FIRST Lady Esther Lungu has expressed her thanks to the multitudes of women that voted for her husband in the January 20 presidential election saying she is proud and humbled by their gesture.

Speaking during a meeting held with the Patriotic Front’s (PF) women’s league in Kasama on Tuesday evening, Mrs Lunguand urged them to remain principled.

And former first lady Vera Chiluba has called on the Patriotic Front (PF) in Northern Province to increase the party’s support base to ensure an easy victory for President Edgar Lungu in the 2016 general elections.

Speaking at the same event, Ms Chiluba announced that she had been tasked to strengthen the women’s movement through encouraging women empowerment schemes.

And Northern Province minister Freedom Sikazwe echoed Ms Chiluba’s sentiments by calling for reorganization of party structures following the confusion before the January 20 presidential elections which saw some party members endorse opposition leaders.

Ms Chiluba said members that betrayed the PF for money where an unprincipled lot.

She said she would work tirelessly to ensure President Lungu was re-elected come 2016 by working closely with women in the province.

She urged the women to form groups which would be empowered on her return with a team that would be assigned to return to the province.

And Mr Sikazwe beseeched Mrs Lungu to speak to the president so that he a go-ahead is for the party in the province to reorganize the party leadership.

Mr Sikazwe said the PF enjoyed massive support at grass root level which was being let down by a group of dissenters some of whom had since left the party.

    • Authenticity beyond description. Our very true naturally beautiful African mother figure with empathy and a calling of service above self. Mama Lungu deserves our encouragement and connection to humanitarian support institutions around the world. She needs to be connected and start tapping in the support she needs asap if she has to impact many lives among our under privileged.

      There is plenty of help out there that can be directed to such initiatives except that since the demise of Ruth Banda Sichone in the 90s, credible vehicles in which to channel and manage through massive support are not easy to find out there. Look at the likes of Maureen Mwanawasa who eat funds meant for HIV Aids patients. Time to support this passion and authenticity. Its time for development and common good.

    • It’s NOT you know. This is a cultural and traditional enactment.

      Any one with a brain and modicum of education will understand it in that vein.

      Get REAL. Be REAL. stop denying your culture.

  3. I hope those women who voted for Lungu are happy as they return to their “employment” on the streets selling salaula and chibwabwa.

  4. I wonder what Mrs Opposition Party has to say about those women. I mean,, the women who did not vote for Mr. Opposition.

    This ka Mrs Lungu is quite shallow,, sorry to say. I personally wish these women did not plunge into politics so we can keep them above and out of the public ridicule.

  7. Wonderful! Humbling oneself before those who elevate you is Christ Like.

    May I remind critics that Christ washed the feet of His Disciples.

    Even here in the UK, and USA people of note do humble themselves and do work for underprivileged people. Taking time in or out of Media eyes to Do for the less fortunate.

    Our beautiful, elegant First Lady is graceful in the execution of her duties. We are most lucky!

    We support her. Her look is elegantly Zambian.

  8. Why are Zambians soo gullible? The only way to say thank you is by bettering their live through economic empowerment. I could care less if she rolled in a heep of manure.
