Republican President Edgar Lungu has said that he will not abuse his office to fix people.

And the Head of State has warned PF members not to undermine his authority and incite him to remove certain people from office because of their political affiliations.

President Lungu says his duty is to protect Zambians without favor or fear despite the president Lungu political affiliations of Zambians.

President Lungu says he will not interfere in cases that are before the courts of law saying the law should take its course.

The President’s comments come in the wake of some tabloid newspapers that have insinuated that President Lungu is behind the efforts to have Director of Public Prosecution, Mutembo Nchito arrested and prosecuted.

He says if a petition is brought before his attention and the case is before court, he cannot do anything because his hands are tied.

Mr Lungu urged the Zambia Police to effectively protect and defend the Zambian people.

President Lungu said there was need to ensure that the people of Zambia continue to enjoy their constitutional rights.

He said it was important for the Police Service to perform its duties professionally as required by law.

President Lungu said he will do his best to protect all Zambians and noted that in doing so, he will also ensure that courts work independently.

He said he will always allow the courts to work independently so that they may perform their duties diligently.

And President Lungu has warned PF members not to undermine his powers by influencing him to deal with certain individuals saying he is in office to serve the interests of Zambians and not individuals.

He says he does not care whether he will be adopted in 2016 or not, stating that he has put the people of Zambia first in the execution of his duties.

President Lungu says PF members who are not happy with certain individuals in office should stop bickering and meet him head on saying he is protecting the interests of Zambia.

President Lungu said this at State House this morning when he sworn-in Malcolm Mulenga as Deputy Inspector General of Police, Anderson Namachila as Luapula Province Police Commissioner, Auxensio Daka as Muchinga Province Police Commissioner and Stanslous Chewe as Northern Province Police Commissioner.

Others are Ambassador Shiela Siwela as Senior Private Secretary in the office of the Vice President and Doreen Mwaba as Chief Policy Analyst at State House.

He urged the appointees to thrive in bringing justice and protecting all Zambians and property.

He said the newly appointed officers should ensure that they thoroughly investigate cases and ensure that every Zambian enjoys constitutional rights.

    • KWACHA TO HIT OVER K50 PER $ DOLLAR BY 2016.

      The serious issue we should be debating is KWACHA’s free fall against the $Dollar.

      At the rate the kwacha is falling, it will surely hit well over K50 per dollar by 2016 due to PF ‘s inability to deal with the TRADE DEFICIT and to implement sensible monetary policies.

      PF has no clue of how to stop the kwacha falling dismally because its composed of thugs who do Not understand how to deal with endogenous causes such as TRADE DEFICIT and MONETARY POLICIES, but simply turn a blind eye to enrich them selves first at the expense of the poor common man. Thats why they all deserve the label thug.

      Now PF is sending another clueless delegation to the US to negotiate another BOND LOAN to use to service the $1.75 billion bond it took out last…

    • Friends bear with me. I had posted this on ZWD.
      “Let me hope ZWD shows my comments. Kariba dam is jointly owned. What happens if it is not repaired and water gushes out to the valley and land, animals and humans are submerged? Whether one likes it or not, Zambia has to protect is citizens, resources and ensure continuous generation of electricity. There are ways of recovering the money through buying off power from Zimbabwe at concessional price and recovering loan share over time. Since I do not trust ZWD to show my comments, I am going to put the same comments on Zambia Reports and Lusaka Times as well.
      Is ZWD propagating ‘Self destruction’ or annihilation of inhabitants of southern and central provinces? Is Mutati really a learned person? Is he a patriotic Zambian?”

    • Today I witnessed an incidence that opened my eyes on why people keep voting a certain way.

      A ‘irate’ client stormed a shop at Westgate and threatened the owner that unless he got concessions following a dispute that he would bring cadres to close the shop!! Right there along Freedom Way in broad daylight.

      The power of cadres. The jutzpah to demand benefits. The access to economic power and levers.

      That is what the cadres of all hues including the markets will hack for to protect!!

      Its the Munkombwe politics of the belly syndrome.

  1. We are kicking you out in 2016 because of R.B and doing away with the vision of Mr Sata(MHSRIP).

    On top of that, you have allowed abuse of authority by some Ministers like Christopher Yaluma who are firing people with no reasons or cause.

    • Why do you want people who care about the country be turned into praise singers of someone who is definitely taking the country into economic destruction? We are all Zambians and we are all going to be negatively affected with this economic downturn sooner than later. That’s what I see in all these comments that you don’t like-nothing personal. Its a pity that some of you chose to be blind to the truth deliberately.

  4. These are words of wisdom from Chagwa as long as he means them. At least I can see he is being very careful with the word. There is nothing as nice as peace whether you are a president or just a beggar on the street. Kudos to EL and please maintain preaching peace and you will even win my vote if I will cast one in 2016. Please EL note that I personally will closely monitor your level of wisdom and that will be my determining factor for giving you a vote. This goes for other presidential aspirants such as HH. I personally will not tolerate any level of careless talk and action for selfish motives. We have Zambia to take care of. The Future of our children lies in our hands. Presidency of the nation requires great wisdom and wisdom mainly comes from God.

  5. EASIER SAID THAN DONE. WE HAVE ALREADY HEARD THAT YOU SENT A MR FUBE TO MR NCHIMA TO TELL HIS BROTHER TO RESIGN OR FACE CONSEQUENCES AND BRUISES. AND THIS MR FUBE HAS BEEN RANTING INCOHERENTLY IN THE DAILY NATION TO PROTECT YOU. SO MR PRESIDENT DO NOT MAKE STATEMENTS WHICH YOU ARE ALREADY UNDOING. YOUR ASSOCIATION WITH RB IS A VERY RISKY VENTURE.

  6. The man really doesn’t care whether he is adopted in 2016 or not, after all he has already bagged some deals with some of the very rich dictators in Africa, black diamonds from Angola and DRC are already in his bag so why should he worry. Whether the kwacha falls like an eagle dropping from the sky, it does not affect him. He has got his hands on the cake. How naive for him to say that he is doing things in the interest of Zambian people when he is able to borrow money for another country. A high level delegation going to borrow money to service other debts. What plans does he have to aliviate poverty in the country? He is behaving like a headless chicken because he doesn’t know what to do. A dunderhead indeed.

If you were a honest and straight forward person you would have resigned the two posts you were holding before elections since you were a candidate. You held on to abuse the powers of that office. To hell with your lies. I say again cage your stupid violent cadres.

  10. Thank you Your Excellency for protecting the voiceless. Innocent people have been labelled NAREP, UPND, MMD, UNIP etc etc by your cadres including those working in your office (Presidential aides). They have even threatened to have civil servants dismissed on unfounded and malicious allegations that they belong to the opposition. Civil servants will only feel safe if such people are dismissed from the privilege of being your aides because working for you has gotten to ther heads and behave and boast that they act on your behalf. They exhibit an exaggerated sense of self importance as if they are the first ones to work for the Presidency, they have been others before them the list is long they should learn from George Chellah. Please Your Excellency remove such officers

He has human weaknesses just like all of us, but he is a good natured person who should not trade his character due to the temporal whims of power. Power comes and power goes.

  17. Real heads of state never use the words ‘I don’t care’ because in their position they are expected to care whatever the circumstances. Only dictators wielding limitless powers don’t care.
    Mr Lungu has finally admitted that he is under pressure from his PF on who he should/shouldn’t give a job. This is getting him more and more confused when he starts talking about his 2016 adoption.

Secondly, you are the one who will die early because of your stupidities. At least Lungu has booked himself a grave at embassy park but you will die a nobody. Your Edgar Lungu is so dull that he has let old men like Banda to control him. He is being remotely controlled by other wicked men. The kwacha is in a free fall because of his association with Mugabe. Just wait and see what will happen a month from now.

  25. No! No! please stop attacking UPND cadres. I’m not UPND and I once voted for Sata in 2011 against HH.

    But really at the bottom of my heart there was no merit in Edgar Lungu’s election except voting him into power on partisan lines not on merit. Those opposed to my views I challenge them to list even four reason of what they saw in Edgar Lungu if not partisan. I’m yet to see how he will perform for me to be convinced.

    Whether we attack UPND or not the situation in the country is bad. With the kwacha falling everyday. Any sensible person can not defend this and attack others because we are all feeling it.

    In Zambia we are not serious with our lives and country. We are so petty and easily influenced by job seekers like those who surrounded Lungu without analysing issues.

    This is the kind of partisanship I’m talking about. How can you get a loan on behalf of another country when their president who is nearing death can hold a birth day party worth $1 million.? Just on one person to spend that kind of money in a day on a birth day.
