Patriotic Front president Edgar Lungu said he will love the Zambian people in the same way that the late president Michael Sata did .
Mr Lungu has also reiterated his pledge to continue with the late president’s programme of developing the nation when he takes over leadership of the country after the January 20 elections.

ZANIS reports that speaking yesterday at the National Square grounds in Serenje during a campaign rally, Mr Lungu said the late President Sata had a lot of confidence and trust in him hence appointing him PF Secretary General, Defense and also Justice Minister before his demise.Mr Lungu said it was due to this confidence and trust in him that made the late president pick on him to succeed him.

Mr Lungu who told thousands of supporters who turned up at the rally said it was immoral for the opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to think that he could win the forthcoming by – election and advised the people to vote for him because he had what it takes to lead Zambia to greater heights.

Mr Lungu also assured farmers in the district that they will be paid their money for supplying maize to the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) by the end of this week adding that the delays experienced in the 2013-2014 marketing season will not happen next year.

And Serenje Central PF Member of Parliament Philip Kosamu said whether the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) used violence or whatever means they will not win the January 20 election because Mr Lungu’s leadership was not from man but God.

    • Now he says he will love Zambia the same way Sata loved Zambia. This man is so embarrassing. Do PF senior officials see that? Everything is copied from someone else. You can’t run a nation by copying all along.

    • RB is helping EL to restructure PF so that the things they did wrong are corrected. Now RB is above all senior PF members. What an insult to PF. I can’t believe this. RB has come to PF to put things right in the party? Wow, then the senior PF members can just sit and watch. What if things are not well corrected and more things go wrong as they may well do in politics? What are the senior PF members going to say? IT’S Rupiah who did it or Rupiah done it!!Circus of the highest order. There is a mole in and PF members don’t know who it is.

      “No, dad, my future is in your hands. Just as you’ve paved my past years, you can do it again this January.”

      “What do you mean?”

      “You should go in the voting booth and vote for me,” Chileshe said.

      “I still don’t understand. You are not standing for anything.”

      “I am. One of the candidates on the ballot paper is me. I’m the one with a vision. If you see a Lungu in me, vote for me not because I belong to Sata’s party, and wish to carry his legacy and vision, but because I have my own vision. If I don’t, don’t. If you see a Hichilema in me, don’t vote for me because I am Tonga. Vote for me because I have a vision…

    • @Patriot Abroad. Nice one! Sorry for the delayed response but was speaking to home. There is someone I know sleeping in a hospital bed tonight compliments of PF thugs. His crime was to wear a UPND tee shirt. Everyone who dares to do so in his well known area of Lusaka is being promised the same fate. I guess it has me asking ED – where is the love?

    • love is the ultimate quintessence of our humanity. it transcend above everything else as it exemplifies and epitomizes the positive character, energy, inspiration and wisdom of what a leader must be.

      Hakainde is a definitive example of a narcissistic, conceited, self absorbed, vain egotistic and elitist leader without any element of connective to ordinary people.

      He presents a nauseating, repugnant repulsive force embellished in satanic freemason

Can you believe this person whose characteristics are of a Muslim gens. Muslims are very capable of wiping each other and not Zambia Christians. Watch out when choosing your president as others have authorized PANGAS as was in Rwanda and BOKO-HARRAM which are Lungu and RB connections. May the almighty GOD help Zambian in choosing their leader and prevent the wipes from ruling his people. AMEN

      3.He will love us by paying as farmers late so we die with hunger like this year.
      4.He will love by giving us wage freeze so that we fail to pay School fees.
      5.He will love by denying us a new constitution.

    • As the presidential by-election is getting 6 closer and closer,the excitement among different segments of the population is growing.

      Even prostitutes are not being left out, they have promised Zambian men two days of free sex if PF candidate Edgar Lungu wins on January 20th.

      Speaking to ICU press last night,sex workers have called on Zambians to vote for Lungu if they want the country to move forward,and as a bonus,they have offered 2 days of sex for free.

      This is not the first time such a pledge has been made toward Zambian men by sex workers.In 2012,sex workers from Lusaka and many towns offered free sex after the Chipolopolo won the AFCON in Gabon-as Zambian men scrambled for shares.

  7. Every time Edgar Lungu speaks to his supporters all he tells them is, ‘I will do this or that the way Sata did it’, ‘I will love the people of Zambia the way Sata loved them’. Frankly, did Sata love the people of Zambia or just his family, friends and tribesmen, going by the composition of his cabinet and foreign service appointments and failure to honour any of the numerous promises.
    Lungu must be advised that he should adopt own plans that will not favour only a section of the country otherwise he is de-campaigning himself.

  8. Below is an Office of the President Special Division Report on how Lungu and RB attempted to smuggle dollars inside Zambia using Rwandan soldiers. Part of the money came from Nigerian Muslims. We challenge them to deny this report and that the money is currently held outside Zambia.
    BRIEFING
    DATE: 05/01/15
    SUBJECT: OPERATION MUGASA
    On the 29th of December 2014 through our highly reliable source information was received to the effect that Edgar Lungu, Rupiah Banda and Henry Banda through Kagame had engaged Rwandese Soldiers from Kanigi and Njerima as couriers to transport USD via Tanzania and Malawi into Zambia.
    Acting upon that information our contact then engaged a colleague from Malawi and a border centre officer at Karonga border who would ID the suspected couriers based on the…

    • @17, You sitting in Canada had access to the report. You dunderhead think that Rwandans are stupid to send dollars (were they Zim dollars to be ferried in trucks) via Tanzania and Malawi. A chartered plane can land in Zambia and offload money. Dollars can come as valuable cargo with pilot of KQ or ET. Get a life. Dipak has run out of ideas and left it to useless *****s to spin lies and alarm nation. Have you ever travelled via Tanzania and Malawi, there are cargo scanners and every vehicle is thoroughly checked before clearance. By the way, why will soldiers move from Tanzania to Malawi when they can enter direct from Tanzania into Zambia via Nakonde Border? I have an OP Report, to counter your lie, HH pooed during Monze rally and was smelling like hell. Everybody at the stage was disguste

  9. There are some types of love Zambia can do without.

    1. Abusive love
    2. False fatherly love
    3. Love of political office over service to the people
    4. Love of back room politics that is self serving
    5. Love of being called the President instead of acting like one

    Which type of love are you offering ED because love is not on the list of issues that Zambians want their President to resolve? My guess for you is number 5… that has been all I have been able to see since Kabwe…

    04/01/15 Time: 03:40 Place Lilongwe
    On the 4th of January 2015 an operation was conducted and two men of Rwandese nationals were apprehended. Those detained are male Pascal Nzabamwita and Francois Gakwere aged 29 and 33 respectively from Kanigi and Njerima military bases. Travel: – details are that the two met Henry Banda at Bushokoro Hotel in Kinigi Rwanda. They then passed through Virunga national park in Ruyoni where they took a private jet into Singida Tanzania before boarding buses to Malawi. They met the third courier in Iringa Tanzania. 2.380million USD was recovered from the two and its being held as evidence in a suspected case of money laundering.

Male Didier Rutembusha 30 a Captain in the Rwandese Defence Force carrying a Kenyan passport and a Tanzanian travel document was nabbed in Dowa and found in possession of USD 1.55Million. In his possession was a phone number for Chipangali Member of Parliament 0977787845.
    Diplomatic Direction
    Not wanting to sour relations between Malawi and Zambia they have decided to charge the three with money laundering and failing to declare foreign currency with a revenue officer. They advanced reasons of suspects not coming out openly to confess, hence the need to protect and preserve the relations amongst the three countries; Malawi, Rwanda and Zambia.

  15. If Edgar is going to love zambians the way sata did, then its a big big problem.

    1. Sata loved his relatives more than zambians.
    2. Sata favored one region more than others, and he allowed them to use state systems to promote their well being alone, not even easterners benefitted.

    3. sata had a cabinet which was not only full of relatives but 85% were from his region

    4. if sata loved us, he would not have overturned on the constitution and said it was an animal dricen constitution.

    5. sata turned agianst the youths and re-embrace the chinese, what a disppointment.

    6. sata loved zambians so much that he took the RDA to state house and was dishing out contracts by way of mouth, ignoring paying farmers because thats where his benefits were.

    2. Why you’ve failed to reduce the fuel pump price when it has drastically reduced on the international market
    3. Why mealie-meal prices have kept on sky rocketing despite bosting of bumper harvest

    5. Why you imposed on the wage and employment freeze on poor zambians

    • Talking about reducing fuel prices. In the UK where the fuel pump price had hit £1.32 per litre, has seen a reduction in prices. With some service stations selling fuel at 99.3p. At least the reduction in fuel has been passed onto the people. This has also resulted in reduction of food prices. We never see a genuine reductions here but only for election purposes.

    I am a follower of our great man of God. I honor and respect the grace upon him. I seat every sunday morning and wednesday evening to listen to his teachings and wisdom – a great man indeed.

    Now we are encouraged as believers in Christ to test all prophecies.

    With honor to papa Bro. Joshua and the body of christ, allow me to state one of papa’s prophecy concerning the land of Zambia of 28-09-2014.

    In september last year papa Bro. Joshua was in Zambia for 3 days gospel crusade in Lusaka – Woodland Stadium from 26 to 28. And this was his prophecy about our late president M.C. Sata.

    God has shown me that your president will not die. I see long life in him. I also see two leaders – one in…

  23. This Lungu is crazy, how can he ask people to vote for him on the claim that he loves them ? How does he prove the claim that he will love us ? Let him articulate policy issues and how he will make a difference in people’s lives. Is love part of PF manifesto now , and how is going to implement his love ?

Please address the issue facing people,explain what you have achieved,what is in the pipeline and y what you plan to do.In fact it is immoral for you to keep mentioning Sata and how he trusted you instead of telling expectant masses what they can benefit by electing you!!

  25. I am not a fan of the PF. I have not heard enough from them to make me vote for EL. In fact, I have heard almost nothing from EL himself, The Boostele songs, phrases like “legend of the L”, “Ultimate President” and more recently “Chagwamania” have only served to puzzle me. The continual reference to the late President and his “vision” is completely uninspiring.

    If they do win, I will accept that we prefer mediocrity to progress. Although I do not think Miles would win the elections, I have a feeling that he would have ran a better campaign. At least he would have actually said something worth analysing.

      Really! What nonsense! You have no way of telling whether Sampa would have ran a better campaign! It’s ridiculous really that people set out to write a lot of rubbish that says absolutely nothing. Sampa has no senior gov’t experience such as Lungu. Other than being a dull self righteous poser.

      Lungu has been campaigning for a while now, if you were genuinely interested you would know what he stands for. Development, Equality and Inclusion.

      There is no questioning Lungu’s ability. He has held multiple portfolios in gov’t in which he has performed superbly. He combines that with a humble nature not some cocky ‘I am Rich, Vote for me’ HH, nonsense.

  26. What makes EL think Sata loved Zambians? This is utter nonsense. Sata never loved anyone other than his family members. He never held a press conference to answer to the people, he never spoke politely to the people who voted for him. Instead he flooded the foreign service with his and Kaseba’s relatives, most of them without any qualifications befitting the appointments. The problem with PF is that they want to behave as if Sata owned Zambia. Remember it was only 43% who voted for Sata. So don’t foo.l yourselves and think EL will have a walkover. The political landscape has completely changed. Sata angered a lot of people and his death is an opportunity to kick out this disrespectful party. Sata wanted the UNIP style of government where he could be worshiped like a small god.

  27. What can come from PF and Lungu? From the time he started campaigning he has been plagiarizing HH’s campaign messages:
    1. HH said I recognize Chitimukulu – me too!
    2. HH said I will reinstate the fired nurses – me too!
    3. I will pay farmers on time – me too!
    4. HH said I will lower the cost of living – me too!
    5. HH said I will lower the prices for inputs – me too and the list of plagiarism goes on.
    Does Lungu know that plagiarism is an act of fraud? What he is doing is stealing HH else’s messages and presenting them as his own.
    I have never seen a leader with a weak intellectual disability like Lungu.
    There is no doubt that Lungu cannot originate an economic or social or political idea hence depending on cutting and pasting HH’s messages

  28. Michael Sata never loved Zambians, he was the father of tribalisim and the country is in this mess it is in now because of Sata. What is this drunkard saying? Sata knew that he was very sick the time he became impotent, if he loved Zambians he could have put things in place by mentoring a credible person to be his success but alas. He was full of nepotism. Edgar Lungu will surely win this erection as advised by his medical team but he will definitely lose the forth coming election.
    The desperation by the Patriotic failures has reached very high levels. To the extent of them using prostitutes to win votes. Kambwili is busy giving prostitues money and in turn the prostitues are saying that they will give free sex to all patriotic failures if they win. this is real desperation by PF!!!!!!!

How will he love all Zambians when he is surrounded by tribalists like RB and Kambwili? This is a blue lie. Fortunately most non-northerners and non-easterners are able to see the PF lies this time around.

  29. The fact is Lungu is the right President for Zambia. You note that as a Legal minded person, he has correctly set out to be inclusive in his ethos. He is setting out to create a fairer Zambia.

    In relation to Farmers late payment…it’s worth pointing out that even here in the UK, Dairy farmers are experiencing late payments from gov’t in a crisis caused by over production of Milk such that the Market Economies of Demand and (over)Supply have caused a big drop in Milk price. Milk now retails as cheap as 0.60p per Litre where it used to be around £1.50 on average. Some Farmers are closing down aspects of their Dairy Products like Cheese and Yogurt lines. Some are closing down!

    Zambians should understand the Farming crisis is as a result of the over production of Maize.

    • Ba patriot abroad you never cease to amaze your dullness. If this government was wise and caring, they should have opened up the export market to sell some of the maize to neighboring countries who have got no food Like Malawi, Zimbabwe, DRC etc. they should have thought of ways to help the farmers. How can you even compare the UK, a first world country which mostly relying on industrialization to a third world country like Zambia which solely rely on maize as staple food. The PF are simply a bunch of dull failures who do not no the economics of development. The fact that you are staying in rural London or working on a farm does not mean that you know the economics of farming. Please sleep on your ignorance and stop vomiting. You are a lost sheep.

  33. @patriot abroad. In the UK they have free market economics. The farmers are dealing directly with markets (supply and demand). In zambia we have government involvement. The government sets the price and purchases the product in question. Thus in Zambia the government is responsible for creating equilibrium. This is actually a self inflicted crisis created by a failure to plan. NO SPIN CAN COVER THAT FACT.

    Below is an Office of the President Special Division Report on how Lungu and RB attempted to smuggle dollars inside Zambia using Rwandan soldiers. Part of the money came from Nigerian Muslims. We challenge them to deny this report and that the money is currently held outside Zambia.

    BRIEFING

    DATE: 05/01/15

    SUBJECT: OPERATION MUGASA

    On the 29th of December 2014 through our highly reliable source information was received to the effect that Edgar Lungu, Rupiah Banda and Henry Banda through Kagame had engaged Rwandese Soldiers from Kanigi and Njerima as couriers to transport USD via Tanzania and Malawi into Zambia.

    1. Refusing to give us a constitution despite of having 81 MPs?
    2. Increasing his salary shortly after assuming office?
    3. Inducing unecessary by-elections
    4. Allowing rampant corruption to continue
    5. Allowing violence to be a center of his party
    The list goes on
    And this Lungu guy comes and says he will “love Zambia the way Sata did”, I now I see why they call this guy a drunkard

It remains to be seen whether Zambians are going to hand over power to this long fingered and an uninspiring drunkard. Then the problem will not have been the leaders but the people.

I know that many PF politicians went to seek help from native doctors to increase their luck of winning the elections. Edgar Lungu was also advised to do so considering that the UPND are coming on hot in the contest. The guy gave in and now he is using charms. The problem with charms is that there is always a sacrifice required. When they start demanding that’s when you realise that its not worth using charms in anything you do. Edgar is digging his owm misfortune because he will eventually be exposed when the charms begin demanding for their share. I am just saying……..Watch this space.

Simple economics suggest that when there is more production, the price of the products should go dow. Has the price of the basic commodity despite a bumper harvest gone down? These thieves seems not to know what to do when there is a big harvest. Is this not what everyone prays for, a better harvest? Why should these PF dunderheads fail to find a better solution, when you pay the farmers on time, you would be encouraging them to grow more and in turn you would be helping the population. Now after sourcing money from Boko haram, they want to give Nigeria the preference of buying maize when our neighbors have got no food. Are there any economists in the PF?

  50. @patriot abroad, this really shows how ignorant you are about Zambian economic policies. That is why I am saying that ulichikopo, much as the farmers would wish to sell their maize else where outside the county, the government does not allow the exportation of maize without permission unless they smuggle it. You are talking many years ago but these patriotic failures you are supporting stopped the export of maize, wheat and maize bran. Where do you think the farmers would sell there products. In 2012 I had a friend from DRC who bought about 300 tons of maize which was impounded at kasumbalesa. This made all the Congolese buyers to turn to South Africa which has an open market policy. I was one of those who sent 150 tons of maize to DRC. The supply was even short in South Africa.

      I don’t understand why I am a chikopo because I give a good debate! Why not debate without offence uh?

      In any case, I support the gov’t preventing exports of Zambia’s maize as it is a national item of importance due to our dietary needs. Secondly, the gov’t buys it to export to get much needed Revenue for Schools, Hospitals etc. it makes sense to have that control so all regionall grown maize is bought locally.

      Having said that, I don’t see where in your debate you give a reason why Farmers cannot sell their crop internally in Zambia. Why can they not bag it into pop corn. Apply for licence to brew local maize liquor. Eh….use it to produce a paste for glue. I could go on forever with product ideas. WHAT PREVENTS DIVERSIFYING CROPS.

    • Which Lusaka are you in? Unlike 2011 the cars are driving around and people are just watching!!! I heard one woman saying instead of being in the market working they are busy driving around town making noise. Unless you are in a different Lusaka. I am in the town centre everyday so don’t mislead people.

  53. @patriot abroad, please stop vomiting and barking if you do not know what you are talking about. This is the same government after the banning of the exportation of maize and other related product, they opened the local market to those Importing underwears. Is that a government which cares about its people. Second hand underwears of all things? As a lost sheep, I suggest that you stop commenting on things you don’t know in Zambia. Iwe chapwa tawakabwele. Your relatives don’t even think of you.you are like a bad omen to them.

      I am sick and tired of you replying to my comments with personal insults. You must be a very disturbed individual if you think that is normal behaviour. How dare you talk for my relatives! As far as I am aware I was conversing with them at Christmas!

      Imports for second hand underwear. For Fs sake what HAS that got to do with the Farmers issue, you stupi.d fool. You can ‘to debate. I am going to comment and do not take instructions from a fo.ol like you.

      UPND Supporters are really sick people!

      Just so you know, most of those relatives you are referring to live off my mother and fathers money as they stole inheritance and will be before the law before the end of this year. The bad omen is real due to the fact they face the slammer (prison), for that theft. Thankfully our gov’t now takes action against relatives like that.

      You just keep yapping sh.it on this website and I am going to get you arrested. Trust me, I will get a court order for your details to be divulged. Social media is not for personal abuse. Watch yourself.

  55. @patriot abroad, for your own information, I do business in the SADC region, Malawi does not have maize, DRR for many years because of war does not grow maize. Only on subsistence level and Zimbabwe, since Mugabe grabbed farms from white farmers has always had no food. At one time some people in rural areas were even said to be eating dogs just to survive. There are over 4 million refugees in South Africa because there is no food in the country.
    Oh thanks for letting us know that at least your mother has a degree in auparing from Italy. My mother never went to school but she educated a highly qualified and successful business man who is contributing to the well being of his people back home.

      It is clear your mother never went to school.

      It is clear your school did the educating and not your mother. What you got from your mother, is your unpleasant mouth and mentally disturbed, violent ranting at innocent people. Your manners is what you stu.pid mother contributed to society.

      Your business success (I doubt it’s true) is due to theft and payments from UPND.

      You can’t debate! Where is your education, now you are ranting about dogs, SA, Malawi, when we are on Farmers in ZAMBIA.

  56. @ patriot abroad 58.2 farmers in Zambia were until reecently not able to sell maize any other entities but FRA. You referringto the farming of other produce such as tomatoes and other vvegetables that is not what keeps these people afloat for income. Then you have the issues of getting produce to markets that is why agriculture in zambia is run the way it is with government in charge of markets on cash crops. Try farming anything over 100 acres of maize or cotton and then try to market it yourself in zambia without government involvement and see what happens. Farmers are not able to sell directly to even to millers. You think the FRA was just another bureaucratic construct with no strategic function? That’s why we had CSD, DPB, LINTCO, ZPP AND NAMBOARD back then.SAVE OUR FARMERS VOTE HH!

      I do not dispute the fact that the gov’t Control policies on cash crops like Maize is not working well. What I am saying is that control of these crops is essential to ensure enough food for the citizens of Zambia. It is essential also for the gov’t to get control of the Revenue that comes from our Farmers in this manner so they get best Price on the market.

      In relation to Farmers in Zimbabwe, they are now better off since the farms are now successfully producing cash crops for Bla is. The effect of the sanctions is what you are referring to as hunger among the population, but that will in time be resolved also by campaigning to stop the sanctions in Zim.

      However, I believe the local Mills to be set up regionally is an excellent idea. In relation to getting crops…

    • However, I believe the local Mills to be set up regionally is an excellent idea. They will allow lower Mealie meal prices for citizens.

      In relation to getting crops to market WE CAN’t dispute the fact that PF have set up the roads Developed across all Zambia to give better access to roads.

  57. A true hallmark of primitivism is to argue on the basis of tribalism, racism and other such vices.

    I am more inclined to pity the person who argues using abusive tribal language than the person who is being belittled/insulted because of his/her tribe or race.

    Zambians, I humbly request that we avoid stirring up tribal hatred. It can never result in any good. History has so many lessons on the evils of such talk. Take a walk in the Rwanda Genocide Museum and you will see that we (Zambians) are taking the path that led to that terrible genocide, and all for what? A politician?

    Must I hate a person for what God made him/her out to be? A matter for which that person had no option. Must I hate that person because he/she was born black or white? Hutu or Tutsi? Jew or German? Tonga or…

Until you learn alittle more about the country you seem to care so much about please refrain from advertising your ignorance no offence intended but from this post I think most people will not take any of your posts seriously.

      Why do you not post your comments as follow up in the right place so people can see the whole debate. I notice that you and another @Voice of no reason keep telling me I don’t know what I am saying. It’s stupi.d. I studied Gov’t and Politics, Economics, and Sociology therefore I can make informed comments on those matters as I can apply principles of those fields WHICHEVER COUNTRY I comment on.

      AND NO I WILL NOT REFRAIN FROM DEBATING THOSE ISSUES. YOUR OPINION THAT I SHOULD NOT DEBATE THESE ISSUES MATTERS NOT A BIT TO ME

      And don’t be so dismissive, your debate is poor, relaying mostly on emotional drama rather than logic, and abusive language. I did not say farmers set their own prices up you Faker.

  62. Chimbwi no Plan: Everything is what the late SATA did…

    We are effectively selling and destroying the country with this clown. The guy has no plan, no morals, no resolve to develop the country, just a selfish desire to line-up his pockets….

    He keeps contradicting himself, he will/have reinstated nurses, will pay farmers, will build this and build that, everything they opposed just last year, and not to forget they are in government at the moment, why not do it now!!!???

    I am convinced HH may just be the only hope for Zambia.

      Your debate shows no proof of your qualifications and extremely poor Financial Analyst. Let alone the appropriate command of English.

      Why do you people try to intimidate people with your fabled qualifications when you can’t even debate the correct issues pertaining to your qualifications? Give us a Financial argument!

      PF have been in Office 3 years of their 5 years and have developed the country far much more than in previous gov’t. That they have borrowed for some of it is disconcerting, but as a financial analyst (questionable), you should mount an argument as to why the IMF are wrong in saying that the borrowing was within an acceptable level for instance.

    • Also as for this Chimbwi no Plan comment. We have had this time and time as a critique. It does not cut it!

      MMD made plans for development, PF carried them out, Lungu says he will carry them out to completion for Continuity, theme ask for a new mandate 2016. What’s wrong with that. I mean really as an analyst do you think an elaborate financial plan on a national scale in 1.9 months possible? All your customers must be bankrupt by now!

      There is a plan and direction to deliver development which has been followed through and will be carried through.

      That is no Chimbwi no Plan! Stop just ranting. Accept HH cannot win these elections, you know it, everyone knows it!

  65. I DON’T WANT TO BE LOVED BY A S.T.U.P.I.D DRUNKARD.

    I DON’T NEED HIS LOVE. I have enough people around me to love me, my family is enough. Who says I care about his love. All I cared for is for him to do his f.u.c.k.i.n.g. job. This .i.d.i.o.t EL wants to tell me and the nation that people should vote for him just so that they get love from HIM??? Who cares about his s.t.u.p.i.d love? He was given 3 years but PF screwed everything up, thinking Zambians are s.t.u.p.i.d. Zambians don’t want his stinking love, Zambians want a president who can work and do his job properly, NOT AN ALCOHOLIC failed lawyer who doesn’t feel ashamed about how he gets into power. EL just irritates everybody, I can’t wait for 22nd January.

  67. Today the elections are no more, the president is now Edgar Lungu. This man has gone through numerous hardships with a short period of time. How Today he is the republican president. He has endured the insults, criticisms, humiliation on his health, serious rejection from one provnince, etc. This is how politics goes. However, PF should continue its projects, in fact this whole one year should be used to accomplish their mission as already promised to the People. Edgar you have gone through simply because many Zambians are not ready for change. However, it is also true that you have a large following of people who love you naturally. This love is beyond your tribal affiliation. You are now the president and please continue to follow all the good things that M. C Sata embraced.
