVER AGAIN, ONCE MORE vote for Pathetic liars! Unless Pf redo the life history of Sata, tell the nation when Sata got sick, what killed him, apologise to the Zambians for keeping the president’s health a secret until they could no more do a don’t kubeba on death & also tell the nation who killed their cadre in the Mufumbwe by-election, who killed their cadre in L/stone by-election, Tell the nation why since coming into power there hasn’t been any press conference, tell the nation what happened about the 90days constitution promise, tell the nation why even after 90 days pf failed to realize the constitution after a lot of funds & resources were wasted on the…

  7. Ignore those who promise what they have failed to do while in power.!

    Its HH 4ward.

    14.00 President HH Announces his Cabinet and the Kwacha jumps to K2.5/$1

    Zambia heads for massive economic, social development under HH for next 11 Years.!

    • A dream never to be realized! This is exactly the opposite, PF already invited foreign heads and they have acknowledged their presence at inauguration of Edgar Lungu as sixth President of Zambia.
      Where are the so called image builders? They bolted after sensing that Edgar is headed for a landslide. They told Dipak Patelo & UPND that they have broken for Xmas and never to be seen in this land.

    • And according to your brain you think the kwacha jumping to K2.5/$ in a matter of hours is good for the economy? Koma ndiye kusoba nzelu uko. Anyway siba lesa kuchita fantasize

    • @insp also avoid those whose parties have failed to develop their constituencies in this regard it is obvious that I refer to your tribal alliance called UPND and its dismal failure in developing its own towns in Southern province..
      …also avoid those whose leaders are proven plunderers that are directly responsible for deaths of hundreds of poor miners due to poverty as a result of selling the mines for a song only so that they (HH) could benefit at the sake of poor Zambians.
      …you and your party UPND are a joke and all of Zambia is laughing at your delusions of grandeur…Zambians are for Edgar Lungu all the way..

      ***VIVA EDGAR LUNGU 2015***

  8. but ba edgar are u sure u are following Sata’s legacy? by re apointing sosala u are doing contrary to sata,s wishes ki ki ki

  9. me i suspect linyungandambo cud have done something “magical ” to the president(MHSRIP) REMEMBER BAROTSHISH WANT BACK THEIR LABNDE AND DIVORCE RHODESIA.KWASILA KIPETO,KWAMANA.IF EDGAR WINS THEN WATCH OUT

  10. KELVIN MUTALE SAMPA JOINS THE KATONDO BOYS BOOSTELE TEAM.

    THANKS MR SAMPA…THANK YOU KASAMA ,THANK YOU CHITIMUKULU AND THANK YOU ZAMBIA

    2015 VOTE PF (EDGAR)

    I THANK YOU

    • @Katondo boys: I guess you used to call yourself ‘Isaac or Kim’ on Tumfweko.com. Are you never tired of ranting? Are sure you are the only Zambian getting the most of benefits in the PF reign? You are too personal and you a have a spirit of confusion, tribalism & hatred. All Zambians stand benefit or lose in the hand of a good or bad president respectively.

  11. In terms of vision Lungu has said it all, ” I Have NO Vision For Zambia” But just been wondering, is Lungu fit physically, his face tells unfinished story or its another liability for Zambia? I think Miles Sampa would have been a better option for pf. Anyway, just thinking!!!! Zambia deserves better.

  12. Fellow country men and women i greet you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord on this great day.
    The reason i speak to you today is simple—my family and i would like to wish you nothing but love, peace, joy and unity this Christmas, and of course a happy new year.
    I pray to God that you celebrate this Christmas peacefully with your beloved family members and friends. Do not over indulge.
    During this period, please focus on that which you unites our country and not that which divides us.
    To our party members, and sympathizers, i thank you all for the tremendous support you have given us thus far as we step up the campaign for the 2015 presidential elections.
    Let’s us continue to campaign in the same spirit and zeal of oneness
    2015 VOTE PF (EDGAR)

    I THANK YOU

  13. ….I’m impressed the way Edgar has matured into HARD CORE politician so soon…..He now befits the description of a politician……one of the attributes of a politician is to blind electorates with a smoked screen so that the cannot see beyond their noses and temporally erase their memories…..not long ago we head of a battalion of police officers guarding the official chitimukulu palace…literally barring Sosala accessing the site….
    …when a renowned politician wants a vote from you, he can even take a bath in a sewer pond if you ask him to because he knows eventually you will have to pay for it once he gets that much needed vote of yours….

  14. KATONDO boys lets go in the compounds and convince our relatives to vote for one EDGAR CHAGWESA LUNGU. For me its automatic, some of my relatives have met EL in person and there fore it is not very difficulty to convince them to vote for EL Most of my relatives have assured me that they are voting EL. KATONDO BOYS looks like we won the battle on this site, now lets go where it matters, to our relatives.
    2015 VOTE EL
    EL CHABE IN 2015. WE DONT WANT CHANCERS

  15. Only those voters with frozen grey matter will continue supporting & entertaining these lies from Lairs Party PF. Only voters with no memories will cast their votes on useless,visionless & selfish PF. Its time Zambian voters use their brains to vote not tribe as these social economic miseries under Lairs Party PF chooses no tribe.We know that bloggers supporting Lairs Party PF are directly benefiting selfishly from Corruption under PF.

  16. Zambia has never been a christian nation.Zambia has only church goers & religious people not christians.Christians do not thrive on: lies,nepotism,tribalism,corruption & selfishness as being witnessed more especially under Lairs Party PF. These PF sycophants have insatiable desire for power even to an extent of killing fellow Zambians who seem to be more competitive than then or anathema to their inimical developmental agendas.

  17. Lungu is an unstable character and a lot of his misdeeds are now piling to expose his inadequacies as a leader, the case of Judge Chikopa and now the Chitimukulu issue. He is being mischievous and treacherous to the late Sata by claiming that he is going to reverse all issues that were unjustified when he was one of the key players in all the injustices. Reminds me of Brutus betrayal of Julius Caesar when exclaimed ‘Et tu Brute’ (and you Brutus) upon realising that Brutus had plotted against him.

  18. 26 MPs JOIN 81 MPs TO SUPPORT EDGAR LUNGU
    EDGAR SET TO WIN ELECTIONS
    The certainty of who will win the forthcoming Presidential By-election has become very clear with 107 MPS endorsing the candidature of PF President Edgar Chagwa Lungu.
    The MPS are now expected to go into the countryside and embark on a vigorous campaign that might secure the win in the 107 constituencies out of 150 Constituencies in Zambia.
    The 26 MPS are drawn from the 35 MPS from MMD.

    The MPS mostly drawn from constituencies with Zambia’s biggest voting population have provided the clear swing that Edgar Lungu needed.
    PF draws most if it’s support from Copper belt, Luapula, Lusaka and Northern provinces.
    MMD draws it’s support from Eastern Province but has support from Central, Western and Northwestern.

    • @mwanawakwitu..well said that is exactly what Ive been saying we need her as Veep Mama Inonge Wina is our real Iron Lady!!! God bless this amazing woman!!

      ***VIVA EDGAR LUNGU 2015***

    PEOPLE YOU DONT LEARN BUT INCLUDING BA CHITIMUKULU .

    AKUBANYUNYENI EFYO FINE TEAM KAMINAMISA US ITS FLIGHT HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
    AM VERY HAPPY THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT FROM HIS ROTTEN MOUTH

  20. I wonder how it feels like bowing down to the person you rejected and persecuted, acting like you love them just for the vote.

  21. Bembas have an issue here to resolve.
    How do they associate with PF Sata that declined to recognize mwine Lubemba Chitimukuu and go to bed with. Patrick Mucheleka defended Chitimukulu and none of PF officials came to the rescue of Chitimukulu. Mucheleka and GBM defended Chitimuklu. Up todate Chanda Sosala is not recognized by the Zambian government.
    What a shameful position of PF and late Sata.
