The Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) says President Edgar Lungu has shown commitment to delivering on his promises.

FODEP Executive Director Macdonald Chipenzi says the recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala and the appointing of Ngosa Simbyakula as Justice Minister to spearhead the constitution making process point to the fact that President Lungu may fulfill most his campaign promises.

Mr. Chipenzi says it is good that President Lungu has stayed true to his promise because this is what the people of Zambia want.

He adds that leaders must be able to keep their promises instead of merely using people as ladders to get to power.

Mr. Chipenzi says it is good that finally the impasse surrounding the recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people will now be put to rest.

He has further urged President Lungu to continue honoring all the promises he made to the people of Zambia stressing that this will help him gain the confidence and trust of the people.

And Justice Minister Ngosa Simbyakula has reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring that the new Republican Constitution is enacted within the shortest possible time.

Dr. Simbyakula says he is humbled that Republican President Edgar Lungu has entrusted him with the responsibility of spearheading the speedy enactment of the new constitution.

Dr. Simbyakula has told QFM News in an interview that he will work hard and not disappoint President Lungu and the people of Zambia.

He says the task before him is not simple but will try by all means to do the right thing for the country.

The Justice Minister says the people of Zambia should not doubt him saying he has taken the challenge with two hands and will ensure that the new constitution is enacted.

    • We wait to see what Lungu can deliver nationally. The sosala issue can not be used as a measuring yardstick because the man should have been recognized some three years ago. As far as I am concerned Lungu hasn’t delivered a thing yet. To appoint Simbyakula or Wina is one thing and to deliver is quite another. Let us not get excited with all these appointments. I know of a relative of mine who is about to get a job through Wina as ps. What I am simply saying is that friends and relatives are still being employed.

  1. As a Zambian, of course I wish this drunk chap all the best. I’m stuck with his a** for at least the next two years or so. He’s now the head honcho here in Zambia. I cannot wish ill on Zambia for that long. So yes, I wish ka Lungu very big successes. Although I look at every photo of this ka mambala online and elsewhere and I can’t help but shake my head..

  2. Nothing wrong to deliver HH’s campaign promises, boy. After all, HH himself surely would have delivered them himself were he to be president. Wrong? So if you have good ideas but no power to implement, give them to those with power to deliver. Don’t let your dreams die with you when someone could have turned them into realities. That’s the meaning of patriotism. Moral lesson: Stop whinning and nagging about HH promises being stolen whenever Lungu implements them as if HH never meant them to be implemented.

  3. McDonald, you are a star.

    Your observations are spot on.

    Your comments come at a time when people expect very little from Tonga Executives. I don’t mean to propel the tribal debate but this the way it should be.

    Give credit where it is due.

    • To honest, we believed so many past presidents that they would deliver, but they didn’t except changing their own lifestyle. I don’t see anything different more so that it’s the same party that hasn’t delivered for past three.

  4. Any of presidential aspirants even muliokela would recognise Sosala. The difference was just between Bisas(sata,luo) and bembas(mucheleka,gbm).its not even a national issue.trust me,PF will not deliver the constitution because this would mean to knock them out by 50+1% clause.but if they deliver then I will vote for PF next year.remember that Edgar was clear during his campaign when stated that the constitution was not his priority.
